Dear Bonsai People,
This will be the last email from me before the notice for the AGM in October 2019. My two years as President of SABA certainly never had a dull moment. It came with lessons not even my training could have prepared me for. It took so much time that I don't have any bonsais left, only bushes. I am looking forward to getting back to my trees. I wish you and SABA all the best for the future. Bonsai in South Africa is at a cross road and I hope in the end, there can be a place for all, not just a select few.
As you know, I will not be able to attend the AGM, as my faculty is hosting a conference (http://www.arts.uzulu.ac.za/conference/) and being one of the organizers I cannot take leave. With that in mind, please send me (to firstname.lastname@example.org):
1. Items for the agenda;
2. Nominations for Lifetime Achiever Awards;
3. Nominations for the EXCO in the following positions: President, Vice President and Secretary;
4. I need someone to take over the website from me. I will not be able to continue to look after it. If you are willing and able, please put your name forward. I would like this to happen before I leave the committee in October.
Wishing you all the best for the future and may bonsai continue to make you feel great!
