Due to the present COVID-19 situation, all arei activities including the AGM will be suspended for a further year.
19 August 2020
Dear AREI Members,
COVID-19 has brought the world to a standstill, well, almost. As we have adapted to all the changes, our priority has been to ensure that our health and wellbeing are preserved. Equally so, our businesses and jobs. Because of this, AREI activities have also taken a back seat. Our annual breakfast, always a great success and opportunity to rub shoulders with colleagues and other members, could not take place this year.
Our annual financial report is usually finalized by end of August, and this is followed by our AGM which is held in September. Because of the current COVID-19 situation, the AREI committee has agreed that we change the financial year end to December for this year. The Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) has accepted our request for the change.
The committee also decided that we will hold our AGM in January 2021. Date still to be confirmed.
We want to thank you for your understanding and continued support. Please feel free to contact us, if you have any questions or comments.
