The Safrea National Exco and Oversight Committees 2013/14 have put together a strategic development plan (SDP) to be implemented over the next two years. The aim is to develop Safrea into a streamlined and effective organisation that can serve its members to their best advantage.
Advances in technology have made it easier to work from home and the communications field is particularly suited to this. At the same time, more and more skilled professionals have found themselves out of work as companies have tightened their belts. Rather than carry the costs of staff positions, employers are turning to freelancers or contractors to fill their requirements.
The Safrea constitution underwent an intensive review during the first quarter of 2012, resulting in a revised constitution being issued during May 2012.

Safrea is run by volunteer committee members and one part-time administrator. The committee structure is as follows:
The Safrea administrator emails reminders and invoices to members when their fees are due. If you have not received a reminder and think one is due, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request information.
If you know your fees are due and you know the amount, you can use the details here to make your payment.
