The Safrean: Bringing You the Latest News in
Southern African freelancing
MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAIR
I’m feeling quite energised from this past month which saw some great SAFREA initiatives being actioned. As our organisation begins to make waves, I want to be sure you’re all aware of the part you play in the success we’re seeing. There's enthusiasm geared towards regional events and a sense of pride around our organisation as a whole. I'm thrilled to say it's really starting to have a positive effect.
I received a warm welcome from the Guateng North and South branches, who got together for the first time at an event last month. I had the opportunity to meet the members and chat about what's in store for SAFREA in the months ahead.
The Western Cape held a great event in August, which you can read about under SAFREA in the News
, below. Not only did we have superb speakers, but we also had a great turnout thanks to the regional members using their social media channels to get the word out to the public. We also experimented with Meetup.com, which allows you to create a local group that anyone can join. We had over thirty attendees who found our event through Meetup.com. I encourage you all to take advantage of this great tool for your upcoming events. Also, please remember to post events on the SAFREA website. If your regional committee hasn’t done so, pop them an email asking what gives?
Without a write up after the event, no one will know what they missed.
If you're reading this and thinking, am I losing my mind or is SAFREA partnering up a storm?
You're right! Look out for exclusive job postings on our website thanks to a developing partnership with MPULL

Again, pat on the back to all of you for the shift we’re seeing. Keep up the good work! Kindly,
