Membership Application


To become a SAHS member, please fill out the MEMBERSHIP FORM (click the text link to open in Google forms)

When you have filled and submitted the form, you will receive instructions on how to pay your membership fee sent to the email address you provide in the form (if you do not receive it, please check your spam folder). Student members are also required to submit their proof of registration.

Once payment is confirmed, you will receive your membership certificate for the year. (This can be used to claim SACNASP CPD points.)  

You will also be added to the SAHS google-groups email list (if you are not on it already). SAHS group emails are generally bi-weekly announcements of events, opportunities, and resources. If you do not wish to receive SAHS emails in your inbox, you can change your own settings to not receive mail. You will still be able to see the emails by visiting the google-groups site. Alternatively you can choose to unsubscribe completely.
