Following the SATSA AGM vote, Hannelie and David represented SATSA at the recent SAYTC Conference which took place in Port Elizabeth. SAYTC members were thrilled to hear that SATSA members had voted to continue with merger discussions and unanimously voted in their approval of the merger process.
Spending time with the SAYTC team and their members reinforced our belief that the merger will benefit both associations as SAYTC offers unique, grassroots level tourism experiences and have done much work in transformation. From a SATSA perspective, we offer a strong voice for the industry and a streamlined administrative background.
We will continue the negotiation process and keep our members updated with any progress.
