Northern Branch invites you to the 2019 BGM
Tuesday 23 July 2019
BGM, tour through the Innovation Centre at 3M and "Food in the Now" presentation by Ms Shamla Moodley, Marketing Manager at Anchor Yeast
Dear Northern Branch members,

Two years have nearly passed since our last BGM, and as our much-awaited Congress is approaching, we would like to invite you to our BGM, where a new committee for the Northern Branch will be elected. As so many of our younger members have not yet seen the Innovation Centre at 3M, we will have a 30-minute tour before a short presentation by Shamla Moodley, followed by the BGM. Please remember to nominate people to serve on the committee or make yourself available! It is a great experience.

See you all at the BGM!

Chair: SAAFoST Northern Branch (2017-2019)
