SAMRA Annual General Meeting 2017

The 2017 Annual General Meeting of the Members of the Southern African Marketing Research Association (SAMRA) was postponed until 28 August 2017 as a result of quorum requirements not being met on 2 August 2017. 

Date: 28 August 2017 from 14h00 to 17h00
RSVP By: 25 August 2017
Proxy Deadline: 26 August 2017 by 14h00
Venue: 

  • Online: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/5614907200402390019 
  • SAMRA Office: Ground Floor (Regus Office 33), Twickenham Building, The Campus, Corner Main and Sloane Street, Bryanston, Johannesburg, 2191 South Africa

The Annual General Meeting is a business meeting and it is not open to guests. All paid-up current SAMRA Honorary, Organisation, Associate and Independent members may attend subject to submission of RSVP. SAMRA Independent Members and Organisation Member representatives (including Honorary Members) can vote at the meeting, or may appoint a proxy to attend (form attached), participate in and vote at the meeting. If you are unable to join us, PLEASE appoint a proxy to attend and vote on your behalf. Your proxy does not have to be a SAMRA member but must attend the meeting (in person or online).

Please make every effort to join us! Decisions made at the AGM determine what SAMRA does in the year ahead, and how the industry operates in the local, regional and global insights community. We need you at the AGM (in person or online) to make up a quorum that legally constitutes the AGM and thus to make the decisions required to ensure the growth of our industry. Moreover, without the approval of the financial statements, auditors, and Directors at the AGM, SAMRA cannot operate legally. This will be a challenging and interesting year for the industry, in the light of changing privacy requirements globally, continued budget pressure and changes in the make-up of the industry: we have to ensure representation of our industry. 

As this is a postponement, those who are present in the meeting on 28 August 2017 will constitute a quorum.
