Hello everyone

I thought I would take this opportunity to introduce myself to those of you who don’t know me.

I am an admitted attorney and have lived in Port Elizabeth my entire life, with the exception of 10 years, when I lived in the UK. I have a daughter, who is currently going through the “terrible threes”, and who makes me smile every day. I have been a member of SASLAW for a number of years, and decided to become more involved in the organisation in 2020 by accepting the part time post of administrator for the Eastern Cape region.

I would like to thank the EC SASLAW Committee for my appointment, as well as Clare Fincham, Di Cochran, Fatima Rustin, Pearl Mmaletsatsi Dabutha and Donovan Gaddin (IT) for giving me such a warm welcome and plenty of assistance. Finally, I need to thank Stacey Lee Bell, from whom I am taking over, for doing such a great job. Please note, however, that Stacey is not going anywhere, but will instead be concentrating on the running of the EC Pro Bono Clinic.

I am really looking forward to working with all of you.

Keep well and stay safe!

The Chapter held several committee meetings during this period.

Stacey Lee Bell administered the Chapter until end of February 2020. Clare Fincham ran the Chapter remotely until the end of May 2020 when Louise Bain took over as the administrator in June 2020.

We extend a special word of thanks to our outgoing President, Marion Fouche, who stepped down before the end of her term for reasons due to her health. Marion devoted countless hours to SASLAW over a period of well over a decade. Theo Potgieter led the Chapter until the end of the current term.

The activities of the Chapter were severely disrupted due to the Covid-19 outbreak. However, we aim to adjust to this new reality, which seems due to be with us for some time, and to find alternative ways of achieving our objectives.
