South African Urogynaecology Association (SAUGA)

Invitation for Membership

SAUGA is an association for health professionals with an interest in female pelvic organ prolapsed and incontinence. SAUGA was formed in 2005 and has informal but continuous contact with the International Urogynaecology Association (IUGA). We intend formalizing our relationship with IUGA. This will enable substantial new benefits for both parties and specifically bring extra benefits to our members. For this we need confirmation of our members' updated payments for 2012.

You are hereby invited to become a member of SAUGA or renew existing membership for 2012. This will qualify you for discounted tariffs at our meetings, entitle you to a new electronic newsletter that was initiated by the Cape group and will consist of news and reviews. The annual membership fee is R200.00. Registrars and physiotherapists pay R100.00 per year. Payments can be made electronically or by cheque.
