A new season is coming

Over the past few years SAICE has emphasised a strong urgency for young member participation and as such, has begun to filter across all discussions and plans of action within the organisation. This extended into Council’s call for an update in SAICE’s Constitution which incorporates the voices of young members in the organisation’s decision making processes.
