How Sanef works

The SANEF council is elected every two years at an elective AGM. Our most recent AGM was held on 25 June 2022. This was an elective AGM.  Our council meets four times a year.

The SANEF Management Committee includes the Chair, Deputy Chair, Secretary General, Treasurer, Media Freedom Chair, Western Cape Regional Chair, KZN Regional Chair, Gauteng Regional Chair and Eastern Cape Regional Chair. The Management Committee holds a teleconference once every two weeks.

There are a number of SANEF sub-committees.

The SANEF Office is run on a day-to-day basis by the Executive Director, Programme Manager and Administrator.
