Circular: Europe

We thank the organisers and the people manning the SABBS office in Europe for their many years of assistance and hard work. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for your time and dedication. We do hope we can rely on your continued involvement on the way forward.

The following procedures changes will be implemented immediately:
