I love being outside, I do a lot of hunting. -Sam Hunt
Executive Officer’s Report 2016
By Chris Jennings
Our Association has experienced a year with various challenges, some of which have been manifested over the past couple of years – the most notable of which is outflow of our financial reserves due to arrear payments for VAT. In addition, unexpected membership cancellations and the direct and indirect effects of the prevailing drought have compounded these challenges. These issues will be covered in the President’s report and the Financial Report in more detail.
Revenue from Hunting Licences issued from the office this year totalled R13 447.00 (R12 569.00 in 2015).
