The 2nd annual September National Imbizo to be held from 23-25 September is only weeks away. After the success of the 2010 gathering we hope to host yet another important platform for blacks seeking real and meaningful change. This year, the conference will be in Durban and preparations are already underway for what will certainly be a crucial mark in the history of post-94 black resistance against ANC anti-black governance.
Below are the logistical details that you must please pay close attention to.
All people wishing to attend the conference must register. Registration will be open from TUESDAY 26 July 2011 and end on FRIDAY 2 September 2011. The compulsory registration fee is R250 for adults and R150 for students, pensioners and ALL delegates who currently live in and around Durban and will not require accommodation.
To register, fill in the registration form and email/fax it together with your proof of payment. Find the registration form on the SNI facebook page or email us on: email@example.com for a copy.
SPECIAL OFFER: The first 25 people to register by 5 August 2011 will get FREE ACCOMMODATION so make sure you register within the said date to take advantage of this offer.
***Please note: Registration been extended to Monday 12 September and payments can be made until Friday 16 September. To get a form send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org***
We encourage all delegates who live outside of Durban to stay with relatives or friends who live in the city. SNI has a simple policy regarding funding: the SNI is OUR initiative and we should fund it ourselves. This means that funds are very limited and those who are able to find accommodation with family or comrades must please do so. In the event however, that you cannot find someone to stay with, you will be required to pay R100 towards accommodation (in addition to the R250 registration). This must please be paid at the same time as the registration fee.
The SNI will provide 5 meals over the two days namely: Friday supper, Saturday: breakfast, lunch and supper and on Sunday a brunch.
All delegates are expected to fund their own transportation to and from the conference. You are encouraged, where possible; to travel with other delegates in your province as this may prove to be slightly cheaper. If you prefer to travel alone, then book early and watch out for bus and airline specials.
The exact details of the programme are being finalized by the content team. What can be confirmed at this stage is that the official opening will start on Friday 23 September at 18:00 and the weekends line up will end on Sunday 25 September at 13:00. The final programme will be sent as soon as possible but will include: a review of the last year, an international scholar who will engage us via Skype, a panel discussion on Black Consciousness, an evening of performances and much more.
Remember there are limited seats for the conference so book yours early!
