AIG ACTION CRICKET/SOCCER

AIG Soccer/Cricket


This very popular event (was over-subscribed within days of the entry form becoming available) took place at the Action Arena Centre in Durban North on the 8/5/2015.

Ten teams took part and from the report backs received everyone had a great time with the eventual winners (after some extremely hard fought tussles) being the team from ALEXANDER FORBES.

Once again a BIG THANK YOU must go to AIG for their generous sponsorship and I have no doubt this event will only get bigger and better next time.

  • CPD update (including FSB update on CPD and what about RE2)

UNDELIVERED NEWSLETTER EMAILS
TAKE NOTE:

Several members advised that they are not receiving the newsletter. After some investigating we have established the main reasons for not receiving the e-mails are as follows:

  • Spam filter - This would be due to the email appearing in the users junk mail.
  • Block list - Often if people receive marketing mailers, they may opt to unsubscribe, if they do this, they are automatically added to a "Block list". As long as an email appears in the list, no matter how many times it is added to the distribution list, it will not send to the recipient.
Please check to see that the e-mails are not in either the Spam Filter or Block List.
