Application for SASAS membership

Membership is open to any suitably qualified person involved with animal production whose activities may contribute to the scientific knowledge of animal production or to its application to agriculture.  Membership is open to citizens of all countries world-wide, and application from other countries in Africa and developing countries of the world, in particular, are encouraged.

Since 2019, when SASAS introduced a new website, everybody must complete the application form to apply for or renew their membership by registering and paying their membership fees with Instant EFT, CREDIT & CHEQUE CARDS AND MASTERPASS on the website. Once you have completed the application and gone through the process once, you only renew your membership for the next year.

Members and non-members are entitled to publish in the South African Journal of Animal Science (subject to acceptance following peer-review) at a publication fee of R 1500.00 (non-members R 3000.00) (US$ 250.00 for overseas), and in the Applied Animal Husbandry & Rural Development section of this website.

Application form

Other advantages of membership include access to important notices posted on this website, access to the “members’ login” and Council news, access to the database of members, reduced rates for congress registration and discounted rates for placement of advertisements on the website. Members are also entitled to join special interest and regional groups constituted within the Society (Free State Branch, KwaZulu-Natal Branch, Northern Region Branch, Eastern Cape Branch and Western Cape Branch – contact details under “Contact info” on SASAS website) at nominal rates.  The annual membership fee for members (2020) resident in South Africa and other SADC countries, is R900.00 (R 150.00 for student membership) and US$ 80.00 for members in the rest of Africa and overseas countries.
