The PSSA Council is proud to announce the unveiling of the organization’s brand new website. The launch is the culmination of many months of planning and hard work. Prof. Faadiel Essop commented that the idea of a new website stems from a strategic planning session by Council that was held early 2013, shortly after his and Dr. Loos’ elections as President and Secretary/Treasurer, respectively.
‘’It is part of several strategic initiatives to enhance the image and profile of the PSSA, and at the same time to also provide additional value to our membership’’, Essop stated. The website features a new on-line membership application procedure and also a ‘’members only’’ area (login required). The website is a work in progress and several areas will be strengthened over the next few months, e.g.establishment of a database of laboratory expertise available within the region, profiles of Physiologists and their research niche areas, etc.
This should allow for enhanced networking among PSSA members and potential sharing of expertise and equipment. Prof. Essop thanked all those who contributed to the establishment of the new PSSA website, and also commended the technical work completed by the NetMechanic team (especially Garth, Stephen and Ronel).
