How Sanef works

Sanef’s Management Committee meets fortnightly by teleconference. The Council meets four times a year, and the annual general meeting is held mid-year. Sanef has an office in Richmond, Johannesburg, staffed by a full-time executive director and an administrator. Our running expenses are funded by the media industry, membership fees and donors. Our finances are audited annually and our fee-paying membership is by nomination.
