General Format - Stakeholder Meetings

Thu May 18, 2017 3:23 pm

The meetings will simply start with an invitation to comment on and give suggestions regarding the management plan. Should there be a large number of attendees, it will split up into smaller groups for easier facilitation of discussion. There are not "splinter discussions" for different topics. While scheduled to go until 16h00, this is only to accommodate extended discussions should the need arise. Previous meetings took a long time as everything needed to be translated for community members. The Berg&Dal meeting ended by 14h00, for example.

No agenda has yet been received, as Kruger officials are still discussing.

Further arrangements will be forwarded.

Thank you to Andre Spies for providing info promptly so far, when asked! \O

Breakaway sessions are still about basic question, not different questions, but there is no reason that we can't request that at a meeting. They are flexible! \O

Sadly will have go with written input as the Pretoria meeting is on a normal work day (makes it pretty much impossible to attend)

This chopping and changing of venues and times is shocking and unprofessional, but bring it on! :yes:

One must really not worry about registering online etc. It looks like the venues can take 150 plus, so no problem, just pitch and fill in the forms.

Also, don't worry about the format for questions suggested in the SP website section, or stakeholder emails. It is pretty much open, as it should be! \O

Online suggestions are open until 6 June, so time there too! 0/*

We can even forward stuff from the forum here...possibly better? X#X
