WLC


This year’s PSSA Congress which is combined with the International Wildlife Convention in Kruger promises to be a most worthwhile and enjoyable event but I know that many of you are querying why it is costing so much.  So, I thought we should share the breakdown of costs with you just to reassure you that PSSA is not in it to make money.

The accommodation is as per SANParks rates – there is no discount for bulk so we all pay the standard rates.

SANParks also charges us a daily rate for the conference venue and the cost for the use of it, including teas and 5 lunches and 6 dinners (one of which is the banquet) which they are providing at a total of R3100-00 per person for the six days.  Subtract this from the R3600-00 that we are charging members and you’ll see that our actual “congress fee”, which has to cover all our other expenses is only R500-00.  The rest of the fee as per the tables provided on the Wildlife Convention website make up for accommodation.

I know that doesn’t make it any less expensive for you but the photographic experience and opportunity to learn from the experts make it money well spent.
