The Society once again welcomes its new and returning members to another year of inspired service, generative partnership, and engaged action. We thank you for your support towards building PsySSA into the mature and vibrant organisation that it is today.

The remarkable agility, skill and wisdom with which the PsySSA leadership navigated the 2020-2021 pandemic years – and the many significant milestones that it recorded during this particularly perilous time – attests to the evolutionary growth of the Society and points as much to the potentialities of PsySSA in 2022 and beyond. Notwithstanding the pandemic uncertainties and myriad other challenges that continue to plague our country and continent, it may very well be that we are currently on the threshold of yet another transition. As the transitions of the year begin to unfold, the current leadership is alert to the lessons and insights gleaned in the last twenty-four months, and equally to the feedback provided by our members. In particular, we are excited about what we envision as emerging portals of possibility and opportunity for the Society as we look to the future. To this end, the PsySSA Executive Committee has been hard at work – deliberating, planning and organising!

Recently, we asked you about Congress2022. An overwhelming majority of our members said YES! We are thus pleased to announce that the 26th Annual South African Psychology Congress will be held from the 26th to 28th October 2022SAVE THE CONGRESS DATE and stay connected with us for further updates on the conference, as well as other 2022 member offerings.

Finally, we remember and honour our recently deceased Past President Dr Helen Dunbar-Krige. Helen embodied the values of growth, relationality and service, and implanted these with loyalty and generosity into her leadership role within PsySSA. Her passing is a significant loss for the Society, and the many people and communities in whose lives she made an indelible imprint. We extend our deepest condolences and much love to her family, friends, colleagues and students. May Helen rest in peace and power.

In Solidarity,

The PsySSA Presidency
