Notice: Special General Meeting to determine the future of the HRA.

In alignment with the commitment outlined in the December Chairman’s letter, a Special General Meeting will be convened to deliberate on the future of the HRA. 

This necessity arises from the ineligibility for re-election of most current EXCO members, a general decline in member support, and substantial changes in the public domain.

Established in the mid-1960s, the HRA has significantly contributed to life in Hermanus, boasting a membership that once reached 1650. However, with fewer than 200 paid-up members in 2023 and no volunteers to sustain organizational activities, it is imperative to reassess our purpose.

Members are encouraged to explore and propose alternative modes of operation or structural adjustments suitable for current circumstances during the meeting.

If you are unable to attend in person or participate remotely but wish to express your views, kindly share them with us at 
[email protected], accompanied by a completed proxy form at least 48 hours before the meeting.

This marks a pivotal moment in the existence of the HRA, and we strongly encourage your active participation. Please inform us via email whether you prefer to attend in person or through Zoom.

UPDATE: Refreshments will be provided. In order to ensure an adequate supply, we would appreciate that members who will attend in person to please RSVP by clicking the button below, or by sending an email to [email protected].
