The 2009 CABSA AGM was held on Saturday morning 9 May 2009 at the DRC Helderberg in Somerset West.

It was again a time for the CABSA 'family' to share and communicate. 

The morning started with a meeting of the CABSA staff and the Western Cape facilitators who were able to attend.  It was wonderful to see old friends and meet new ones. 

The formal AGM consisted of a Power Point Presentation (available below) highlighting a few key points from the Annual Report.  (The electronic version of this and previous Annual Reports are available online. If you would like a higher resolution version, please send me an e-mail).  The report was accepted by the meeting. 

The new constitution of was proposed and accepted.  The main changes to the constitution comprise a smaller board and the creation of "Friends of CABSA".  Individuals and organisation who share our vision will be able to apply to become "CABSA Friends". 

Our passionate spokesperson, Zane Meas, shared his vision for restored, Christian, fatherhood.  He emphasised how important the role of the father is in forming a healthy self image in children, especially girls.  This would assist children to make healthy and positive choices, including choices about their sexuality.

CABSA and CARIS had tables available with resources and materials for sale.  This was however not limited to our organisation.  We also had tables and presentations from organisations in the area, including our hosts, Helderberg DRC and Cotlands, Connect Network and CLF. 

A Friendly CABSA welcome from Meloney, Lucinda and Jerry
