Focus 2016-2018

Since being [re]formed in 2008, each of the three SACC Standing Committees have continued to change focus, energy and vision on account of various factors.  Earlier this year, each committee, in consultation with the Executive Committee, considered the direction of their responsibility for the various Priorities, with reference to 2015 Onwards, to which many people contributed last year.
