The Executive Committee of the Society has changed with the exception of the Treasurer - Sakkie Nel and Paul Kloeck.

Facts that may be important to Clivia growers are:

National Environmental Management Act (NEMA).  Application for exemption of Clivia, which is a listed plant in terms of the Government Gazette, will be submitted.  Hopefully Clivia plants in gardens and all breeding, pollinating and seed selling will be exempt.  Export of Clivia in any form and collection in the wild will probably need a permit.  At present, theoretically all Clivia owning, growing and transporting requires a permit. 
Conference in Pietermaritzburg on the 18th of September at the Royal Show Grounds together with the Natal Tribune Garden Show.
The requirements for exporting plants has changed and perhaps Lionel Bester is the best source for the necessary requirements.
Future publications of the Society will be one Yearbook and three Newsletters.  Yearbook 14 and 15 have been published and are due for posting to Society members.  Photos of 2013 Show winners in Yearbook 15.
A list of all Clivia judges is being compiled and will be distributed to all Clubs and interested parties. 
All Clivia Show days in the RSA will be distributed by mid June.
Tour to the Caulescens indigenous areas in September is being arranged by James Abel should anyone be interested.
Next AGM of the Society in Joburg in May next year.
Gideon is working on the Clivia Society web site, converting the format to Word Press.  The site will provide a  body of useful information with contact e-mail addresses but not be interactive like the Forum.
 -Should any further details be required please contact myself or Maylene the new Secretary. (011-706-2660)
Calvin Becker has been researching bacterial, fungal and viral diseases in Clivia and he will present talks at the Conference in September.
Regards,
Glynn Middlewick
