Support Meetings

The process of organising support meetings in the regions is placing a considerable strain on the executive members, with only limited local people volunteering to support this process.  As you can imagine finding venues, paying for advertising and flying people to the various regions to run meetings (often for limited turn out of members) is a costly and time consuming business.  It requires further application for funding that places additional load on our volunteers on the executive.  We have therefore decided to provide our support mostly via the website.  The "Contact" page provides further opportunitiy to ask specific questions that will then be answered via email or phone with advice being provided by our medical advisor, product specialists and/or fellow CPAP users.  Where of general interest answers to these questions will also be added without names to the questions page on the website.  If you need support at any time members can also phone Jill on 021344253.  If not already a member but needing some individual support or guidance you can join SAANZ for $15 here.
