On 21 June 2011 the Eastern Cape Branch of the SAOUG held their first event of 2011 in the Senate Hall of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (North Campus) in Port Elizabeth. Altogether 34 delegates attended the event.

Hennie Rautenbach and meeting delegates
 Hennie Rautenbach gave a most interesting and entertaining talk on Social Networking: tips and tricks. One of the delegates remarked afterwards that Hennie could easily have started earlier and given a lengthier talk as there was so much that all of us learnt from him.

Susan Scheepers, who has the portfolio on SAOUG Membership, told delegates more about SAOUG’s aims, interests and functions, and encouraged delegates to join.

Madeleine Claire was elected as the EC Branch Meetings Organizer, and Pelisa Hlanga as the EC Branch Honorary Secretary.

After the event, delegates enjoyed a finger lunch.
