Membership and purpose of the society

Whether you are a seasoned knowledge management practitioner or just interested in the field, KMSA provides a network of like-minded people, willing to share their expertise.

Participants are from all walks of life, including public and corporate sectors, academia and consultants, who connect monthly by webinar. Other activities include a lively WhatsApp chat group, regular newsletters and an annual conference. We source content for our meetings both locally and internationally. 

Our membership model focuses on the individual practitioner, but we also offer group membership rates for institutions employing multiple practitioners. For a single annual group fee of R5 000, the full benefits of membership can be enjoyed by several individuals across the organisation.
