As Human Rights Day approaches, it is vital for us to think about people with physical disabilities. As an Institute our Mission is to be: "A Collective Voice Serving the Interests of Architects in Pursuit of Excellence and Responsible Design." As our mission suggests, architects are committed to providing solutions to give equitable opportunity for people with disabilities by designing buildings founded on sound universal access principals. Thus, I encourage you to read the contents of this Newsflash and reconsider the ways you approach universal accessibility in your designs.

You will no doubt be aware of the "Petition to dissolve current SACAP Board/Council due to Mismanagement of the Architectural Profession" circulated on multimedia over the past fortnight. You may also be aware of a television discussion held this past weekend on SABC 2 Morning Live, in which representatives of "Architects 4 Change" engaged the SACAP President, Yashean Luckan, on various items contained in the petition. SAIA have laid a complaint with the SABC for the use of the SAIA logo in the interview, as this will be misleading to the public, as SAIA were not party to the interview.
