Welcome to SAMA (82)


The NEW SAMA Community Area

The Old Discussion Board which only contained Forums is no more.

It has been replaced with a brand New SAMA Community Area which has:- Forums to keep up with all the latest news for members eyes only, which will include offers of free tickets/invitations for events offered to members (such as Invitations from the Not Forgotten Society, events, Buckingham Palace Garden Parties etc.). This is where member sensitive News and Announcements will be posted by the SAMA Office and Trustees.  There is also a Gallery for all your photographs - a Chat room to chat with other members who may be on line - a Blog facility for members to post their Blogs on - a Members list where you can check out who is registered in the Community as a Member and send them personal messages.  There is a Calendar Facility where events of interest to the Members can be posted by any member. 
ALL these areas are only able to be viewed by those members registered in the Community. 
So that makes all areas (including your photographs) as secure as possible to the members and away from prying eyes.

To register in the Community as a SAMA Member you must provide your SAMA Membership Details including your full three part SAMA Membership Number on the Form when registering, if you seem genuine but are not on the SAMA Membership List, then you will be registered on the Forums only as a Guest and be restricted to viewing the 6 Forums on the Public Category of the Forums ONLY, no other facilities will be available to you.  If you subsequently join SAMA (82) then when you inform the Admins they will change your registration to SAMA Member giving you access to all the facilities and the dozens of other Forums on the Members Only Forums part of the Community.

To go to the New Community, click on the Members Area and Forums link under the Picture above.
