Hi Sylvia -- as you know I opened the SAPTA group recently in Skills Universe

I wanted to know if there is a way in which I can send a message/ invite to all the members of Skills Universe advising them about SAPTA as whet we do will be of interest and benefit to all trainers in Southern Africa

Is there such a facility to share something with all as I cannot find it on the site

Please advise
Thanks
Adolph
