MSAAEA and FSAAEA
Writing out "Member of the South African Alternative Energy Association" on a business card is long winded, so the South African Alternative Energy Association (SAAEA) has created two abbreviations for Member Categories:
MSAAEA : Member of the South African Alternative Energy Association.
FSAAEA : Fellow of the South African Alternative Energy Association.
FSAAEA is a special abbreviation for members who have been members for more than ten years as well as honourary members who are given free life time membership due to contributions to renewable and alternative energy.
