Application for membership is done electronically at the Join Button (top right corner of Website frame)

We advise any prospecting new member to seriously consider NOT TO JOIN NHSA if you cannot be reached electronically via Email (be that on a computer, IPad device, or a Smart Phone), as we ONLY communicate with our members through electronic means.

All your interactions with NHSA must also be done electronically - we have NO capacity to do any work on paper. 

It is also unethical of us to take your money for a service we cannot 100% deliver in your favour.

At NHSA we do not communicate with members through third parties due to our adherence to the stipulations of the PoPI Act (Act 4 of 2013)
