After five years of loyal and diligent service, Chad made the decision to leave FGASA and take on new career challenges. Chad joined FGASA at the start of 2018 and grew with the organisation helping FGASA reach where it is today. When the FGASA head office was relocated from Johannesburg to Hoedspruit Chad leapt at the chance to take his career to the Lowveld. In the two years since arriving, Chad has built himself an incredible community of friends, found love and built a rewarding a fulfilling life. We congratulate you Chad and thank you for your professionalism, attention to detail and efficient service to FGASA over the last five years. While we are sad to say goodbye, we are extremely proud of you, how far you have come and know that a bright future lies ahead for you!

Ashleigh has been an incredible asset to the FGASA team for over two years, she too has been offered an opportunity to expand her career further and we couldn’t be happier for her. Ashleigh is warm and welcoming; her generosity and hospitality has given our members confidence and peace of mind. Ashleigh’s incredible attention to detail and unshakable ethics has brought a great deal of structure and organisation to FGASA. Ashleigh was also the main driver behind the expansion and increasing signups and partnerships of the Junior FGASA courses. The Junior FGASA courses are perfect for any young person interested in one day becoming a Nature Guide or simply learning more about the natural wonders of South Africa. Ashleigh, we are extremely grateful for the service you have provided at FGASA for the last two years and we are sad to say goodbye. Your new career adventure is awaiting you and we know you are going to flourish there as you have flourished at FGASA. We sincerely wish you all the best!
