Do you have Any Questions?
Is Membership Only Open to Black Students?
The BMF continues to be the primary black management organisation in the country. Although the strategic focus of the BMF is on black managers, our policy and philosophy is non-racial. To that end our membership was opened to all races in 1989. It comprises individual members from diverse managerial disciplines.
How Do I Become a Member?
Students can become members of societies throughout the academic year. During the annual O-week the student organsations showcase themselves on the Jameson Plaza. Here students can sign-up with the societies that interest them and they can either have the subscription fees charged to their student accounts or pay cash to the cashiers in the Steve Biko Students’ Union. If students miss the O-week sign up period they can come to the Societies Helpdesk on Level 5, Steve Biko Students’ Union or contact Societies to sign up with a society or get more information. Students may join societies throughout the year and may pay through their fee accounts until 30 April or alternatively can pay cash at the Student Treasury on Level 5, Steve Biko Students’ Union.
Where Do You Host Your Events?
We host a number of events both on and off-campus. Our keynote speaker events are hosted on-campus to enable students to attend after classes. Our corporate networking events are hosted off-campus as application to attend those events is required. Transportation is provided.
