mySAQA User Guide
Enter login name and password (1) associated with your mySAQA account. These fields ARE case sensitive! Note that you can opt to remain logged in for up to two weeks.
If you have forgotten your login name or experience problems, select Get Help (2). Enter the email address associated with your SAQA account and instructions will be emailed to you. Do not forward this email to anyone else - the link is only specific to you and your email address.
Please don't create a new account (3) from the login screen if you are an existing member. This will create a duplicate record that is not related to your existing membership at all. We do periodically review the database for duplicate records and can merge records. However, this does take time and resources.
If you have any problems, please contact us at email@example.com.
main login screen
Once you log in to mySAQA, you will see the main login screen. The shortcut menu is located in the top right (1) - this menu will display throughout mySAQA. An option to return to the main login screen is on this menu.
Your current membership status will display in the upper left (2). You can renew your membership or modify your auto-renewal settings.
Auto-Renewal: At the end of your current term, your membership will automatically renew. An email reminder will be sent a few days before this occurs. You will need to keep a valid credit card number on file.
On the mySAQA login screen, you can also find links to different account functions (3). More information is listed below.
Note: Anytime you select an option that you do not have access to, a message will display. This message will also display when your membership has lapsed and you attempt to view members-only content.

Depending on your location, you are assigned to a particular region. You will receive emails with regional information from your Regional Reps. If you are not sure which region you are in, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
While each group is different, some of the opportunities available include regional exhibitions, trunk shows, educational workshops, monthly meetings, and more!
You can also select a second region if you want to receive communications from that region as well. You are also eligible to enter regional exhibitions for that region as well.
The SAQA Journal is published four times a year. If you prefer NOT to receive the Journal in the mail, you can opt to have an email sent to you when the digital version is available.
