itSMFsa closing down details

The itSMFsa will cease as a company on the 31st December 2017.

It is sad that we have had to close down, but the process is nearly complete. There has been insufficient interest for it to be worth-while maintaining it as an organisation.

The board would like to thank all the hundreds of volunteers, through the years, who have made such great contributions to the itSMFsa Logo. It has been a vibrant organisation, with many interesting events, the chance to meet interesting people, and at the conferences, the chance to learn of industry trends, speak to peers, and have fun.

The auditors are finalizing the books and the official close date will be the 31st December 2017. The itSMFsa web-site will be maintained as a mainly static site, with updates from the itSMF International and itSMF events. The blog will be open to members who wish to use it.

The name, itSMFsa, will be reserved as well, so that, if desired, it can be re-activated in the future.

The funds that remain will be donated to the itSMF International.

If you have been a member of the itSMFsa, and wish to continue to be a member of the itSMF, you can join the itSMF International’s global programme ( here: itSMF International Membership ), or you can become a member of any chapter that suits you.

The itSMFsa will, after that, be an informal community. If you wish to have an event under the banner of the itSMF, please let me know the details, and I can put it up on the site. Write to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.




SMEXA '13 is drawing closer and as a typical type A personality I run numbers. I count, count again and will double check the double check.

Which brings me to a tender point: Why have you not registered yet? yes you... third form the right

Considering that you can earn CPE points, build valuable lasting professional relationships and as valued members of the community, your attendance breathes life into IT Service Management.

Sometimes seen as the elephant in the room in IT industries it is time to be heard and not just seen and our speakers for 2013 illustrate this more than ever before.

If you have not heard of Michael Jackson, Gary Hardy, Richard Cascarino or Craig Rosewarne... what have you been doing?

Sponsors include APMG, HP, T-Systems, Marval and a host of others bringing the big boys to the party.

Now we just need you...
