- Guild Meeting
Our Annual General Meeting brings us together once a year. It is a great privilege for your EXCO to carry your mandate, and it is with a great sense of satisfaction that we present to you a summary of all our activities for the past year.
This is an election year and we invited nominees to stand for election to serve on our Executive Committee for a 2yr period. Sadly, we bid farewell to three of our EXCO members who have opted to stand down, and I extend a special word of thanks to Ashley Dowds, Motlatji Mjamba and Shadi Chauke for their sacrifice and their contributions as ambassadors for our Guild.
Shadi Chauke asked to be excused prior to the expiry of her term, and we are enormously grateful that Hungani Ndlovu accepted a nomination and was elected to that post last year. It is only fitting that I acknowledge him officially at this AGM and thank him for the exceptional work he has conducted for SAGA. As required by our constitution, Ashley’s and Motlatji’s posts will be filled by the process of election, and we thank all our members who exercised their voting rights to appoint our new EXCO volunteers, who we will introduce later at this meeting.
I wish to thank all members of our EXCO for their diligence in the day-to-day management of SAGA business. My sincere thanks to our Administrator Diakanyo Huma, our labour partners UASA, our Skills Workshop Project Manager Siyabonga Mngoma, our media manager and copywriter, Christopher van der Westhuizen, and our legal advisor Kelly Kropman, who have all carried out their duties with unfailing dedication.
Most importantly, I thank all SAGA members for the trust you place in us and for being the reason our Guild has grown into a relentless force for industry change. We are proud to serve you.
