It’ Simply The Best: ECA(SA)’s Presidential Excellence Awards Gala Event will be held at Emperors Palace on 23 November 2023. Celebrating member’s excellence as well the association’s major developments as the QCTO accredited Solar PV Installation training provider in South Africa, there is just so much to celebrate.

This year’s stellar lineup includes world-famous entertainer, satirist and comedian Conrad Koch. Conrad is South Africa’s top co ventriloquist, and possibly the only one, and is a double International Emmy nominated comedian. His most famous puppet, Chester Missing, has won numerous awards in his own right, including being the first recipient of the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation’s Anti-Racism Award.

Since launching in 2012, the ECA(SA) Presidential Excellence Awards have grown – not just in size but also in importance, as more members recognise the significant value these awards add to their business, to staff morale and to their standing in the electrical contracting industry.

Open for entry!

The ECA(SA) Presidential Excellence Awards acknowledge those members who have achieved the highest standards in the electrical contracting industry.

Don’t underestimate your potential to win!

No matter the size of your company or the size of the project – past winners have achieved astonishing quality in large and small contracts. Trust your gut feelings: do you have that feeling that your projects exemplify excellence? Yes? Then enter!

But now here’s a challenge: approach the quality of your entry in the same way you approached that project. Get the best images you can. Cell phone images can work – just check your settings and make sure they are hi res, and if you’re shooting outside try for early mornings or pre-dusk for best natural light. The winners and their entries are showcased in the November-December issue of SA Electrical Contractor, and we can only use images that are print quality. And ask us at ECA(SA) for help. That is why we are here.
