In response to the excellent turnout at the ECA(SA)’s Open Day in Mahikeng in March this year, the ECA’s Highveld Regional Director, Chris Koen and Exco chairman, Frans Swanepoel are now going full steam ahead to establish a new ECA branch in the North West Province (north).
Chris says the ECA needs a quorum of at least 20 members in good standing to make the new branch a reality and appeals to members to attend the meeting at Buffalo Park Lodge in Molopo Road in Mahikeng on 2 October. Once the branch has been officially established, an election will be held to elect a chairman and a vice-chairman for the new branch. “The benefits for members are obvious: they won’t have to travel far to attend meetings, and they will have their own local vendor who will supply books of Certificates of Compliance,” says Chris.
Frans Swanepoel says when the new branch is established, three branch meetings a year will be held in Mahikeng with an AGM being held at the last meeting of the year.
The ECA’s Highveld team will be at the Buffalo Park Lodge for the whole day on 2 October to assist electrical contractors in the Mahikeng region who would like to know more about ECA membership or who need assistance with Department of Labour registrations. Chris Koen and the Highveld Technical Adviser, Anthony Schewitz will present a Certificate of Compliance refresher course at 11am at a special rate of R250 for members and R400 for non-members.
All electrical contractors are welcome to attend. Light refreshments and snacks will be served.
The Highveld region currently has five branches: Wits (Johannesburg), Ermelo (Mpumalanga), Klerksdorp (Northwest), Vaal, and another on the West Rand. “With the members’ help, there will soon be a Northwest (north) branch,” says Chris.
Where: Buffalo Park Lodge, 59 Molopo Road, Mahikeng
