ECA(SA)’s Cape Town Branch has seen a lot of change over the last year. But top of mind at the branch’s AGM on 7 November 2023, the first order of business was to acknowledge the passing of George Senekal. George served the ECA(SA) over many decades, including the Meadowdale Training Centre in Germiston, and most recently as Training Manager at ECA Cape Town’ Branch Training Centre. For all attending, it was a somber moment, as all who knew George recognised the exceptional nature of his service, and the impact of his loss to the ECA. ECASA holds George in its collective memory, and wishes his wife, Lioni, and family all the strength and support over this difficult time. George will not be forgotten.

Much to look back on, much to anticipate
