It is with a heavy heart and much sadness that I am writing to you today to announce that since South Africa has been placed on Covid-19 adjusted alert level 4 we have had to take the decision to cancel the in-person element of our upcoming GAUTENG BRANCH ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING.
I was so looking forward to meeting you and for our industry to get together again and share our experiences and to show the country that meetings can take place under a regulated and safe environment, but unfortunately papa Cyril had other plans for us during his family meeting with the country on Sunday, 27 June 2021.
However, all is not lost as we will continue with our AGM plans, albeit under different circumstances, instead of meeting in person, we will see each other on our screens. I know it is not the same by a long shot, but at least it is better than nothing at all. One thing we have going for us at this time is technology, and this has enabled us to keep connected with loved ones, family and friends as well as colleagues and clients across the globe, much better than what the world had back in 1913 with the Spanish flu!
So I am encouraging you to join us virtually for the AGM, we have the same exciting speakers to share with you, as well as the latest industry update (sadly no wine tasting and food pairing, but I promise that just as soon as regulations allow, we will be rescheduling this get together, so that we can see each other face to face).
It is important that you attend the AGM as Glenton de Kock our CEO will use the opportunity to take you through the recently signed MOU with the City of Johannesburg “COJ|SAACI Business Tourism Collaboration” and what it means to you as a SAACI member and how you and your organisation can participate in and benefit from this agreement. Glenton will be available for you to ask any questions that you may have.
We have also arranged an incredible speaker to join us on the subject of “Creating Atomic Leaders” – How decentralised leadership will help to change our collective story. You do not want to miss this keynote talk by Janhendrik Oosthuizen, International Go-Giver Certified Speaker and Chief Vision Officer and CEO of the Reimagine group of creative agencies, which includes the advertising agency ETIKET, as well as the advertising incubator, Sum of 21.
The AGM will now be lived streamed on the FLOCK platform, all you will need to do is click on the below link on the day and time and the broadcast will be FREE!
