Newsletter: SAACI Tshwane Branch | Oct 19

Greetings to all our valued Tshwane SAACI members and a special welcome to our many new members!

The KZN Congress is now a memory and we wait with eager anticipation for the announcement of the 2020 Congress scheduled to take place in Johannesburg.

 The Tshwane team enjoyed the KZN Congress and they returned home in high spirits after once again being voted SAACI’s Best Branch.

The year 2019 has been a difficult year in the business arena and we are grateful to be able to host amazing events that have been well supported by our members. 

Thank you to all our sponsors who constantly support our branch events, without their support we would not be able to offer our members the chance to win wonderful raffle prizes and to also attend events at beautiful venues.

Past Event Recap

In keeping with the Branch decision to keep healthy minds and bodies the AGM Mindful Meet Up Breakfast was hosted by CSIR ICC  with a guided meditation and soundscape session followed by the AGM business and a healthy breakfast.

Our August Women’s Day event at The Blades in Kameeldrift was very relevant in this high stress demanding environment we all find ourselves in.  We invited our members to an open discussion on how to Balance Work and Life and keep all the balls in the air. The guest speakers Nianell, Samantha le Roux, Irene Costa, Rochelle Pheiffer and Shanna Jacobsen set the ball rolling by telling us how they cope with the pressure of business, running a home and most of all taking time out for family.

The morning ended with us being entertained by Nianell, a performance that had us spell-bound listening to her beautiful voice and the emotion she imparts through music and song.

The Tshwane Branch committee is busy at present planning the next members event in January and our message to the members is – be prepared to be amazed.

At present we are all very busy with yearend preparations and before we know it, December will be upon us.


The branch has also incorporated a social media approach which integrates branch events and creative video production to further benefit branch members. The social media operation is headed by Bonde Kekana our Social Media Guru who has had extensive video production experience involving SAACI events and members nationally. The aim is to creatively enhance brands of both SAACI and the members through co-branding tactics that aim to grow the Tshwane branch in numbers and quality of engagement.
