On behalf of the IMASA Knights, I wish the Treasurer General & Chairperson of Gauteng Branch, Mr Derek Gouws a speedy recovery from his knee surgery.

Good luck! to one of the IMASA founders, Mr Stefan Bosman from Limpopo Branch, who has retired from local government as on 28 February 2019. We wish him well with his new endeavors and still open a door for him to become an associate member.

The North-West Branch (now known as Bokone-Bophirima Province), you are encouraged to regain the momentum once again! Remember your outstanding work as a leading branch year after year! You can still make it!

The National Management Committee (NMC), had successfully held its 1st 2019 meeting on the
22 February 2019. Amongst others, the NMC resolved on the following:

1. To pursue the registration of IMASA as a Professional body with SAQA.
2. Revive the inactive branches by starting with possible visits to Mpumalanga and Kwazulu- Natal provinces.
3. Establish an Advisory Committee and re-establish portfolio committees to support the objectives of the Institute.

It is with great honor and gratitude for the NMC to allow me to attend the 73rd IIMC Annual
Conference in Birmingham, Alabama, USA from 19-22 May 2019.

All members are reminded to pay their 2019 membership fees and remember that it is a responsibility for all of us to take IMASA to greater heights!

Winnie Baloyi

IMASA President
