SAIV Newsletter

From the GM's Office

The month of March got off to a busy start with our President, Tracey Myers and I having the opportunity to attend AGMs and seminars at all five of our  Branches across the country.

Although our limited time did not allow me the chance to put my feet in the sand and sea, that we so often long for in the concrete jungle of Gauteng, it was rather wonderful to put names to faces of members, mingle and get to the business of the day in the KZN, Eastern Cape and Southern Branches.

QR code scanning and registration was implemented at all branches and the responses have been absolutely phenomenal! I am currently in discussion with SACPVP to enable your CET points automatically uploaded onto your SACPVP profile, streamlining the process and making things a little easier for you.

We recently sent through a Membership survey for you to complete; thank you to all who took the time to complete it. To those that haven’t, the survey is available here Please take a few minutes to complete it.

Here is a sneak peek at some of the responses received from the survey:
I like the fact that the institute always endeavours to keep the valuations industry relevant and updated with international trends and related activities. I like the effort made in creating more than just business relationships with Valuers but also a sense of family and belonging.”

It is the best known and most respected voluntary organisation for our profession, in South Africa. It is also a mouthpiece and a provider of essential statutory continued professional training.”   

We are situated in areas where there are never any events, thus the preference of 2 or longer day seminars. It is expensive attending these events. ± R10 000 per event.”

We are hard at work ensuring that we provide webinars and pre-recordings so that even those in remote areas will have access to the same information in real time and/or just slightly delayed.

“Not just presentations. Smaller groups would work better.”

You will be very pleased to know that the KZN Branch is planning a two-day seminar in August, to be held in the Drakensberg which is ideally located for members from the Central, North and KZN regions. This seminar will involve some very interactive sessions. More information will be shared soon!

Please take the time to submit your survey and let us serve you better.

The next few weeks will have us all glued to our screens and radio stations as we eagerly wait to see who will be entrusted with leading South Africa over the next four years.

Lastly, our SAIV National Seminar is scheduled to take place shortly after the elections on the 16th and 17th May! It is being held at the NH Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset West in the Western Cape.

This year’s seminar promises to be yet another action packed and informative National Seminar. This will be a historic National Seminar as we will be celebrating the 110th anniversary of the! On Thursday 16th May there will be an AGM and gala dinner. With the full day seminar hosted on Friday 17th May that includes a very exciting line up of speakers!
Details will be sent soon. Please save these dates.

Till next time, take care.
