IT’S ALL ON FOR THE CIVILUTION CONFERENCE 2016!


Steven Kaplan COO of SAICE and Devi Paulsen, CEO of Hypenica (Pty) Ltd, met on 15 September 2015 to formalise the partnership agreement for the Congress which is set to take place at Gallagher Estate in Midrand, Gauteng between 9 – 10 May 2016. The theme of the congress centres around accountability, and hopes to re-position engineering to its rightful place, to utilise engineering skills assets to the full, to actively work towards removing hindrances that preclude engineering practitioners from doing what they should be doing, and to approach things differently over the next decade.
 

CIVIL TALKing ACCOUNTABILTY!


On 17 September 2015, SAICE held its 3rd Civil Talk for the year at its national office in Midrand. The discussion, entitled Accountability starts with YOU, was facilitated by eNuus anchor on Kyknet, Freek Robinson. Sharing their expert views on the topic included panelists’ Mr Tebogo Motlashuping, Chief Director of Corporate Governance and Traditional Affairs and Professor Steven Friedman, a South African academic, newspaper columnist, former trade unionist and journalist.
 
The two-hour event knocked off with the panelists sharing their thoughts on accountability in South Africa and the current state of affairs that center around it. This encompassed pertinent discussions on the fact that a quarter of the GDP in South Africa was found to be maladministrated and/or in corruption, with a staggering R34 billion that was mal-spent by municipalities.
