South Coast Region, General Meeting

Master Builders KwaZulu-Natal South Coast Region, held their 2nd General Meeting for the year at the Port Shepstone Country Club on 27 August 2009. The event was well attended, with 65 members braving the miserable weather.

The meeting was chaired by Ray Basson who spoke about the Master Builders Community Project in Gamalakhe. The project is a joint venture between the Association, Association Members, Local Government and George Enslin and involves the construction of a house for two young boys whose parents passed away two years ago. For more information about the project visit the Master Builders Website.

Ray also announced that the South Coast year end function is scheduled for the 20th November 2009 promising to be something different.

Michael Bertrums CEO of KwaZulu-Natal South Coast Tourism then gave an excellent presentation on methods to promote and market the region to both the national and international market. It was especially interesting to see the future impact that this will have on development and infrastructure. Michael’s presentation was warmly received.

The meeting was generously sponsored by Nu Form. Mark Bolton (CEO) presented a short DVD on his company and the community projects in which they were involved. It was acknowledged that sponsorship from the likes of Nu Form was an integral part in the success of these events.

The final presentation was by the Associations Commercial Manager and focused on the new corporate identity and expanded member service offering. Gary Amstutz our Commercial Manager as always presented it with great enthusiasm. Once the meeting had drawn to a close, dinner was served with members enjoying the occasion to network amongst each other.
