President's Note - July 2018
AFETT President 2018/2019
Mahatma Gandhi famously said that the best way to find oneself is to lose yourself in the service of others …this term of office for me is not a journey of self-discovery, but one of selfless service. As the newly installed Board gets set to continue the programmes of this remarkable organisation, allow me to commit to you that we will do this with passion and vigour.
The professional expertise of the members of the Board span the areas marketing, engineering, project management, training and development, law, communications, human resources, beauty, motivational speaking, media relations, entrepreneurship, event management, government relations and protocol. With this diverse mix of experience being brought to bear on the year’s programme of activities, you, the members, will undoubtedly benefit.
Join us on Thursday 19th July from 5:30 pm for our ‘Mix and Mingle’, when we share with you details of our plans - most of which is reflective of the feedback we got from our membership, both at the Annual General Meeting and through the direct messages I received from many of you.
We plan to approach everything we do with you in mind.
I promise a year of fun and excitement while addressing the critical issues affecting women and young girls, and aggressively pursue both our advocacy and mentorship programmes.
Again, I say thank you for the trust you have placed in us.
Yours in service,
