The Johannesburg Branch visit took place on 7 February 2019 at SAICE National Office in Midrand. Branch members attended the event to listen to Mr Brian Downie, SAICE 2019 President, deliver his presidential address entitled It’s a New World. The most salient theme in his presidential address is to uplift and assist young people in South Africa in order to prepare them for the ever-changing world. His presidential address left many of the members in attendance inspired and enthusiastic to assist Mr Downie throughout his presidency. SAICE Acting CEO Steven Kaplan presented an overview of the year 2018 as well as the plans SAICE has for 2019, and ways in which members could get involved. Mr Downie will be visiting branches across South Africa during his presidency and SAICE encourages all members to be a part of his inspirational journey.
