It is that time of the year again where we look back to take stock and evaluate the progress made in our businesses and careers. 2020 and 2021 have been very challenging to many businesses and individuals but resilience has kept many going amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. As IBASA we kept the flame of Business support burning and looking forward to carrying the flame through to the year 2022 and beyond.
We have exciting programs lined up that are aimed at improving our service delivery to our members, stakeholder, and partners. We will be hosting regular trainings and workshops which will count towards CPD points and towards personal development and business growth. We have also landed a few Enterprise development projects that will create opportunities in mentoring and training for our members. We call upon members whose membership has expired, to renew their membership, and not miss out when we make calls for RFQs and proposals early in 2022.
In 2022 we plan to increase IBASA’s presence in various regions, by creating structures that will be assisted in developing partnerships with municipalities and government agencies. We will require our members, and those who will be joining IBASA, to participate in the programs that will be rolled out.
We are committed to continuing working with Government, Institutes of learning, Corporate and communities in enabling entrepreneurial excellence in all spheres.
To afford us the information needed to serve you best, we request that you participate in a short survey. Please complete the survey and submit it before the end of December, to enable the Board’s strategic planning meeting in January to be beneficial to you, our members. And here is a link to the Survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GY5ZGQS
The office will be closing on the 22nd of December and will reopen on the 12th of January 2022; however, we are emails away for any assistance you may require.
