2002/2003 has, I believe, been a great year for AMASA in Cape Town and thanks must go to you all for your fantastic support this year.
There have been many highlights for us in 2002/2003.
Firstly our two annual events were held again this year. Our media planning workshop was held in Stellenbosch in July and feedback from delegates and speakers was hugely positive. We are utilising the feedback given to us post this workshop, in order to put together an even better workshop in 2003. This year also saw members of the JHB and CT committees attending each others workshops. This will continue this year as it results in a beneficial cross-pollination of ideas.
More recently we held our second annual AMASA fundraiser which was a great success. It was held in perfect weather at the Camps Bay sports club. Thanks go to all of you that were involved. We were certainly impressed with the huge amount of effort and creativity that went into the fundraiser by the sponsors.
Our monthly meetings have continued to be well supported. Last year saw the likes of Ali Bacher, the Unilever Institute, Gordon Muller, Mike Bosman, Ross Chowles amongst others, inspire us with what they had to say. We hope to maintain and grow the attendance at meetings by ensuring that our speakers continue to be of the highest calibre. We also hope that the monthly meetings will continue to provide you with an unrivalled industry networking opportunity
I wish to use this opportunity of thanking the current AMASA committee for all the hard work and enthusiasm that has gone into making this year the success that it has been. Each and every member has been committed to growing and improving our offering and it has certainly paid off.
So, to end off, thank you all again. I look forward seeing what the new year will bring. I firmly believe that with your continued support, AMASA will be even more successful in the year to come.
