Amasa Joburg announces new committee for 2019/20
The Johannesburg chapter of Amasa (the Advertising Media Association of South Africa) has announced the committee that will be guiding the chapter's work over the course of the next year. Made up of prominent industry professionals, the committee will be responsible for fulfilling Amasa's core mandate, which is to promote the education and skills development of people working in the media, marketing and advertising, as well as of those who aspire to a career in this dynamic industry.
The members of the committee for 2019/20 are:
Outgoing Committee Chairperson Wayne Bishop, expressed his thanks to those who accepted nomination to serve on the committee and who have been voted into their new positions by AMASA members. At the AGM, Bishop also presented the past years successful initiatives and reflected on the last few years which saw the hugely successful AMASA Awards, the revitalised Media Planning Workshops, and Golf Days all contributing to funding bursaries for the “Gordon Patterson Amasa Learnership Programme” (ALP) students.
Parmeshan Moodliar of Hive Digital Media was voted and appointed as the new Committee Chairperson, with Memoria Masilela as Vice Chairperson. “As we welcome in the new committee, I would also like to take the opportunity to thank the outgoing committee for its passion, commitment, and hard work. Its members have made a tremendous contribution to realising AMASA’s vision; growing the organisation; improving educational and skills outcomes; and raising awareness of and support for the association’s work.” Said newly elected Chairperson Parmeshan Moodliar.
The incoming committee, he says, is made up of an excellent mix of agency, client and media owner professionals, including vibrant new blood that will bring fresh perspectives to the tasks in hand.
“The new committee aims to build on the successes of previous committees; maintain the incredible momentum in all of the association’s activities; grow the funding pool for the Gordon Patterson ALP bursary programme; and ensure that people who work in the industry or aspire to work in it have access to the very best education and skills training available. I wish the members every success for their term in office and know they will make it a memorable one,” says Moodliar.
