he issue of transformation has long been a hot topic in our industry. What is unquestionable is that we’re all committed to a transformed economy. What is often less clear is how to go about achieving it. It sometimes seems like such a big task that it leaves us reeling. But if we go about it one small project at a time, it really is achievable.

As an example, the IISA and SAIA have launched an initiative to get more black brokers to the 2019 African Insurance Exchange at Sun City in July. Between the two organisations they have agreed to cover the costs of sending three black brokers to the event in order to provide them with all the opportunities that come with attending a conference of this status and magnitude. In addition, the FIA has invited members to support and will use pre-determined, transparent criteria to choose the brokers who will benefit.

The organisations have extended an invitation to the industry to participate in the scheme and help get even more black brokers to attend. Santam has already responded favourably.

The total cost for one delegate to attend for the full three days is R25 000 and there has already been a fair amount of support from the broker community.

If you are interested in finding out more, or if you would like to sponsor a deserving black broker to attend the conference, contact lerato@iisa.co.za. Your sponsorship will have an impact on your BEE rating.

Enjoy the great outdoors

One of the big attractions at the annual African Insurance Exchange has always been the golf. Sun City has a couple of world class courses and delegates flock to take advantage of the opportunity to play here. This year is no different! Interest levels have been very high and, by all accounts, we look set for a full field in July.

If you have made a provisional golf booking, please click here to confirm your spot. There are still a limited number of spaces available, which will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. Click here if you would like to be considered. We will confirm shortly.

Further communication will be sent out soon to all golfers who have confirmed their registration.

There will also be additional outdoor activities for non-golfers on the Sunday of the African Insurance Exchange. We are still busy dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s, but will let you know soonest what these activities are. What we promise is that they are fun and offer great opportunities to network.
