    Dear SACCJ Members,

    Thank you for your ongoing support of the Chamber, even – and especially – during these difficult times.

    I am pleased to report the results of the election for the SACCJ Board of Directors for the 1 April 2020 – 31 March 2022 term.

    We thank those of you who took the time to vote. 34 of 48 members with voting rights, or 71%, cast ballots in the election, exceeding the two-thirds quorum.

    These are the members of your new Board of Directors, in alphabetical order of family name:

    Ÿ   Francois de Villiers (Individual Member, re-elected)

    Ÿ   Nico de Wet (Individual Member, elected)

    Ÿ   Simon Farrell (Individual Member, re-elected)

    Ÿ   Francois Keet (Corporate Member, re-elected)

    Ÿ   Jaco Minnaar (Individual Member, re-elected)

    Ÿ   Lungile Siphambili (Individual Member, re-elected)

    *There were six candidates, which is fewer than the maximum of seven Directors stipulated in the SACCJ Articles of Association. All candidates received more “YES” than “NO” votes and were thus duly elected.

    The new Board of Directors will meet shortly to elect a Chair and two Vice Chairs, and to set the date for the 2020-2021 General Assembly, which is to be held before 31 May 2020. Please look out for upcoming announcements about this.

    Again, we thank you for your support. Please stay safe and stay well.

    SACCJ会員各位

     

    SACCJJMEC 共同プロジェクト へのご協力のお願い


    昨年のSACCJ総会において、今年開催される第26回JMEC (Japan Market Expansion Competition)SACCJがクライアント団体として参加することが、会員の皆様の多数決により決定いたしました。

     

    JMECは25年の歴史を持つ若手ビジネスパーソン向け研修プログラムです。各年度のJMECプログラムでは、参加者に企業や団体向けの具体的な事業計画を策定し提案させ、その内容のクオリティーをお互いに競わせることをプログラムの中心に据えております。具体的には、各年度のJMEC参加者は、先ず数名からなるチームに分けられます。そのうえで各チームはJMECからの事業計画の提案を希望する企業・団体(クライアント)に個別に割り当てられ、担当クライアントの要望に応じて具体的な事業計画の作成・提案を行うことになります。事業計画作成作業の開始に先立ち、各チームのメンバーに対しては、作業に必要なレクチャー、トレーニングや指導が各分野のビジネスのプロから数か月にわたって提供されます。

     

    今年度のJMECプログラムは既にスタートしており、SACCJに対してはチーム“Invictus”が割り当てられました。そしてチームInvictusに対しては、SACCJの会員向けサービスの強化、会員ベースの拡大および組織としての持続可能性向上に向けた3か年計画の作成を委託しました。

     

    チームInvictusはこの事業計画作成に向けた作業の一環として、2月19日ごろを目処にSACCJ全会員に対する調査を実施する予定です。つきましては、会員の皆様にはこの調査へのご協力をお願い申し上げます。チームが事業計画を完成させるに当たっては、会員各位のご意見・ご要望が大変に貴重な示唆につながると信じる次第です。

     

    この重要なプロジェクトに対する皆様のご協力に、感謝申し上げます。

    Dear SACCJ Members:

     

    SACCJ JMEC Project: Your Cooperation Requested

     

    At last year’s General Assembly, the SACCJ membership approved the Chamber becoming a client of the 26th JMEC (Japan Market Expansion Competition).

     

    JMEC is a 25-year-old business training program centered on a business plan writing competition. JMEC assigns a team to each of their clients, to create a business plan for them. The teams are trained, mentored and tested by professionals over several months to research and deliver their business plans. JMEC is supported by 18 foreign Chambers of Commerce in Japan including the SACCJ (please see the attachment for more information).


    The JMEC process has started, and JMEC has stood up a team, “Invictus”, for our project. The Invictus Team is tasked with coming up with a three-year business plan for the SACCJ that will give us direction to strengthen our services to current members, attract new members, and overall strengthen the Chamber and improve its sustainability.

     

    As part of this work, the Invictus Team will be deploying a survey to all of our Members from around 19 February 2020. I would like to ask for your cooperation in taking part in this survey. Your opinions and insights will be very important for the team to formulate their business plan.

     

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support of this important initiative.
