Ballot Results | 2020/2022 Election of Directors for Board

3 Apr 2020 10:15 | Katsura Ogishima (Administrator)

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.
