On Friday 16th August, The South African Institute of Security (SAIS) held its 35th Annual General Meeting at JP Morgan’s Illovo. In celebration of its 35th anniversary, the institute has instigated Dedicated Membership Awards and many of those present at the AGM were invited as guests of SAIS to collect their awards.
Among these were long standing members Ronnie Crawford Nutt for 35 years, Ken Catton and John Hill for 34 years and quite a number of other members, collecting awards for anything from 10 years upwards. Unfortunately, Rosemary, who took all the photographs of the presentations had her camera stolen the following day before the photos were downloaded.
Errol Peace, the outgoing chairman, welcomed all present and introduced Bruce Robertson, the institute’s incoming chairman and David Dodge, the new vice chairman.
On Saturday 17th August, the institute had its annual Black Tie Bash, the theme this year being ‘Fire and Ice’. This was again held at the Indaba Hotel in Fourways. Attendees were entertained by Francois Marais and ‘Fabio’ to a feast of fire, and Collin Henry provided the music for the evening.
Dedicated Service Awards were presented to many of the long-standing members of the institute, some of whom had travelled from far afield, as well as outgoing chairman Peace and long-time administration manager, Rosemary Cowan.
SAIS thanks all the sponsors, BTC Training for the entertainment, Temi Group for the tickets and IFSEC-South Africa for the red wine. Prizes were provided by Dinatla Solutions, John Elliott Security, Sibanye Gold and Technews (publisher of Hi-Tech Security Solutions).
