Finally, some good news!
As previously mentioned in our 31 August Report, our meetings with Mrs Mafu, the Chairperson of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee of Human Settlements resulted in the formation of the Multi Stakeholders Group (“MSG”).
Thanks to the leadership of Prof. Kwandiwe Kondlo, Chairperson of the EAAB and Dr Andrew Golding, Chairperson of REBOSA who were instructed by Mrs Mafu to formalise dialog between the EAAB and industry, MSG meets regularly and comprises representatives of most estate agency bodies and the EAAB.
See previous communique – Communique 1 – Establishment of Multi Stakeholder Group Final
Through these efforts rather significant amendments have been made to the CPD programme. Read the communique issued by the EAAB and the MSG, which is for your urgent perusal. Multi-Stakeholder Group Communication 2 (002)
REBOSA now has almost all national groupings as well as more than 500 estate agencies as members which members employ/are associated with more than 15 000 estate agents. We are the most representative entity in the real estate industry and have achieved much but still with a long way to go.
2016 will be known as the year of the Property Practitioners Bill.
We need more/all agencies to belong to REBOSA, now more than ever.
IF EVERY MEMBER COULD RECRUIT JUST ONE MEMBER IN 2016 REBOSA WILL HAVE ACHIEVED THE CRITICAL MASS REQUIRED. “TOGETHER WE CAN ACHIEVE WHAT INDIVIDUALLY WE CANNOT”.
My best wishes to you and your families for a safe, happy holiday season and a very prosperous New Year.
