SAIMC: Secunda branch

January 2013 SAIMC

Three of the founding members of the Secunda branch ended their service on the committee at the end of 2012. They are Peter Zietsman, Brian Edwards and Dennis Hoffman, who have collectively served on the committee for a total of 32 years. The branch would like to thank them for their loyal support throughout the years.

The committee would also like to thank all the members, supporters and hosts that were involved with the branch during 2012. Without your involvement none of our achievements would have been possible. The annual general meeting (AGM) for 2013 will be held on 17 January at the WIKA offices in Trichardt and the 1st Technology Evening is planned for 7 February. The current thinking around the Technology Evenings for 2013 is to focus on valves. At each meeting, a different element of a valve will be discussed. The branch invites all members to attend the AGM and support the new committee for 2013.
