SAIMC: From the President’s desk
October 2018, SAIMC


We are nearing the end of the year at a rapid pace. Festive decorations are up in the supermarkets and we are preparing for the last weeks left in the year. During September, the SAIMC hosted the Automation Breakfast. It was a ground-breaking event and a tremendous success. Industry responded with vigour and it was an honour for us to see such a positive response. The hard work by the SAIMC training team led by COO Johan Maartens certainly paid off. Please keep an eye on the SAIMC website for the photos and a webinar link for those who missed it (or maybe want to see it again).

Congratulations team. You are working towards changing the future of our country and providing an opportunity for individuals to educate themselves in ways that will help South Africa be competitive in the global economy. Few people get an opportunity to contribute in this way in their lifetime. I feel proud to know that the SAIMC has individuals contributing in this way.

The First Challenge also launched its program for the year. As proud sponsors of this we enjoy seeing the youth develop and hope to see more students form part of this initiative and truly get an opportunity to enjoy robotics. The FIRST team is always looking for people who want to assist. So, if you are able to teach kids how to program, or work as a volunteer at an event or even mentor one of the teams, please contact us so that we can get you in touch with Jurie Weidemann and his team.

For those who are attending a SAIMC yearend function at one of our branches, please share a photo on Facebook. And if I am at the event, please come and say hi. I truly enjoy meeting the members of the SAIMC. We can take a selfie together (#meetingtheSAIMCpresident, #SAIMCyearendfunction, #SAIMCisawesome).

Enjoy the last few weeks of the year.

Yours in automation,

Annemarie van Coller.
