It is that time again when the SACPCMP puts the final touches on the preparations towards the 2nd Project and Construction Management Professions Conference which will take place on the 20 - 22 October 2014 at the Gallagher Estate in Midrand.
This conference has been endorsed by the Honourable Minister of Public Works, Mr T.W. Nxesi, and will be addressed by leading local and international thought leaders in both the public and private sector. It is aimed at creating collaborative and working relationships for infrastructure development and is an ideal platform to network.
The theme of the conference is “Growth, Development and Transformation of the Project and Construction Management Professions” The theme of the conference addresses the government’s priorities in relation to infrastructure roll-out as a tool to leverage regional economic integration and development - and to drive job creation, skills development and empowerment, without sacrificing delivery of world class infrastructure on time, within budget and to an acceptable quality.
This is one event that you cannot afford to miss. Book your seat today to be part of this programme by registering at www.sacpcmp.org.za.
This is also in line with the vision and priorities outlined in the Minister of Public Works’ Budget Vote Speech that commits to the building of a “partnership with DPW entities, the charter councils and relevant stakeholders” for a renewed and sustained programme of action to transform the construction and property sectors “as part of the second and more radical phase of transition to democracy”.
Through strategic interventions and partnerships we intend to advance growth, development and transformation of the Project and Construction Management Professions.
The envisaged outcomes of the Conference are to: * Expose industry players and potential new entrants to government opportunities for infrastructure development; * Facilitate knowledge management and skills transfer in the sector; * Contribute to the improvement of standards and benefits to registered persons; * Create a platform for government to engage industry on key infrastructure projects and PPPs in the SADC region and the continent as a whole; * Create a platform for all stakeholders to discuss ways and means to roll out a seamless mentorship programme in support of new entrants to the industry; * Agree on a minimum programme that would unlock real opportunities for professionals in the delivery of world class infrastructure projects.
