Stakeholder Engagement Report 2019/20
During the past year, the governance of COEFS remained an important focal point with the appointment of a new chairman, Mr. Bert Chanetsa for a term of three-years, and the finalisation of the board charter. We welcomed new board members Ms. Karabo Morule, the former Managing Director of Old Mutual Personal Finance and Ms. Bongi Kunene, the incoming Managing Director of The Banking Association South Africa to the board. We also said goodbye to Mr. Leon Campher with his role at ASISA increasingly demanding more of his time to be committed to national initiatives to rebuild the economy.
Stakeholder Engagement Report 2020/21
The past year has been dominated by the impact of Covid-19 and as we gather for the 2021 AGM, we are in the middle of a third wave with a variant of the Covid-19 virus, that is more transmissible than ever before. Many lives have been lost and most families have been touched by the reality of the pandemic as family and friends became infected. Our condolences go out to those that have lost loved ones, and we hope that with the aggressive vaccination programme being rolled out for our country, we will achieve rapid population immunity. Reflecting on COEFS during this period, we took leave of Mr Leon Campher at our last AGM and welcomed Ms Bongi Kunene, the new managing director of BASA. The board remains a key success factor of COEFS and drives the research agenda.
