Last Updated Thursday, February 5, 2015 10:19:06 AM

Southern Region Trainee Committee

The SRTC is established to provide trainees with the opportunity to make an input into the SAICA decision-making structures related to training and to assist SAICA in discharging its duty of ensuring that persons, who qualify to be registered as Chartered Accountants in South Africa, possess the necessary levels of technical competence and professional characteristics.

SAICA is committed to facilitating the sustainability and growth of the CA (SA) profession and in doing so strives to:

  • Enhance its ability to influence local and inter Regional agendas;
  • Create positive brand recognition and improve the competitiveness of the CA(SA) profession;
  • Ensure compliance with regulation and good governance and to effectively manage and service the needs of our members;
  • Maintain the standards of the qualification through effective quality education and training models;
  • Create a liaison with the National Trainee Committee, the Accountancy Profession, the Trainee Accountant Society (TAS) and Training Requirements Committee (TRECO), a sub-committee of the Southern Region Council and trainee body of SAICA Southern Region.

Something about yourself:
I am passionate about social welfare initiatives and I feel that we can use our skills not only to benefit corporations, but rather to improve the lives of those less fortunate. There is a great divide between what people do for themselves and others and I hope that my career and position on this committee can narrow this gap. I aim to change people's mindsets about this career and what it can do for society.

Where in training contract:
2nd year

Something about yourself:
I believe that everybody has a voice – but not necessarily the 'power' to use it. That is how  I plan to use my role on the Southern Region Trainee Committee – to be voice to SAICA for those trainees who want to get more out their training contracts. I have a passion for education and empowering the youth and I believe the only to make a change in your environment is to GET INVOLVED. The Bookery Project combines these two passions.

Something about yourself:
I'm involved in a number of initiatives, all of them having a common goal, which is to ensure that our youth is literate. As Nelson Mandela put it, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world". I hope that my involvement with the SRTC as well as the other initiatives that I'm involved with will ensure that more youth are educated.
