The ADESSA AGM took place on 7 April 2016 in Cape Town. The event was hosted by one of the members, Oxford University Press.
The turnout was the biggest ever experienced at an AGM meeting and the attendees were glued to their seats as Mr Brian Schreuder, DDG of the Western Cape Education Department explained the meaning and implications of the “Game Changer” policy of the province.
Two new members were elected to join the ADESSA committee and we welcome Vivian Naidoo of MIB and Craig of Fuelonline to the committee.
