2017 SHECASA Conference

Dear SHECASA Member,


It gives me great pleasure to invite you to SHECASA’s 4TH Annual Conference, hosted by the Vaal University of Technology, at the Three Rivers Lodge in Vereeniging (Gauteng), on the 7th and 8th of September 2017.

The Three Rivers Lodge, in the heart of the upmarket suburb of Three Rivers in Vereeniging, is a unique sanctuary for the discerning traveller, doing business or for leisure and is situated a mere 45 minutes from OR Tambo International Airport. Since it was established, this guest lodge has become known as the jewel of the Vaal Triangle and promises guests an unforgettable experience in elegant and tranquil surroundings.   

The Executive Committee members, together with VUT’s PR Department, are working hard to ensure a WOW conference. We managed to put together a program with relevant topics that will be presented by experts in the field of Safety Health and Environment.

The event will be opened by VUT’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof Gordon Zide, where-after we can look forward to an inspirational keynote address by Dr Natalie Skeepers who is a seasoned Governance, Risk and Compliance Independent Consultant and motivational speaker. On Thursday evening, delegates will be treated to a boat cruise on the Vaal River followed by a delicious supper, some entertainment and the opportunity to network with colleagues from other tertiary institutions.     

The conference is less than 2 months away and I want to call on those members, who have not registered yet, to register ASAP as we can accommodate only a limited number of people. It will be appreciated if you can complete and return the registration form by latest the 8th of August 2017 so that we can provide the final figures to our hosts, in order for them to make the necessary provision.

The success of this conference will obviously be measured by the number of delegates attending, and I call upon you, as a member, to register. The support of each and every member is vital if we want to achieve our goals for the Association.

I am looking forward to see you on 7th and 8th of September 2017, in Vereeniging!


Please also extend this invitation to other colleagues within your institution that are in any way involved in SHE. (SHE Committee Chair, SHE Representatives, Health and Wellness staff...etc)


Kind Regards
