Antonina Guarrella (ICA Project and Event Administrator) and I will be travelling to Cape Town today to visit the venue for our Global Conference and General Assembly at the Cape Town International Convention Centre which takes place from 1 – 5 November. We’ll also be meeting with officials from the South African Government who are funding partners for the event and linking up with Dr Chiyoge Sifa, ICA Africa Regional Director.
This is an exciting prospect – not only because this will be the first General Assembly to be held in Africa in our 118 year history, but also because we will be launching the new global visual identity for the co-operative brand. This is a great honour!
Over the next few days I’ll keep you posted on our talks.
