Inaugural FFETA Function Eastern Cape
This year saw the first function for Eastern Cape members which follow on from the success of the KZN functions. As this is the first of what is hoped to be many, there was no theme but those that attended were hosted by the Chairperson of FFETA, Belinda van der Merwe, and were treated to a wonderful 3 course meal with drinks, at the Beach Hotel on the seafront in Port Elizabeth.
This was held the evening prior to the SAQCC Fire road show so there was much networking with the presenters and facilitators of the road show.
Members present each received a FFETA laptop bag, FFETA folder, and decals all bearing the old logo and this will be done in all the provinces for FFETA members that attend the functions as well as the SAQCC Fire road show until the stock has been used up so we can roll out the new logo. They also received the newest item to our list of a cooler bag which bears the new FFETA logo. There was one new member present from East Care Medical Services – and he was presented with his membership certificate.
Requests have already been made for next year from those that missed out, so it does appear this will become a regular event.
