Fedhasa Inland appoints new board to drive 2.0 approach

FEDHASA Inland has appointed its new board at its AGM held recently in the Vaal.

Noting its role as the voice of hospitality in South Africa, current chairperson Rosemary Anderson update delegates on the organisation’s activities over the past year to keep members informed about legislative and government notices, as well as lobby government directly and in media to create an enabling environment for hospitality to flourish.

Among these were the recent ZEP Webinar and FAQ, the successful setting aside of the extension of Bargaining Council to non-parties and sharing of over 70 statutes and information concerning legislation affecting FEDHASA members.

“We will be building a new resource-based website which will be a rich platform for members to source templates, resources and collaborate virtually with their industry peers through interactive forums. We will also reengage in person through in-person networking and engagements – we are a social industry after all,” said Anderson.

Lastly, the organisation has set its sights on establishing an even more attractive basket of benefits such that the savings achieved through these outweigh the fees members pay to be part of FEDHASA. An attractive deal for hospitality businesses with a third party was currently being finalised and details would be announced soon, she added.

The FEDHASA Inland members elected their board.

Rosemary Anderson has been Chairperson and Gustav Pieterse as Vice-Chairperson. Committees will be appointed at the next Inland board meeting.
