The Driving Issue

Every business must answer the question, what drives your business? And it’s no different for SAICA.

In his column this month, Nazeer Wadee talks broadly about SAICA’s strategic imperatives and mentions quite proudly that the results of the latest MSI survey has risen to 84% in the first wave of 2010. He goes on to say that this is a key indication that we are on the right track. While we by no means can and will not become complacent, it’s encouraging to note that you, our most valued members find immense satisfaction in our services. And it’s this satisfaction that drives business at SAICA. To re-iforce this, herewith is a letter from a valued member of SAICA.


“Dear Sirs,

I have been a member of the Institute for very many years now, and I find it appropriate that I should send you this brief, but sincere note of gratitude.

I was on the Council of the Institute in Zimbabwe, and have, some years back now, had a fair amount to do with the SA Institute of Chartered Accountants on Corporate Law Reform issues. Accordingly, I have some knowledge of the amount of work done by the Institute for its members and the maintenance of the Institute’s name and the recognition in the international arena.

I place on record both my admiration for the work done and my gratitude for what the Institute has done for me for over 40 years.

Yours faithfully,

John Kennedy CA(SA)“
