View the highlights from the President’s Inaugural address
It is a great honour for me taking up the role of SIOPSA president – to be given the opportunity to make a lasting contribution at this level is both humbling and energising, particularly considering the opportunities and challenges ahead. On behalf of all our members, I would like to thank Alison Lodewyk-Felix for the tremendous job she has done in leading our society for the past year and to thank all the executive committee board members for their service. Together, they have taken our society to a new level of involvement and responsibility toward serving its members and striving to create conditions in which IO psychologists will be able to deliver efficient and effective services to the benefit of all in South Africa. Thank you to our office staff at SIOPSA for the energy, professionalism and fun that you bring to the task of supporting our members. To our SIOPSA volunteers, thank you for spending your precious personal time in building the society and our profession. And thank you to you – our members – for your contribution to build and engage in our valued profession. I look forward to serve and strive, together with the 2019/2020 SIOPSA team, to create conditions that deliver efficient and effective services to the benefit of all our SIOPSA members and the South African society at large.
