SAMRA Board 2015/2016 is elected!


The SAMRA Annual General Meeting (AGM) took place on 6 August 2015 in Johannesburg. Here are the highlights:
THE NEW SAMRA BOARD WAS ELECTED We said goodbye to two of the SAMRA Board members at the AGM.
 Salome Barnard After many years of making a significant contribution to SAMRA, Salome Barnard, having completed her current SAMRA Board term representing large research users, resigned at the AGM. Salome served on the SAMRA Council, also as chairman in 2009/2010, and more recently the SAMRA Board, with a sincere passion for the improvement of quality in research. The SAMRA leadership will miss her, and we wish her well on her new journey!
Mamapudi Nkgadima, who was the Incoming Chair, also resigned. Although Mamapudi did not serve her full term on the SAMRA Board, she has made a significant contribution to SAMRA and the industry, and we are grateful that we were graced with her presence on the SAMRA Board for the last year.  Mamapudi Nkgadima

The SAMRA Board for 2015/2016 is as follows:

Large Research Suppliers: Alexan Carrilho (Ipsos); Medium Research Suppliers: Vacant; Small Research Suppliers: Shaun Naidoo (Answered); Large Research Users: Sheila Akinnusi (Nedbank); Small Research Users: Ineke Prinsloo (Zurich Insurance Company South Africa); Academia: Elsa Thirion-Venter (MarkData); Ex officio Director: Leonie Vorster (SAMRA Chief Executive Officer)
The AGM recommended that Ineke Prinsloo continue for a second year as chairman, given that the Incoming Chair had resigned. The SAMRA Chairman and Incoming Chair will be elected at the first SAMRA Board meeting.
THE SAMRA MEMORANDUM OF INCORPORATION AND THE COMPANY RULES WERE CHANGED a) to comply with the requirements of Section 30B of the Income Tax Act of 1962, as defined by SARS on 12 December 2014, and to ensure that SAMRA is administered in compliance of Section 30B; and b) so that, if a SAMRA Board seat becomes vacant between Annual General Meetings, the vacant seat can now be filled from another seat on the SAMRA Board.

SAMRA IS HEALTHY AND GROWING, AND WE HOPE THAT YOU WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT US AS WE GROW THE INDUSTRY, ENHANCE PROFESSIONALISM AND OFFER THE BEST STAKEHOLDER VALUE!
