The president’s address

The president welcomed members to the Institute’s AGM, being held virtually for the third time. She thanked Lumi for their outstanding service and for hosting this virtual meeting, allowing maximum participation by members across Southern Africa.

She noted that ESG was emerging as a significant issue to companies, and members were encouraged to familiarise themselves with the changes, knowing that the Institute would assist through publications, ongoing training sessions and webinars presented by industry experts.

She added that significant developments on the ESG front included the publication of prototype standards by the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB), covering the general requirements for sustainability disclosures and climate-specific risks and opportunities, with a global baseline of sustainability standards anticipated by the end of 2022, and IFRS standard settings to follow. The JSE has published its Sustainability Disclosure Guidance, and the Securities and Exchange Commission (USA) has announced the first fine for an alleged ESG disclosure failure.

She thanked the CEO, Stephen Sadie and his team, who have navigated challenging times successfully, with the support of the board.

The CEO’s address

Stephen Sadie presented an update on the Institute’s activities of 2021. He used the analogy of a house being hit by a storm in 2020 which caused considerable damage to the roof tiles and windows. Through the course of his presentation, he showed how the roof was repaired and the renovations undertaken on the house to make a major recovery in 2021. He indicated that the house had strong foundations which were built over the past 110 years. The year ended with a R4.2 million surplus indicating a major recovery from 2021.

Sadie used the integrated reporting framework of the 5 capitals as the structure of the presentation. Under each capital, he illustrated the major gains and challenges of 2021.

The president’s address

Welcome to all members and members of the board. This is our second AGM held by way of an electronic platform due to Covid. We recognise the loss of friends and family due to the pandemic, which has presented a challenging year for everyone – on a global basis. CGISA has not been immune to the impact of Covid and I would like to give thanks to Stephen Sadie, Jenny Maybery, Sandy Van Niekerk, Sabrina Paxton and all the wonderful staff who have dedicated – and continue to dedicate - considerable effort to ensuring that CGISA rises above these challenges. This was also the year that our much beloved Baldwin Masethla retired after more than 50 years of service and we wish him the very best going forward. We also thank our long standing board members Sikkie Kajee, Robert Likhang, Chris Wilson and Karyn Southgate, who will be retiring after this meeting, having served on the board for the past nine years. We welcome our new members, staff and board members to our family and look forward to a prosperous year ahead.
