The South African Diesel Fuel Injection Association (SADFIA) had a breakfast meeting on 29 November 2013 with RMI CEO Jakkie Olivier and RMI COO Jan Schoeman at the Fairway Hotel, Randpark Golf Club. The matters on the table included the progress made in respect of the RMI’s Project Renewal as well as challenges and opportunities for a smaller, specialised constituent association such as SADFIA as part of the larger RMI organisation. The breakfast formed part of the SADFIA NEC AGM that took place on 28 and 29 November 2013. The agenda items of the AGM included:
(1) the impact of the new B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice
(2) future Nuts and Bolts conferences
(3) the skills shortage in this sector of the repair industry, engagement of MERSETA and emphasis on the specialised training of the diesel fuel technician
(4) SADFIA member portal/website development and involvement of members and suppliers
(5) membership involvement at national and regional levels.
