LOVING father, we are grateful for all that has come and gone, and we give thanks for new love, new harmony and new progress. Thank You for a successful National Conference and Annual General Meeting. Thank You for journey mercies back to our various homes and reuniting us with our family.
On behalf of the new Executive, I express our appreciation to the membership of this Institute for the confidence reposed in us to pilot the affairs of our noble profession for the next twelve (12) months. With the concurrence of the other members of the Executive, I wish to assure you of our best, we shall not disappoint. We are all aware that much is expected of us, of course, because dissatisfaction with the status quo is the dynamo of progress. We must continue to strive for excellence. To make progress we must will critically assess ourselves and accept that though the Institute has come a long way, we still have much to achieve. However, our collective success depends very much on our cooperation and practice of the TEAM Spirit. Surely, the TEAM culture, (Together Everybody Achieves More) will lift the Institute to unprecedented heights of progress. In this direction may I plead with all members to quickly put the elections behind them.
