Each year, November is Awards month in the IITPSA calendar, and 2018 is no exception. What is really great this year, is that the Awards Programme includes two brand new awards – the Technology Excellence Award and the Social Responsibility / Community Award. Both of these awards allow for the recognition of teams, projects, or individuals who are innovating with technology, or innovating in the digital space and are making a difference to an organisation, a community or to the broader society.


As you will see from the 2018 Finalists’ line up for the two new awards (via https://www.iitpsa.org.za/annual-presidents-awards-2018/), there is a nice diversity of projects and initiatives that have sought to make a difference in the South African context. We wish all the Finalists every success with their ongoing endeavours, as they are all winners, regardless of who scoops the actual awards on the 27th November.


Moving on… despite the fact that we are nearing the end of the calendar year, the October / November 2018 newsletter is full of upcoming events and activities (including the 2018 President’s Awards Dinner) for our members and their communities of practice, so please do diarise them and RSVP as soon as possible to secure your place.


Until next time…
