Message from the Chairman of the WPC Committee 2016

17 May 2016 4:15 PM | Anonymous

To all Regional Chairman, The Committee and loyal members of IOPSA


May I begin by introducing myself.  My name is Lee Goldie and since 1987 have operated Drips plumbing in Cape Town.  Drips Plumbing is also a founder member of The Institute of Plumbing in S.A. (1988).

Our Institute is a member of the World Plumbing Council (WPC) and importantly shares close ties with the World Health Organization (WHO).

South Africa has been offered and accepted the honour of hosting a World Plumbing Council Conference in Cape Town in September 2016.

Every 3 years this conference is held in major cities around the world attracting the most important and smartest people in our industry. Through workshops and interaction the delegates can pick and choose what is important to their business interests and ultimately to the benefit of your business.

I have been to 5 conferences over 16 years and have built the foundations of my business on what I bring back from conference.  In addition to those benefits, I have made lifelong friends and forged alliances with like-minded individuals to share information and inspiration for the craft we practise.

It is for these reasons that I justify the delegate fees (not to mention flights and accommodation!) and the 2 days or more I spend away from my business.

Having the conference in South Africa is a fantastic opportunity to experience WPC.  IOPSA has put together a world class event, partnering with IMD events to deliver an unforgettable experience.  In addition to speakers and workshops there will be social events topped off by a Gala Dinner sponsored by Dawn Grohe Watertech.  As part of the conference there is an exhibition and skills simulation from the TVET colleges in Cape Town.  An international community plumbing challenge (CPC) will run simultaneously.

Cape Town has so much to offer our visitors, so come and enjoy the internationally recommended hospitality of this unique city. 

This is a personal invite to join in this prestigious event.  See you in Cape Town!
