2019 FSACCI Annual General Assembly

On Thursday June 13, the French South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FSACCI) organised its Annual General Assembly (AGM).

On Thursday June 13, the French South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FSACCI) organised its Annual General Assembly (AGM), at ENSAfrica in Sandton.

It was a time to come back to the past year and celebrate our strong network.

A new MOI

During this evening, which gathered around 60 of our Members (and 80 rights of vote), the Chairman of the Chamber, Dr. Yves Guénon, introduced our new Memorandum of Incorporation (MOI), which was then approved by the Members through a vote. The new MOI can be summarized with three words: Governance, Ethic and Strenght.

  • It ensures a more efficient governance through a stream-lined Board of Directors (between 10 and 15), an increased engagement and accountability (2 endorsements to become a Director) and more renewal and stability (1/3 of board members renewed each year)
  • It elevates compliance and exemplary governance, as it meets the requirements of the Compagnies Act of 2008, it instaures a no conflict of interest rule for Directors, and reminds that Directors are community centered and do not receive any financial compensation.
