KEYNOTE ADDRESS TO SAPI PLANNING AFRICA 2016 GALA DINNER

I am honoured to have been invited by President Nthato Minyuku to deliver a Keynote Address at SAPI’s Gala Dinner to commemorate its 20th Anniversary.
There is a very significant, possibly unintended, symbolism in the theme of this year’s Planning Africa Conference and the event that we commemorate this evening: “Making Sense of the Future – Disruption and Reinvention” – but I will return to that a little later in my address.

20 Year Reflections

The South African Planning Institute (SAPI) was formed on 1 July 1996 through the amalgamation of the South African Institute of Town and Regional Planners (SAITRP) and the Development Planning Association of South Africa (DPASA).
This reflection of the 20 year journey taken by the leaders and members of SAPI is a tribute to the seless eorts made to build an independent and connected organisation.
