“Evolution of Sectional Title – 3rd Generation”
More than two hundred Managing Agents and exhibitors from service industries met to listen, learn and share ideas in a prestigious event hosted by NAMA; a prominent player in the property industry. The organisation represents Community Schemes, Property Management Practitioners and service providers involved in the professional, fulltime administration of Sectional Title Schemes, Home Owners’ Associations, Share Block Schemes, Timesharing Schemes and Retirement Developments.
With 16 speakers; which included Professor Keang Sood, teacher of contract and property law at the National University of Singapore, and Leslie Leahy, a Dubai-based Australian who spoke about technology and how it will change the international strata, sectional title and HOA management space, the range of topics covered was comprehensive. National and local luminaries such as Community Scheme Ombud’s Board Member, Advocate Nomazotsho Memani-Balani, Professor Graham Paddock, Professor Cornie van der Merwe, Marina Constas and the Executive Manager: Enforcement of the EAAB Mr Jimmy Baloyi were also popular speakers on the packed programme.
Workshops on Preventative Maintenance, Legal Trends in Sectional Title, Managing Trusts and Banking Accounts & Good Reporting Governance; as well as a case study on Insurance Advice and Liability, added great South African value to the event. Some of the Cape Town contingent also excelled themselves in the pleasure stakes by partying until almost dawn by which time every available drop of the wonderful Molenvliet wine was consumed.
NAMA services the Sectional Title industry by educating Managing Agents, Trustees, Bodies Coprporate and owners about the law and the industry at functions held regularly in all the provinces, see www.namasa.co.za.
