Nicolette will be the third female President of the Southern Region. She was a former beneficiary of the Eden Trust (the predecessor to Thuthuka) and it is extremely pleasing to see that, as a beneficiary of SAICA’s transformation and growth programmes, she takes the position of President.

We wish her every success for her term.
