VANDERBIJLPARK. – The second Annual Vaal Region SMME Conference took place at the Emerald Resort and Casino last week. It consisted of presentations and workshops, as well as exhibitions at which various SMME service providers were on hand to answer questions and inform delegates about their services.
The conference was the initiative of the Emerald Foundation and the Vaal Region Community Chest, supported by various role players, including Vaalweekblad and Ster as the local print-media sponsors.
Ms Veronica Cronj├⌐, director of The Vaal Region Community Chest, said this annual conference is about developing leaders in the economic sector who will become businessmen and women and who will, hopefully, grow their businesses, create jobs, generate wealth and, at the same time, be known for their integrity and commitment to the community at large.
“If we can get a circle of mentors in the business sector who are willing to help the next generation of small and medium enterprises grow and prosper, we would have helped people not only to help themselves, but helped others – and that is what Community Chest is all about,” said Ms Cronj├⌐.
