DCASA Conference 2019
The Debt Counsellors Association of South Africa (DCASA) is the largest body representing Debt Counsellors in South Africa. Each year members and others from around the country gather at Emperor’s Palace in Gauteng (near the Airport) for a day-long debt review industry conference. While those outside of the industry would probably die from instant boredom, those within the industry enjoy not only getting to meet and mingle but also hearing all about where the industry is headed. The event also gives members the opportunity to review what has been accomplished over the last 12 months.
This year a number of hot topics will be discussed including Debt Intervention and the PoPi Act (and how it impacts on Debt Review processes). Always of interest to members is how to ensure their practices are sustainable and profitable.
Guest Speakers include among others Economist Mike Schussler, Attorney Juan-Jacques Jordaan and Journalist Maya Fisher-French (of Maya on Money). A number of sponsors and exhibitors will be attending to mix with the guests such as representatives from Credit Providers and Payment Distribution Agencies (and software providers). Also attending and exhibiting will be Debtfree Magazine (guests will be able to collect free packs of print copies from the recent Special Print Edition). Our team will also be covering the event on social media.
If you were wondering what else is on the agenda for the day then you can get a quick glimpse below.
