The Annual Debt Counsellors Association of South Africa Conference is being held today in Gauteng. DCASA is the oldest Debt Counsellors Association and currently has the most Debt Counsellor members of all the associations. Each year DCASA members from across the country get together to get updates and information on what DCASA have been up to and what to expect from the coming year.
The conference is held each year at Emperor’s Palace, near the airport in Gauteng and runs from 8:30 – 3pm. Members can attend for free (as a membership perk) and non-members are asked to pay a fee to attend. Those flying in from other parts of the country are able to make use of the free shuttle service to and from the venue from OR Tambo Airport.
Wondering what’s on the agenda for today? Here is a look at the various speakers and activities including speakers from Hyphen PDA and the National Credit Regulator. A regular speaker Economist Mr Mike Schussler will either amuse or horrify the audience and Mr Rob Rose of Financial Mail will also speak. Also added to the agenda pretty last minute will be an update on the new NCA amendments and what it means for Debt Counsellors.
