Dear Members

Re:  Membership Renewal

Thank you to all the members who participated in the WOESA/ ENABLIS Training Programme. We have renewed our Memorandum of Understanding with the Department of Energy for the year 2014/2015, through which we seek to improve the nature of support to our members. We also have an agreement with Shanduka Black Umbrellas for greater capacity building and opportunities for participation in Enterprise Development as well as Supplier Development Programmes in various corporates.

To that effect we need to update our data base and to determine if your company will be actively involved in the planned activities, and also to match your company to the opportunities for the current year. Please indicate interest by payment of R300 for membership renewal.

The account details are as follows:

Account Name: WOESA (Women in Oil and Energy SA)
Bank: Nedbank
Branch Name: Business Pretoria
Account Number: 149 712 872 2
