The Institute for Timber Construction South Africa (ITC-SA) has reversed its resolution of dormancy following overwhelming feedback from the engineered timber construction industry on the critical role that the institute plays. An extra-ordinary board meeting was held on 16 October 2019 in order to collate this feedback and investigate a possible turnaround strategy.

After extensive deliberation, the current board resolved to continue until a workable and enforceable model, which will ensure the practical and effective regulation and promotion of the engineered timber construction industry, is developed. This model is to be presented to a special general meeting of its members, where a new board will be elected, which is to accurately reflect the membership and incorporate key role players in the engineered timber construction industry.
Discussions with key industry stakeholders are under way in order to pave the way for a practical, effective and sustainable way forward to ensure the continuation of the ITC-SA’s critical role in safeguarding the engineered timber construction industry in South Africa.
Regional branch meetings have been scheduled for Gauteng, Mpumalanga, Limpopo and KwaZulu-Natal in order to gather further insights and suggestions from the institute’s membership.
