Outgoing Commercii committee passes on the baton to new leadership
20 September 2016

The Economic and Management Sciences Faculty House Commercii welcomed its incoming Executive Committee (EC) on 16 September 2016. The inauguration ceremony was symbolic of the passing on of the baton from the previous EC, overseen by the Dean of the Faculty, Prof Elsabé Loots, who commended all the students for their active involvement in the Faculty House.

Commercii is a society that caters for the needs of BCom students and enriches their student life experience while at the University. Its focus areas include assisting students with academic development skills and involving them in community outreach work.

Some of the notable successes of the outgoing EC are outreach initiatives that have benefited Pure Hope Kids, an educational institution for underprivileged children, and the Angels Without Wings non-profit organisation, which assists families of children with terminal and life-altering conditions. The outgoing committee wished the new incumbents well and encouraged them to work as a team to achieve their goals.

“We are looking forward to a year of excellence,” said the new Chairperson, Mr Refentse Mompei, who thanked the outgoing committee for their support and conveyed the new EC’s enthusiasm to tackle the challenges that lie ahead.

The new EC will be supported by the Faculty through their appointed guardian, Dr Ingrid le Roux, who recently received the award for the ‘Best Guardian of a Faculty House’ at the annual Faculty and Day House Awards Function. She thanked the outgoing committee for their service during their tenure and stated that she looks forward to working with the new EC to build on the positives of the previous year and take Commercii to new heights.
