EAC euphoria grips delegates as the conference nears

File picture: Some delegates at the 2019 EAC

As the date for the Empowered Administrators Conference (EAC) draws closer, the interest in conference attendance is on the rise. There are now only 30 seats left and the EAC is all set to be oversubscribed.

Jade Mthiyane, MUT Events Coordinator, has been undertaking a series of campaigns and the positive responses have been humbling. She has promised delegates that this year’s programme will take them back to their offices “more equipped than ever. Now that we know how to work under extremely difficult conditions, we want to reassure delegates that this conference will prepare them for their next chapter,” said Mthiyane.

“After two years of EAC hiatus, I am so looking forward to my career renewal. I have looked at the programme and I am confident that there will be many takeaways out of this conference for myself and my employer”, said a delegate from Transnet.

From sister universities, one delegate who referred to the conference organisers as sweethearts, said, “I can only imagine the work that is going in this event. You guys have real class when you have this conference. Keep it up.”

The unprecedented events of the past two years have shown how office administrators are at the centre of making things happen and the EAC programme speaks to this theme.

“We want to ensure that office administrators keep the momentum and are better prepared to rise to whatever occupation that prevails to ensure effectiveness and efficiency in office administration,” said Mbali Mkhize, EAC Founder and Convener. “We are grateful that the work of the EAC speaks for itself. Our EAC alumni are the ones hard at work advocating for the EAC”, she added.
