YOUR IIG CELEBRATES
As South Africa enjoyed peaceful elections, a strengthening Rand and 10 Olympic medals, there’s one more amazing achievement to celebrate – Your IIG’s 105th birthday!
Established in downtown Johannesburg on the 27th August 1911, the Insurance Institute of Gauteng has endured two world wars, changes of governments and numerous ongoing industry regulatory amendments, to name a few ... and through it all has gone from strength to strength.
The IIG’s 7th female president Tracy McLaughlin and the council have once again created world-class educational and social events in line with this year’s presidential theme: ‘Honouring our heritage, while challenging the future’.
But then again, the IIG owes its success to our loyal members. With corporate member subscription fees and the generosity of event sponsors, your IIG has raised in excess of R4 million for worthy charities over the past decade and also hosts Africa’s largest insurance networking event, the IIG Annual Dinner for a record-breaking 1 800 guests.
In celebration of our 105 years of success, the IIG thanks our friends from the IISA, IING, IIER, IIFS, IIB, IICoGH, IIKZN, IIBotswana and this month’s Informer sponsor Hollard for their good wishes and contribution in this very special golden issue of the IIG Informer.
