I trust that the foregoing has given you an overview of the SACPCMP Council members. Registered persons in particular are requested to support Council in its commitment to fulfilling its statutory mandates while maintaining cordial relationships with current and potential voluntary associations. Prompt and full payment of annual registration fees is key to the effective operation of Council. Council is now implementing within its mandate a policy of strict cut-off time for de-registration of erstwhile registered persons who are not in good standing with the Council.
Registered persons and other stakeholders should expect dedicated and exceptional services from committed and competent office administrators and Council members especially through their involvement in the work of council committees.
We appreciate your feedback on our services as we strive to excel in meeting the needs of our stakeholders including protecting the general public in the delivery of project and construction management services.
