It is unfortunate that we have to cancel the Gauteng workshop which was planned to take place this Saturday, 17 August 2019 in Pretoria.
The workshop, which was a platform for BSA to engage with Managers, Trainers, Seconds and Matchmakers as well as Boxers on matters of governance and other matters that impact them directly, was planned and communicated well in advance to allow for licensees to plan and schedule accordingly. Unfortunately the response has not been positive.
Gauteng has over 350 licensees in the above-mentioned categories and less than 20 confirmations of attendance were received with only two Managers, one Trainer and one Second included in the number and the balance made up by Boxers. This is the second attempt by BSA to give a platform for licensees to engage with BSA. In July 2018 only 19 licensees attended the workshop planned by BSA in conjunction with SAIDS.
BSA remains committed to engaging with licensees and on invitation by licensees to a structured platform, BSA will avail itself for a discussion and provide the necessary support.
We wish to thank all the licensees who had confirmed their attendance and apologise for any inconvenience caused by the cancellation.
