IOPSA – Quo Vadis?
The institute is no different to most voluntary bodies in this day and age where the question may well be Quo Vadis – whither goest thou or modern parlance where are you going?

We thank all who responded to the reader survey that was conducted between March and July this year. The reader results are very helpful in guiding us as to editorial policy and direction. We would have loved to give everyone a prize but sadly there can be only one winner.
Congratulations to Carmen Schoultz of Bennet Plumbers in Port Elizabeth, who walks away with the Hisense flatscreen TV as prize!

Either way, you will find reviews of both these events in Plumbing Africa’s October edition 2014.
Continuing with our duty of informing and educating the industry, we have a look at an education and training programme in water and sanitation, and housing and habitation that is being implemented in India. Read more
