The African National Congress in the North West is ready to host the much anticipated Provincial Conference in June. Addressing the media today – Sunday 21 March 2021, ANC North West IPC Coordinator, Hlomani Chauke said it’s all systems go. Chauke said the ANC Interim Provincial Committee (IPC) in the North West Province was appointed by the National Executive Committee (NEC) to lead the organization in line with the provision of the Constitution of the ANC as adopted and amended by the 54th National Conference.
Hlomani said the IPC registered different levels of success in the focus areas largely due to the interruption of the Covid 19 pandemic.
“We are however satisfied that we were able to lead the organization in this Province through such a serious pandemic and are ready to start the processes towards the Provincial Conference. Our recent IPC meeting adopted a revised Roadmap towards the ANC North West Provincial Conference. The Roadmap outlines key tasks and activities to be executed as
part of the preparations for the Provincial Conference,” said Hlomani.
The tasks includes the appointment of Interim Branch Committees (IBC’s), political support to Interim Regional Committees (IRC’s), full implementation of the New Online Membership system, training of Branches on new systems and Guidelines for Conferences, appointment of Scanning Agents for purposes of implementing the
Electronic Evidence of Attendance System (EAS) at all Branch meetings, convening of preparatory Branch General Meetings (BGM’s), arranging for elective Biennial Branch General Meetings (BBGM)/ Branch Conferences, Induction of Branches and
implementation of Branch Program of Actions.
“In the last four days we conducted Regional Briefing sessions with all our IRC’s on Conference preparations and our Regions are now finalizing Roadmaps towards their Regional Conferences. These Regional Roadmaps will give an indication on the possible
dates for respective Regional Conferences. Over this long weekend (20th – 22nd March 2021), we are convening meetings with
representatives from all our Interim Branch Committee (IBC’s). Yesterday Saturday 20th March until today 21st March, we are meeting our IBC’s in Dr Kenneth Kaunda and Dr Ruth
Mompati Regions whilst Bojanala is planned for today 21st March until Monday 22nd March,” said Hlomani.
