Chris Hobson, incoming ITC-SA Chairman said: “My vision for the ITC-SA is to transform and grow our membership to include all role players in the timber construction industry by creating a ‘need to belong’ through initiatives that promote members’ commercial interests,” concluding “In so doing, we aim to make the ITC-SA a focal touch point for the industry with an authoritative voice that has the agency to influence policy and legislation in support of a prosperous future for the South African timber construction industry.”
