Portfolio: Liaison, Professional Bodies (SANCOT, SAICE, SAIEG, ECSA)
Robert holds a BSc (Hons), Pr.Sci.Nat, MSANIRE, and MGSSA, and says about his portfolio: "The purpose of my portfolio is to maintain communication and good relationships with sister organisations and institutions. This involves identifying synergies between Sanire and the other organisations, and exchanging information about courses and conferences of interest to Sanire members and the other organisations.
"I will also assist with growth and development of the newly formed Surface Mining Branch. I will maintain contact with the SAICE (Geotechnical division) and the SAIEG. My goal is to encourage interaction and discussion between Sanire members and the members of other organisations with similar interests."
