The MACE Free State Regional workshop was held on 5 July 2017 at the University of the Free State (UFS). It was attended by 10 delegates from the UFS and Motheo TVET College in Bloemfontein.
The workshop started with a presentation by Mamosa Makaya, Free State Regional Chairperson, focusing on the recent MACE activities that have taken place during the first half of the year. She presented key areas of discussion from the National Workshop and the Director’s
Symposium, pertaining to the challenges, successes, and trends in marketing, advancement, and communication at universities and TVETs.
Jandré Bakker led a presentation and discussion on the annual MACE awards competition, and took delegates through the key steps of presenting an award-winning entry. This included videos of frequently asked questions answered by Dr Amanda Hamilton-Atwell, Moderator of the MACE Awards programme. Jandré also presented samples of some of the winning entries from previous years, as well as the evaluation process.
The event was a great success which brought members together to motivate them for their next MACE award entries and to reinforce the regional presence and support.
