Levels of Membership
Which option to choose:
Bronze membership is designed for companies or organisations operating in only one province of South Africa. It is envisaged that organisations such as small products and material suppliers, small contracting rms, small to medium consulting rms and small to medium Government organisations may seek this level. Bronze Membership is designed for those organisations seeking membership and participation and limited promotional activities.
Platinum, Gold and Silver membership levels have been designed principally for companies having operations in more than one province of South Africa and who would seek to obtain substantial promotional opportunities from their membership commitment. It is envisaged that large to medium sized companies in the industry would take out such membership, including Government Departments, NPC’s and similar organisations in industries related to the built environment sector. However, no organisation would be restricted in seeking such levels, regardless of nature or size.
