SAIV Events

What our members have to say:

Thank you SAIV for excellent, very informative webinars.  This is the future of continuous education and training.  Much better than the conventional seminars, where all info of various speakers are all cramped in, in one or two days.

A most informative session. I enjoy the differing viewpoints and questions posed. I think these webinars are important esp. in these unprecedented times and they are a good way to  share knowledge  within the industry.

Well done to the team, maybe webinars are the way forward , except for the country seminar.

Keep on keeping the valuation profession abreast of market developments in the various property sectors.

Historic moment for SAIV as it elects first black President

23 April 2021 It was yet another historic moment for the South African Institute of Valuers (SAIV) when it elected its first black president at the 2021 National AGM and Seminar held on Thursday, 22 April at the Royal Pearls Hotel in Umhlanga, KwaZulu-Natal. Malusi Mthuli, former vice-president of the Institute and Chair of its Northern Branch will work with the branches across the country to steer the 111-year-old organization towards a path of further growth and influence in the South African built environment industry.

Handing over the presidential chain, immediate past president, Tracey Myers congratulated Mthuli and made known her belief that he will be a great asset as president. “I welcome Malusi in his new position and I believe he is going to do a great job, and I ask you all to give him your support just like you gave me”, she stated in front of delegates who made the trip to the coastal province. Myers was the first female Fellow president of the SAIV, a position she held since her election in 2018 at an AGM held in Boksburg, Gauteng. Mthuli will work with his recently elected vice-president, Natalie Ginsberg who is also Chair of the SAIV Southern Branch.

In his acceptance speech, Mthuli stated his eagerness and desire for working with members of the Institute in order to implement what has already been put in place. He also reiterated that he cherishes this great responsibility entrusted to him during this historic moment. “It is obviously a historic moment which all of you are part and parcel of, however, the relevance of this historic moment is only as good as the events that follow it. It is all good and well to see someone like myself up here being given such a responsibility, however, if we are unable to deliver on the expectations of this organization then this historic moment obviously means nothing,” stated Mthuli in his address to delegates.

Mthuli is a property valuer at heart and has developed interests in education, technology and transformation throughout the past decade as a professional. He is currently the Head of Valuations for First National Bank (FNB) Business Commercial Property Finance and has previously held similar roles at Investec in Johannesburg and Eastern Cape regions. His career as a valuer within the banking sector started in 2005 and he has also worked for Nedbank amongst other institutions. Mthuli has been a member of SAIV for over 15 years.

WATCH: Engineering a solution to slow infrastructure rollout

Infrastructure remains the centrepiece of the Reconstruction and Recovery plan, which promises to enable a significant expansion in the delivery of public infrastructure, creating jobs, unlocking investment and boosting aggregate demand. But research firm Intellidex points out that there remain serious chicken/egg problems around required PFMA/MFMA/PPP regulatory changes to meaningfully unlock infrastructure rollout. Ahead of the State of the Nation address Michael Avery hosts Sugen Pillay, President of the Consulting Engineers South Africa (CESA); Tracey Myers, President of the South African Institute of Valuers (SAIV); and Vishaal Lutchman, CEO of the South African Institution of Civil engineers (SAICE); for a roundtable on what they would like the President to focus on to unblock the constipated infrastructure pipeline.

The future of the Property Valuation Profession in South Africa towards 2040

The property valuation profession is ageing whilst the scope and demand for its work is ever increasing. The current Covid-19 crisis has amplified the need of valuation services given the uncertainty in the property market going forward. However, the sustainability and longevity of the profession remains in balance and various challenges threaten the very existence of the South African Valuer in the future. A fellow Valuer has taken upon himself to undertake a research study for academic purposes and to address some of the current and future challenges. This study seeks to take a diagnostic approach and forecast the future of the profession. Very limited research is focussed on the sustainability of the valuation profession in South Africa, especially on the backdrop of the 4th Industrial Revolution, and this study seeks to correct this. You are invited to participate in this historic study that will help chart the way forward for you and future Valuers. Are you designated as a Professional Associated Valuer or Professional Valuer? If so, your perspective is needed in a short interview that will be carried out by an independent professional researcher.

Please click here to fill out your contact details and someone will be in touch with you to arrange an interview, via Zoom or MS Teams, at a time that is convenient to you.
