The National Lotteries Board has announced that it will hold a 2 day national conference on 20-21 June 2011 at the Gallagher Estate in Midrand to explore the future of NLDTF funding. This is the first National Consultative Conference which will give participants an opportunity to share ideas with the Board.
Professor Nevhutanda, Chairperson of the National Lotteries Board said that the18 highly successful information workshops conducted by the Board in October/November 2010 in all 9 provinces resulted in many constructive issues being raised by participants. He added that in order to address these issues, the Board will initially hold provincial consultations to understand and document the concerns of beneficiaries and other stakeholders. The results of the provincial consultations will be discussed and recorded at the national conference.
Nevhutanda said that there will be ample opportunity for participants at the national conference to make input into the process to determine the most appropriate strategic and operational funding model for the NLDTF.
The Minister of Trade and Industry will officially open the conference. Further details regarding the invitation and registration process will be announced later.
