All roads lead to Mbombela, home to the Big Five, where Army Support Formation Command Cadre Conference (CCC) took place from 20 August 2017 and finished on 25 August 2017.

The conference chaired by General Officer Commanding Major General L.C. Nobanda provided a platform for the SA Army Support Formation staff to strategies and iron out issues critical to the successful execution of its mandate, which is to render an efficient and economically viable sustenance system to all SA National Defence Force landward forces.

Officer Commanding Army Support Base (ASB) Mpumalanga Lieutenant Colonel G.C.F. van Heerden welcomed the team “Team Significant” at Bundu Inn Lodge, Mpumalanga.

The Conference started on Monday morning at 07:30. Robustly, as you can imagine the General Officer Commanding ASB officially opened the conference and with no delays a strategic direction on how to approach the formation’s task, which is to provide first, second and fourth line support to the SA Army was revisited. The team addressed challenges that hinder the smooth sailing of this “ship”.

The conference attended by the General Officers Commanding (GOC), Officers Commanding and SA Army Support Formation ( ASF) Head Quarter’s Command Group, was to ensure that this” ship” will not sink and it is steered in the right direction.

The conference ended with a hand over ceremony by GOC ASF handing over the symbol of the Command Cadre Conference (CCC) to the unit that will host the next conference.
