As is the case with government elections, the SETA movement usually gets busy around the time restructuring and similar performance reviews / renewal proposals are due for consideration. Their standard party trick is to host a number of road shows and the like with appetizing appeals for constituants to attend. They then have all attendees sign the attendance register to demonstrate to their respective boards their level of active support around the country and the fact that they do engage directly with the fee-paying public. As we all know, that is usually the end of it until the next round of performance reviews. May I suggest that in future we all decline to sign the attendance register at any of these functions – at least until such time as the level of service becomes something one would be pleased to attest to.
