The Companies Act 71 of 2008 requires of a public company and a state-owned company to appoint a company secretary with statutory duties as set out in section 88 of the said Act. Although not a statutory requirement for other organisations, any effective and efficient board requires the services of an experienced service provider to facilitate the functioning of the board by managing all aspects of meetings of the board and its committees. FluidRock has the necessary skilled resources to provide this service.
