Our individual and corporate membership fees are affordable (Individual Membership Fee = R150.00 per Year; and Corporate Membership Fee = R5,500.00 per Year)

Membership Benefits: Our Corporate Members are guaranteed access to a pool of young talent, graduates and specialists like coaches, mentors, business advisors, consultants, project managers, facilitators, professional public speakers, and volunteers, whereas our Individual members are introduced to our corporate members and all other stakeholders, and exposed to continuous development programmes on a monthly basis like Development Summits – The LEKGOTLA Way, PMS LEKGOTLA Networks, Anniversary Celebrations, and Year End Functions, etc.

Access to youth talent pool

Our corporate members are guaranteed to have access to the well-groomed youth that forms part of the future talent pool.

Development projects identification

Our programmes and projects are spread all over the country, especially in the rural areas. Some of these areas are not easily accessible for most companies and organizations, and yet are designated priority areas for economic development by the Government. This means that they are the future growth markets. We are well positioned to take our corporate members to these regions and contribute jointly to their development.

Creation of employment brand

Our corporate members have the opportunity to partner with us and achieve the pre-emptive advantage in the communities we serve. When the youth identify with the company, they will want to work for that company when they join the world of work.

Creation brand positioning

The company is also able to use its association with us in promoting its brand. The members are already a captive audience for the corporate members.

Realization of Corporate Social Investment objectives

This is one of the elements of the scorecard in the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment. By contributing in the form of a corporate membership and supporting community development projects the company is able to add its contribution to the scorecard. Our corporate members who do not have the capacity to run their own CSI projects are welcome to finance some of our projects as their CSI interventions.

Leadership development for future needs

We concern ourselves with the future of individuals, organizations, communities, the country and the nations of the world. We are about leaving a lasting legacy for generations to come. By joining us the company is making its own contribution to the future of the world. We are proud to be a facilitator of this worthy course.

Cultural awareness

The nation that is not aware of its diverse cultures suffers many unnecessary tensions among its citizens. Unfortunately, this has become a matter that must also be dealt with at the workplace. Recruiting staff from our members brings benefits to our corporate members since our members are already culturally aware and respect other people’s cultures.

Positive legacy

We owe it to our future generations and should invest our resources in projects that will help in sustaining our country. Not all companies will be able to address this on their own. Over the past years, since 1st August 1997, Cometsa has developed insight into the areas that are vulnerable due to the actions of humankind, like environment pollution and contamination. We support the efforts aimed at restoring and preserving our environment. Our members are ready to assist in conceptualizing, developing, and implementing programmes to address these challenges. This will ensure that our corporate members leave a positive legacy for future generations.

Openness to continuous learning

Our corporate members support, believe and are committed to continuous learning. We are a learning organization and this rubs positively on our corporate members. 

Capacity building

Our organization is shouldering the responsibility for developing capacity among our individuals (members), communities, organizations and the country on a continuous basis.

Service excellence

We are thinking ahead in terms of future needs of the country and the citizens. As our country becomes a key player in the world and deals directly with the challenges of global competitiveness, we must commit to service excellence. This is the benefit that certainly justifies the yearly membership fees.

Ability to adapt to new environments

We help our members in adapting to new and changing environments that we expose them to.
