The Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) is a statutory body, that in pursuing its goals has an implied responsibility to ensure that the interests of the profession (the practitioners) are also promoted. The interest of the public and the country can only be served properly if a profession is healthy and strong. For this reason ECSA promotes the well-being of the voluntary societies which are active in engineering. Since the societies are the instruments through which the interests of the practitioners are served, a good balance between “public interests” (ECSA) and “own interests” (Societies) should be maintained.
