Stephanie Walker joins the Dolphin Coast Residents and Ratepayers Association (DOCRRA) as their newly appointed executive officer.
The enthusiastic retiree and willing volunteer, who likes to keep her mind busy at all times, will head up all of DOCRRA’s administrative and operational affairs.
“With many years of senior management experience and a resident and ratepayer of the Dolphin Coast, Stephanie – with the support of the DOCRRA committee – is set to support our members and manage the association,” said chairman Ken Lever.
Walker was previously in the information technology industry as a service provider to corporations, banks and telecommunications. Originally from Durban, she spent most of her career working in Johannesburg.
She has been a resident of the Dolphin Coast for five years and will be the resident association’s first port of call in all management functions.
Lever says DOCRRA has been hard at work to rejuvenate the association, completed with a refreshed logo, website and a comprehensive new strategy.
“With the support of Simbithi and Brettenwood Estates, we are now able to tackle many issues and ideas that we and our members have identified,” said Lever.
Some of those issues and ideas include continued and improved communications with the municipality to ensure service delivery for the 30 000 residents and ratepayers in Wards 4, 6, 20, 21 and 22 in the Greater Ballito/Dolphin Coast area,” said Lever.
DOCRRA’s main goal remains to look after the concerns of all Dolphin Coast residents and ratepayers by being a liaison between community members, big business and the municipality.
The R120 annual membership subscription enables the association to function administratively, and Walker will be making sure that a smooth running ship is well organised and effective.
DOCRRA’s annual general meeting will be held on May 22, where the association’s new constitution and business plan for 2019/2020 will be presented.
