WAPA is in the process of regionalising its members’ lists to make it easier for the public in your region to find you. We’re also adding a connectivity map that makes the process really quick and simple.
It’s on! The WAPALOZA training conference and Expo is booked to take place from 16-18 September 2019 at Leriba Lodge, Centurion, Gauteng. We have a limited number of valuable sponsorship opportunities available. To find out more about sponsorship opportunities please download the WAPALOZA brochure.
WAPA has embarked on an aggressive social media marketing campaign to dramatically increase the number of connection requests from the public. Four days a week on Facebook we post content that will drive more connection requests via the WAPA website and ultimately to you. There are both generic and regional posts and we have invested in boosting of the posts to ensure they reach an extended, target audience.
