The Employers Consultative Association of Malawi (Ecam) has expressed concern over stagnating membership which it says worrisome to the employer’s body.
Speaking on the sidelines of Ecam’s 26th Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Friday in Blantyre, Ecam acting executive director Emmanuel Magomero, said the organisation has since drafted a strategic plan for 2019 to 2023 to help them keep and attract more members.
He said: “What we want is to have a national presence like offices in Lilongwe and Mzuzu so that we have members on the ground doing the marketing. It will help us in terms of membership recruitment because we will be visible.”
Ecam outgoing president Emmanuel Banda, attributed the stagnating membership to the country’s slow economic growth.
Despite the challenges, he said Ecam has been able to be an objective voice for employers whom they epresent them in numerous arrangements.
Newly appointed Ecam council member Roselyn Lockie promised to work towards fulfilling some of the strategic goals set by Ecam.
Other members that were selected into Ecam council include Beyani Munthali, Lameck Gomani, Buxton Kayuni, George Matipwili, Richard Kunjawa and Anna Chavula.
