Our story

Turners Secretariat provides a full-house management service to Professional Associations and Societies thereby enhancing the entity’s operations to its members.

Turners Secretariat was established in 2004 as part of Turners Conferences to offer secretariat support for conference clients.

As the number of clients increased, we established a separate division, Turners Secretariat.

The wealth of knowledge and experience of our personnel, of the products and this industry, and their dedication to the client enhances our service offering.

Whether you choose the full turn-key service or opt for a modular service you are assured of the same quality of service and dedication to providing a professional solution.

Turners Secretariat is a Level 4 BBBEE Contributor.
