Ingrid Lentswane, Jacaranda Chapter Chapter Chairperson was born and bred in Mamelodi, East of Pretoria. The city of Jacaranda Trees, She studied BSocSci in Psychology at the University of Pretoria.  She is currently employed by the Independent Police Investigative Directorate responsible for Employee Health and Wellness, as well as Special Programmes, dealing with issues of Gender, Disability and Transformation,  Ms Lentswane is very passionate about the “Wellbeing” of employees. For the next coming year, Jacaranda Chapter will be focusing on “Caring for the Caregivers” and I am looking forward to growing the Chapter to becoming fully functional and active again.

The location of Jacaranda Chapter in Tshwane SA’s Executive Seat of government and home to many SEO’s and large, medium and small corporations provides the chapter with a huge membership base of EAP and Wellness Practitioners – as attested to by their attendance at the annual conference where Jacaranda Chapter has the majority of conference delegates each year, with 77 attending the most recent 2016 conference.  The chapter also boasts being located in a city with universities offering qualifications in behavioural sciences such as psychology and social work which are key in EAP practice. In addition both the UP and UNISA offers short courses which are key to EAP.  The Executive of the EAP Jacaranda Chapter therefore has set itself a challenge of placing Jacaranda as a leading EAPA-SA Chapter in terms of membership and professional designation. This will be done through the use of various models such as Management Consultations where leadership will meet with top and senior management of various organisations to market EAP standards as part of marking EAPA-SA; EAP membership recruitment drives; partnerships with institutions of Higher Learning for ease of student recruitment and guest lecturing on EAP.
