The Progressive Professionals Forum (PPF) was launched in August 2013 in Johannesburg , South Africa . The PPF was established because it was felt that:
1. The Intellectual power base of South Africa is grossly under-utilised.
2. We acknowledge that the middle class is not contributing as much as it is capable of & as often as it should towards building our country and developing its people .
3. Diversity of opinions are more effective in an inclusive framework.
4. We believe other professionals bodies are more developmental in nature and inward focussed and are therefore restricted with regard to the role that they can play in society at large.
