Deadline for motions, nominations, games titles - 7 November 2015

Simphiwe Maphumulo - MSSA President (2014 to present)
With the end of the year is rushing towards us, it is time to once again remind the Member Clubs and the Registered Players that the Annual General Meeting (AGM) is to be held on the 13th of December 2015, directly after the end of play at the S A National championships.
It is at the AGM that MSSA decides upon the titles to be played in 2016, the motions as submitted by the Member Clubs, and the election of those who will act as stewards of MSSA. At such meeting the various reports of the Office-Bearers are scrutinised.

There is little doubt that no other organisation has done as much for eSports in South Africa as Mind Sports South Africa.
No other body has sent as many teams overseas.
No other body has spent as much on developing the sport.
No other body hosts as many games at its championships.
No other body holds as many championships in any given year.
No other body develops gaming at school level.
No other body is fully accredited and offers its membership a share in such accreditation.
And yet, MSSA is run exclusively by volunteers.
All the volunteers give hours of their free time to ensure the success of MSSA and those that participate in its events.
It is therefore important for all Member Clubs and Registered Players to note that the closing date for motions, game titles, and nominations for positions is 7 November 2015.
The following positions will be up for election at the 2015 AGM to be held on 13 December 2015:

Management Board:
  • 1st Vice-President (in charge of development)
  • Board Gaming Representative
  • Card Gaming representative
  • Figure Gaming Representative
  • Member representing Players with disabilities
Provincial Directors:
  • Eastern Cape, 
  • Free State, 
  • Gauteng, 
  • KwaZulu Natal, 
  • Limpopo, 
  • Mpumulanga,
  • Northern Cape, and 
  • Western Cape
Regional directors
Selection Committee
  • All four positions
To stand for a position for any of the above positions, a player must be affiliated to an affiliated club and must be a fully-paid-up member as at the date of being nominated as well as at the date of election. Any Registered Player who has reached the age of majority may stand for any/all of the above-mentioned positions.
However, a Registered Player may only be elected into one position. Thus if a Registered Player is elected into a position, all other nominations are vitiated.
All nominations may only be made by affiliated members (clubs) which are fully -paid-up as at the date of the nomination.

With such good governance, there is no wonder that MWEB has sponsored MSSA for three consecutive years.
