Quite a few posts up for election at MSSA's 2016 Annual General Meeting

Simphiwe Maphumulo - MSSA's President since December 2013
There is no doubt that the 2016 MSSA Annual General Meeting to be held in December 2016 will be an exciting affair.

Not only will there be some important proposed changes to the Constitution apropos ensuring gender equity, but a number of the positions on the Management Board will be up for grabs.

The positions up for  election are:
  1. President
  2. 1st  Vice-President (in charge  of development)
  3. 2nd vice-president (in charge of umpiring)
  4. Board gaming representative
  5. Card gaming representative
  6. eSports representative
  7. National  Schools Director
  8. Women's desk
  9. Legal adviser
  10. Representative for gamers who are differently abled
  11. General Secretary
Positions not eligible for election in 2016 are:
  1. 3rd Vice President (in charge of events)
  2. Figure gaming representative
  3. Player's representative
Thus the 2016 elections will be more than interesting.

Never before have so many positions become available at the same time.

There is no doubt that the committee has worked well over  the past number of years, and it will indeed be interesting to again see democracy at work.

As it can be  seen from the above, MSSA does not hold truck with 'succession plans', but instead trusts entirely on its membership applying its mind and electing the right people to further promote gaming in South Africa.

Who will go, and who will stay, that is indeed the question.
