Deadline for motions, nominations, games titles - 7 November 2015
Simphiwe Maphumulo - MSSA President (2014 to present)
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
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.
is little doubt that no other organisation has done as much for
eSports in South Africa as Mind Sports South Africa.
other body has sent as many teams overseas.
No other body has spent as much on
developing the sport.
other body hosts as many games at its championships.
other body holds as many championships in any given year.
other body develops gaming at school level.
other body is fully accredited and offers its membership a share in
yet, MSSA is run exclusively by volunteers.
the volunteers give hours of their free time to ensure the success of
MSSA and those that participate in its events.
is therefore important for all Member Clubs and Registered Players to
note that the closing date for motions, game titles, and nominations
positions is 7 November 2015.
following positions will be up for election at the 2015 AGM to
be held on 13
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.
a Registered Player may only be elected into one position. Thus if a
Registered Player is elected into a position, all other nominations
nominations may only be made by affiliated members (clubs) which are
fully -paid-up as at the date of the nomination.
such good governance, there is no wonder that MWEB has sponsored MSSA
for three consecutive years.
