Time to have your say.

Morizane Boyes - President of Mind Sports South Africa
Unlike any other esports organisation in South Africa, Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) offers its members an opportunity to decide on the direction that esports shall take in South Africa.

How is this done?

Through MSSA's Annual General Meeting (AGM) member clubs are able to propose motions, and vote on issues that directly have an impact on the disciplines and games that fall under MSSA's jurisdiction.

Any motion timeously submitted by a member club must be be tabled on the agenda of such AGM.

All member clubs then vote on any such motion which allows the majority to have their say.

However, more importantly, it is at such AGM that MSSA elects its office-bearers - whether they stand for the Management Board, Provincial Directorships, and/or Regional Directorships.

Since MSSA is driven by good governance, no person may hold more than one position. Also, any Registered Player in good-standing at the date of nomination may stand for any available position. To stand, the Registered Player must be nominated by an affiliated member club (also in good-standing) and must sign the letter of undertaking.

Remember that these, although voluntary, positions are work positions. Even though there is no pay, MSSA expects its office-bearers to be as professional as possible.

Positions on the Management Board (these positions have a three-year term) that are available for the 2017 AGM are:
  • Two (2) Vice-President positions,
  • One (1) Figure gaming Representative, and
  • One (1) National Schools Director.
Nominations must be submitted by member clubs by 1 November 2017 and all nominees must be fully-paid-up for the 2017/2018 year.
