The Players vote directly.

Amanda Kwaza - MSSA's Players' Representative (2006 - 2008)
In the article "Who may stand for the position of MSSA's Players' Representative?", I have already dealt with the qualifications needed by a Registered Player to be elected as MSSA's Players' Representative.

To have the Players' Represe
ntative elected by the member clubs would just be wrong.

No-one wants the Players' Representative to be by administrators. Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) wants its Players' Representative to be elected directly by the people whom he/she serves.

Thus the Players’ Representative is not be elected at the AGM, but instead is elected by Registered Players who are in standing and who are fully-paid-up. 

Even though MSSA sends out numerous communiques about the election, there are always some players who through no-ones fault, slip through the cracks.

Thus, as long as MSSA can show that it has made every reasonable effort in notifying the membership, it is deemed that all Registered Players have been notified of the election should the member clubs have been timeously notified.

It is therefore imperative that all member clubs keep all their Registered Players fully informed.

The election of the Players’ Representative is then conducted in the following manner:

  • All Registered Players who have senior Provincial, National, and Protea Colours may send in their vote on the prescribed voting form for their choice of candidate.
  • The vote may be submitted either per facsimile or by e-mail.
  • Such vote must reach the General Secretary by the close of business on or before two days prior to the AGM.
All Registered Players are thus requested to start the conversation as to who they want to see as their Players' Representative for 2019 to 2021.
