|Amanda Pakade, MSSA president, is responsible for overseeing the changes agreed to at the AGM.|
There were 13 changes proposed to amend the Constitution, and 36 proposed changes to the Regulations.
Many of the changes had been discussed from the beginning of 2018 by the Management Board, and such changes were often hotly debated.
The amendments ranged from simple housekeeping, in other words correcting grammar, and so forth, to more far reaching issues such as improved good governance, better selection criteria for the national teams, improved delegation of duties, and better delivery to its members.
Not a single proposed amendment was rejected, and even more surprisingly, the member clubs spoke with a single voice as the motions were all unanimously accepted.
The amendments shall be further discussed in future blogs, and it should be noted that the amendments are all designed to make MSSA more streamlined, more competitive, and far more forward thinking.
