|All affiliated clubs have the ability to affect every aspect of MSSA's administration.|
Since the founding of MSSA 220 clubs have affiliated. Some of the clubs have had the staying power and have been members right from the beginning, whereas others do not have the staying power. The lack of staying-power can often be ascribed to clubs not having the proper structures to enable hand-over from outgoing to incoming committees.
Where clubs are based on an individual, the club may not survive. It seems as though clubs without proper structures only seem to have a three to five year life expectancy.
Thus clubs based at established institutions seem to have a greater chance of surviving through the years and being able to deal with those unexpected events.
MSSA, with over 30 years under its belt, has seen many clubs, organisations, and operators come-and-go.
At MSSA's annual General Meeting held in December 2020, MSSA accepted no less than a further 8 clubs into full membership.
Such clubs now all enjoy all the rights of full membership and are now able to help steer MSSA and help all the disciplines (Board Games, Card Games, Esports, and Wargames) grow.
The clubs accepted into membership at MSSA's 37th National Convention held on 5 December 2020 are:
