6 out of 13 positions go to women at MSSA elections

6 out of 13 positions go to women at MSSA elections

MSSA held its 33rd Annual General Meeting on 4 December 2016 directly after the close of the South African NationalChampionships.

To say that the South African National Championships were successful is an understatement, however, it was only a forerunner of the incredible changes that occurred at the SA National Championships.

In terms of the elections, the winds of change swept in and left MSSA to have a new vitalised committee that far better reflects South African society than before.

Six out of the 13 Board positions are now held by women, with Morizane Boyes having moved up from the Women’s Desk to now be the President of MSSA.

Morizane is a veteran gamer and has earned Protea Colours in 2014 when she represented South Africa at IeSF’s 5th World Championships – Baku, as well as being the first female to ever referee an accredited online test match.

The rest of the Board consists of:

President
Morizane Boyes (BNKR)

Vice- Presidents
James Evans (Knights Mind Sports Club)

Jessie Joubert (Rondebosch Boys)

Sheraaz Nunnian (Eastern Cape eSports)

Adele Janse van Rensburg (Vexxed Phoenix)

GENERAL SECRETARY
Colin Webster (Old Edwardian Wargames Club)

WOMEN’S DESK:
Blair Hamberger (Knights Mind Sports Club)

BOARD-GAMING REPRESENTATIVE
Joseph Matlhong (NWU Vaal Mind Sports)

CARD-GAMING REPRESENTATIVE
Paula Loftus (Masters of Mind Sports)

COMPUTER-GAMING REPRESENTATIVE:
Ryan Boyes (BNKR)

BOARD-GAMING REPRESENTATIVE
Sean Barry (Riverview Mind Sports Club)

NATIONAL SCHOOLS DIRECTOR:
Stephanie Craig (Jeppe Boys)

LEGAL ADVISOR
Carl Holliday (PBHS)

DISABLED GAMER’S REPRESENTATIVE
Twane Tollemache (BNKR)

PLAYER’S REPRESENTATIVE
Jason Batzofin (St John’s College)

There is no doubt that the new Board is all fired-up to deal with whatever is thrown at it.
