Women may dominate Mind Sports South Africa’s Management Board after AGM

Women may dominate Mind Sports South Africa’s Management Board after AGM

Members of MSSA‘s Management Board sat up to the wee hours of the mornin to check all the nominations that were submitted for the 2016 elections to be held at the Annual General Meeting on 4 December 2016.

On reviewing the nominations received, the ‘Old Boys’ Club’ so prevalent in gaming may just disappear.

Even though the 2016 elections have received a  record amount of  nominations for the Management Board, there are still four positions on such Board which are unopposed, being the position for the Card gaming representative, eSports Representative, General Secretary, and the Legal Advisor.

Obviously, everyone  is quite content with the performance of the incumbent officers.

The most encouraging aspect to the 2016 elections is that there are no fewer than seven women who are standing for positions.

The Management Board has 13 positions in total, so if all the women win their seats, MSSA could indeed have a different ‘face’, and would be the first mind sports body world-wide that would have true gender equity.

The full list of players standing for election for the Management Board are:
