Constituent College Officers and Councils Election Results for the 2023 – 2026 Triennium

The Colleges of Medicine of South Africa (CMSA) recently underwent a successful election process for the Constituent College Councils and Senate for the 2023-2026 triennium. Conducted with integrity, this Triennial process is paramount for the continued success and reputation of the CMSA.

Extracted from the Final Elections report: “The electoral process displayed the following characteristics:

  • Inclusive Participation: The vast interest and active participation of members, both successful and unsuccessful, signifies the commitment and dedication of the CMSA community. This engagement is crucial for maintaining the vibrancy and relevance of the Senate.
  • Technological Integration and Advancement: The use of SMS reminders and online forms has enhanced the communication efficiency within the election process. Such technological integrations demonstrate CMSA’s adaptability and its drive towards modernization.
  • Ethical Vigilance: The concerns raised during this election cycle emphasize the importance of ethical vigilance. It’s evident that CMSA members deeply value the moral integrity of their representatives, and it underscores the necessity for a robust, transparent vetting process.
  • Stewardship and Leadership Transition: offers an opportunity for fresh perspectives and innovative strategies to guide CMSA into the future. Balancing the blend of experienced and new members will be pivotal in future elections.
  • Relevance of Committees: The election for various Honorary Office Bearer positions and the emphasis on diverse committees, such as the Risk Committee and Social and Ethics Committee, reinforce the CMSA’s commitment to holistic governance.

In summary, the CMSA Senate elections not only reflect the democratic ethos of the organization but also shed light on areas of improvement. These elections, with their successes and challenges, offer a roadmap for refining future electoral processes, ensuring CMSA continues to thrive as a beacon of excellence in medical governance.”

The leadership of the CMSA would once more like to Congratulate our elected Constituent College office bearers and Council members.
