Administrative history

The Men's Athletic Association (MAA) was established at UBC to oversee all-male athletic activities and manage and distribute the athletic budget. The MAA executive was composed of an elected president and treasurer, the various appointed team managers, and faculty members. In 1939 the executive was reduced to an advisory capacity, responsible for running Association meetings. In its place, the Men's Athletic Directorate was established, with more balanced representation and more representative of the Alma Mater Society. The directorate was reconstituted as an autonomous body, no longer under the control of the AMS Student Council, in 1945.
