Administrative history

The Women's Athletic Association was established at the founding of UBC to oversee all-female athletic activity. The Women's Athletic Executive was initially composed of an elected president, appointed team members, and faculty. In 1940, following the Men's Athletic Association model, the executive changed to a directorate system to more balanced representation and was more representative of the Alma Mater Society. The Women's Athletic Directorate continued to oversee the constitutions and budgets of the athletic clubs and ensure that both clubs and individuals taking part in sports on campus or representing the AMS abided by the rules of the Directorate. Through constitution revisions around 1946, the Women's Athletic Directorate continued to meet as an independent body. However, it became dependent upon the Men's Athletic Directorate for funds and policy.
