Administrative history

The Women's Athletic Association was established at the birth of U.B.C. to oversee all female athletic activity on campus. The Women's Athletic Executive was originally composed of an elected president, appointed team members, and faculty. In 1940, following the model of the Men's Athletic Association, the executive changed to a directorate system with the hopes of more balanced representation and to be 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 A.M.S. abided by the rules of the Directorate. Through constitution revisions around 1946, the Women's Athletic Directorate continued to meet as a separate body, but became dependent upon the Men's Athletic Directorate for both funds and policy.
