The Role of the MCOBA Executive Committee

The role of the Old Boys’ Executive Committee (Exec) is to guide the MCOBA on all operational activities to ensure that the MCOBA delivers the benefits and events for its members annually. In addition, it sets the strategic direction for the MCOBA while making sure that it is aligned with the Constitution and the needs of the greater College community and associated bodies, while making sure that the traditions and ethos of the MCOBA is maintained.

The Exec champions the position of the Old Collegians and ensures that the best interests of the MCOBA are represented. The Exec meets regularly under the leadership of the President to ensure that these goals are achieved. The Exec is voluntary, and elected through a nomination process in the Annual General Meeting. We want the Exec itself to be representative of its members and diverse in skills and resources.

History of the Maritzburg College Old Boys' Association

The Maritzburg College Old Boys’ Association was founded in 1897, giving scholars an enduring opportunity to celebrate and entrench the camaraderie and brotherhood of their school years. In operation for over 100 years, the MCOBA has played a prominent role in fostering an esprit de corps amongst thousands of Old Collegians. 

The association also plays a key role in the Maritzburg College of today – in the preservation of the prestige generations of OCs have felt when they think of their school years. The support of MCOBA members is elemental in providing resources, services, and value to our great school and deserving scholars. The MCOBA has also helped and guided successive headmasters and governing bodies in making fundamental decisions and formulating central policies that affect our alma mater.

The MCOBA history is entwined in the history of Maritzburg College as a whole. The school strikes a balance between heritage and progress – offering modern facilities for the success of modern young men. For every College boy, for every Old Collegian, our futures are enriched by our history.
