Meet the Administrative Team.
The admin team ensures the smooth and efficient running of Maa on a day-to-day basis. We take care of the official behind-the-scenes so the rest of the committee can carry out their work with ease. Everything goes through the admin team first, so we are the official directories for any information required of Maa. This also allows us to monitor the activities of each team, ensuring transparency, cooperation and effectiveness.
