Since the establishment of MPPUTB in 2011, the ceremony has been organised annually to officially introduce the new line of members of the Student Representative Council to the students and lecturers of UTB.

The members were appointed through a selection process conducted by the alumni of MPPUTB and selected UTB staff which included a challenging orientation camp to further test their capabilities and expose them to better understand their tasks, roles and responsibilities as new leaders.

The ceremony also celebrated the end of service for the previous batch of MPPUTB Session 2018/2019 members who were presented with certificates of acknowledgement by the guest of honour.

A total of 99 certificates were given out to the former members of MPPUTB Session 2018/2019 to appreciate their dedication and commitment throughout their one year of service.
