SOBA DMV Chapter
Sasse Old Boys Association (SOBA) America has seen a steady growth over the past 25 years, from only a handful of chapters to eleven chapters. The SOBA DMV chapter is a non-profit alumni association, whose members are ex-students of Saint Joseph College SASSE, Buea, Cameroon, residing in DC, Maryland, Virginia. We also have members residing in Delaware, NJ and NY.
SOBA DMV is the oldest chapter of SOBA America and Sasse Alumni Assoc. Inc; a 501 (c) organization functioning in absolute compliance with the US IRS laws that govern such bodies. It is the non- profit arm of SOBA America.
As the chapter with the most Sobans in the US, SOBA DMV has the luxury of having members from the earliest classes, with members enjoying a common sense of familiarity and camaraderie with each other regardless of their years of attendance.
Membership is open to all ex-students of SJC who have paid their $100 annual registration dues. The $100 dues is the primary source for funds for most of the projects of the chapter in addition to fundraisers organized by the chapter. Members who have paid their dues are eligible for all member benefits such as death and bereavements.
Orbituary – Soban Eric Nganje Passes

Erico, as most of affectionately called him, was a registered member of SOBA DMV and SOBA America who just renewed his membership on December 31st. He leaves behind his wife and daughter as well as brothers and sisters. We ask that you please keep him and his family in your prayers.
Funeral arrangements are as follows:

We need to be On TIME!
We cannot effectively institute our protocol if we are late.
Let’s not come late hoping that someone will already be there and leave 2 or 3 Sobans by themselves.
