Office of the SAMAHAN Secretary-General

CALL TO ORDER

Having reached a quorum, Regel Asuero, the SAMAHAN President, called the order of the meeting by 6:00 PM. He then presided the meeting, first, by enumerating the agenda.

Presentation and Discussion of Agenda

1. Buklod Atenista

a. Regel Asuero informed the SAMAHAN Central Board (SCB) that Ivy Torregosa, previously

appointed Buklod Ambassador (SY 2013-2014) has already recommended a new Buklod Ambassador (for SY 2014-2015) to him. It is currently on the process of assessing the recommended ambassador.

b. Peter Paul Paras presented to the SCB of the update on Buklod Atenista:

i. The Buklod Atenista Annual Conference will be held on May 27-31, 2014 at Ateneo de Naga University (AdNU).

ii. There will be a registration fee, covering the expenses such as transportation, food, accommodation, and Buklod Atenista Permanent Secretariat (BAPS) expenses. The total cost of the conference minus the subsidy given by the host school, AdNU, divided by the different school delegations, is the amount to be paid as registration fee. The average cost for the registration is around Php 3,000.00-3,500.00 per person.

iii. On the Conference Proper:

1. In Buklod Atenista, there will be discussion of issues, drafting of resolutions, talks by several speakers (e.g. Hon. Jesse Robredo), and presentation of best practices and common problems per school.

2. If the Ateneo de Davao has a resolution, all five (5) schools should follow the drafted resolution.

iv. Number of Delegates:

1. There is no maximum number of delegations per school. The required delegates that should attend the conference are the President and the Buklod Ambassador.

2. During a conference in Ateneo de Zamboanga University (AdZU), the Ateneo de Manila University (AdMU) recommended to have a cut-off of delegates per school but it was not approved in the conference.

3. Also in a Buklod Atenista Conference, it was also approved to require a delegate from the Campus Clubs Organization (CCO), preferably the Chairperson.

v. On Buklod Atenista Permanent Secretariat (BAPS):

1. The BAPS is in AdDU.

2. The BAPS presides over the meetings during the conference. Previously, there was a separate plenary session for the different club organizations

of the Ateneo schools; thus, made it difficult for BAPS to oversee the ongoing plenary sessions. BAPS requested the SAMAHAN Secretary- General to preside over the meeting in different plenary sessions.

vi. Orientation on what the Division Representatives can do:

1. Peter Paras discussed to the SCB the Ateneo Youth Agenda. The Buklod Atenista gathered the three (3) most pressing issues of the five (5) Ateneo schools. They made a 40-page report and sent it to the Senators running for elections.

2. The Buklod Atenista Conferences are more responsive if there are more delegates discussing issues. It will be more dynamic.

3. Based on previous conferences, it was difficult to bring a Division Representative since after the Buklod Atenista, the division representatives will be going back to their divisions. Once you are a delegate, it is a responsibility to accomplish those resolutions drafted.

4. Regel Asuero said that it is also important for the representatives to

know what is happening in the conference. They should challenge their constituents on the dissemination of information regarding Buklod Atenista. It is part of the agenda of the division representatives to make ways for this information to be channeled to their divisions. Further, he also said that updates regarding Buklod Atenista should not only be limited to the SAMAHAN-level since this for the benefit of the students. vii. Peter Paras wants to be an outgoing BAPS Secretary-General. He further

stressed that when the ambassadors vote for BAPS, they are voting for the seat, and not the person. It is better to have a transition as early as now.

viii. BAPS Secretary-General is appointed by the President. All appointees should go through the SCB, but the President has the final say.

ix. Allexy Flores asked if there is still a need to bring tokens for the delegates. Peter Paras said no. It is not necessary, but we can bring tokens as a “pabaon” for other schools.

x. On Financial Matters:

1. Regel Asuero asked if all of the expenses are covered by SAMAHAN.

2. Peter Paras responded that during the administration of Maureen Villamor, there was a ceiling budget of more or less, Php 60,000.00. Last year, the two (2) First Year Representatives were budgeted as one for Php 3,500.00.

3. Allexy Flores said that she plans to book a flight from Manila to Naga (via Cebu Pacific) which amounts to Php 4,108.00. Her budget for Buklod Atenista is Php 50,000.00.

4. Peter Paras suggested that the delegates will ride a bus, since it is cheaper. There is also enough time if delegates ride a bus since the entire day of the first day is allotted for the arrival of delegates in Naga.

5. Allexy Flores responded that the difference in the expenses when riding a bus from plane is only Php 200.00, but she will re-check.

xi. Peter Paras said that AdDU will host the Midyear Conference since there was a failure of elections in AdMU.

xii. Delegates for Buklod Atenista:

1. The initial delegates for Buklod Atenista were: (1) President, (2) Ambassador, (3) Incoming Ambassador, (4) CCO Chairperson, and (5) SAMAHAN Secretary-General.

2. Peter Paras asked if it’s final that AdDU will send only five (5) delegates. Alexis Alberto said that we can increase the number of delegates since it is an Annual Conference. It is justifiable that there will be more delegates, but not too plenty, to attend the Annual Conference compared to the Midyear Conference.

3. Allexy Flores asked the SCB if we are going to increase the number of delegates. What are the mechanisms that we are going to do? Should we follow Mau’s idea?

4. Alexis Alberto replied that we can let members from Office of the Buklod Ambassador (OBA) attend the Conference. Peter Paras further stated that the reason why there were a lot of delegates from AdDU

Office of the SAMAHAN Secretary-General

before was that AdDU only has a limited capacity in going to external events. So, a lot of delegates participated to “feel the Buklod feeling”.

5. Allexy Flores decided to increase the budget for Buklod Atenista from Php 50,000.00 to P60,000.00. The SCB agreed upon the decision. Thus, the final number of delegates to attend the Buklod Atenista Annual Conference that will be shouldered by the SAMAHAN Central Board is six (6).

6. It was voted upon that an officer from the SAMAHAN Central Board will be the 6 th delegate for Buklod Atenista Annual Conference.

7. The 6 th delegate will be finalized on the next meeting, May 2, 2014

(Friday).

xiii. There will be a separate meeting regarding the issues to be tackled/raised in the Buklod Atenista Annual Conference.

2. Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP)

a. Regel Asuero received a letter from Ace dela Cruz, a member of Ateneans For Agrarian Reform Movement (AFARM) in AdMU. He is asking for the support of the Ateneo schools through their student governments.

b. Regel Asuero gave a brief background on CARP and AFARM.

i. It is a land reform act pertaining to the distribution of land for the farmers.

ii. The CARP will due on June 2014.

iii. There were a lot of motions President Aquino haven’t distributed the lands yet. This is another job for the student governments to pressure the government to pressure the President to act on this issue.

opinion and actualize the concepts we have learned from the university.

c. All of the members of the SAMAHAN Central Board agreed to make a stand as a board.
