Some 21 members attended the pre- turn over meeting.
After the invocation, ascertation of attendance and quorum, the former and incoming VHSAFI President, Marc Bautista, propelled the meeting with a big thank you for those who served the Foundation last year and with exhortations of unity, sincere and honest dedication of service to the VHSAFI for the new ones.
Past positive achievements were highlighted with suggestions on how to improve further to consolidate successes and most importantly, mistakes and omissions of the past were enumerated and humbly the Board accepted the lessons to be used and capitalized in order not to trod the same path for this year and create opportunities for a better concerted team work for 2014-2015.
- A resolve by the new Board Members to carry on their duties and responsibilities with more dedication and self sacrifice was subscribed by everyone present. To tangibly attest to this resolution, it was proposed to add to the OATH of office a distinct delineation the undersigned elected and appointed officer understands the duties and responsibilities he is getting into and swears to do everything, to the best of his abilities, to comply, perform and deliver whatever he accepts as his loads, despite the voluntary nature of the service.
A formal turnover and one day Strategic Planning by the New Board with Ex-officio Members was set for May 17, given the nearest free time when the majority of the members are free. Meanwhile, the Celebrating Batches with the VHSAFI President and Treasurer will continue to hold special meetings to fast track fund raising plans and preparations for 2015 Annual Meet.
Reports from the different Officers followed:
The former Chair, Ms Amy Nerecina was unanimously voted to the same position. She will remain as Chair of the EDUCOM COMMITTEE for 2014-2015.
The President praised her dedication and leadership in bringing success to the sector, raising student grantees from 60 to 93 by inviting more sponsors and donors to support this VHSAFI flagship project.
WAYS AND MEANS & SPECIAL PROJECTS
It was again underlined during the time of this sector to renew MOU with the VHS Principal to feed VHSAFI with information regarding Batch Projects and School Donations, not coursed through VHSAFI.
- It is the Board's desire to disseminate information about the donation to all Alumni to spread goodwill and amplify the joy that many Batches are giving back to the Alma Mater 8n many different ways.
Also, VHSAFI, through the SPECIAL PROJECTS COMMITTEE may help monitor the safe keeping and maintenance of the donations.
Lately, a new sound system and a CCTV System was installed in the School by some VHS Batch Org. It is our wish, being the umbrella Organization of all VHS Alumni Batch Orgs to be informed to multiply the cheers and assist 8n proper handling of said donations thru the members of Special Projects Com.
2015 ALUMNI HOMECOMING (see my report above).
Ms Becky Wilder of Class'65 expressed her willingness to sponsor the Band to perform for the reunion of 2015 as well as sponsor her Batch's Registration Fee for the Bowling Tournament.
Finally after much anticipation, the Treasurer's Report. However, the printed information of the VHSAFI Financial Statement has yet to be completed with complete bank statements due only on April 15 and should be subject to internal and subsequently, external audit. Given the sensitivity of the matter, the Old and the New Board concurred to out the official FS report after the Start Planning of May 17, 2014.
