acting President of the Association. All the Officers present in the meeting
agreed to the suggestion.
2.3 Officers present expressed that they will support whatever
the Presidency decides.

should be simple and doable and must not be elaborate
so the Assocation has no difficulty attaining it.

will be a decent event.
-Officer Elections for the Organization will be held at the Septmeber picnic.
3.2 It was suggested that the "I MISS THE OLD BAGUIO" musical presentaiton
be used as a potential to recruit new members to the Organization.
