MINUTES Approval of Agenda Motion to approve agenda by 2 SOM CB, seconded by 3 SOH CB. Agenda approved unanimously.

Approval of 051713 Minutes Motion to approve minutes by 2 SOSE CB, seconded by 2 SOM CB. Minutes approved unanimously.

Privilege Speech Motion to change presidership to VP by VP, seconded by Sec-Gen. Motion approved unanimously. Remo: It’s our first CB session this year. We face dilemmas, vacancies. I am filled with optimism. I see a lot of potential and hope, we are filled with that optimism that we can still fulfill our function. We as a student government are diverse. Sometimes it’s hard to see the big picture. I hope now as we begin our first CB session, that all units can be more aligned. We are in the service of service. Let us protect the rights of all student groups. We have a big mandate ahead of us. Some of us just came back from the Buklod Atenista conference. One thing we learned is that we are so blessed as a student council. We have a lot of resources, and potential. But we don’t maximize them. Some worry about getting to school alive, while we worry about parking, classes, facilities. It really puts things into perspective. We should remember our call to be student leaders with and for others. We have forgotten our call of servicing our fellow students together and as we move forward, there are a lot of changes that we are expecting. It is my hope and my prayer that together we will align, that together we will work together for the common interest. Let’s work for Ateneo. Motion to change presidership to Pres by Pres, seconded by 2 SOM CB. Motion approved unanimously.

LIONS Presentation: Albaña: What is LIONS? As our name suggests, we are a league of unaccredited orgs. We help them to get accredited if they want to. We help unaccredited orgs continue to be orgs. In the recent years, there has been a boom in unaccredited orgs. We want to assist in the facilitation

CENTRAL BOARD

and monitoring of the unaccredited orgs, aside from OSA. We want to be a task force of Sanggu, as long as have the benefits of being such. We want the ability to propose budgets as a league. We can follow up with OSA more often, be their manpower, aside from CODE. We can reserve venues easier. Unaccredited orgs that need the assistance of the Ateneo name for a certain project could request help from Sanggu through LIONS. Lucero: Do you think it is still efficient to course these services through LIONS? It used to be done by CEA, but it took quite long to address the projects for these orgs, which was why they created LIONS because it wouldn’t have to go through the bureaucracy. Are the orgs under LIONS okay with the bureaucracy involved with it becoming a task force? Lopez: While the inefficiency is something we want to remove, it is more important for us to offer the other things that we could offer: Ateneo name, if approved. If inefficiency is the price to offer projects the name, we are okay with that. Poe: Could Micha clarify the distinction of accredited orgs from unaccredited orgs? Aldea: I want to point out that you’re labeling it as a task force, but from the Consti, the privileges you enumerated are like that of a sector. The privileges of accreditation are those presented. Kung meron naman process involved, why create this added structural mechanism? Castro: We’re not aiming to be a sector. We are not a sector in the sense that we cannot vote. Everything that goes through us will go through Sanggu CB for the final say. We understand that the benefit of the Ateneo name is for the COA orgs. A good number of our orgs are working towards accreditation. We don’t think that this is a one-way thing—part of the steps to get accredited is that the org gets prestige, here in Ateneo and outside. No one’s going to listen to nameless orgs that are not officially Ateneo orgs. I think it’s worth considering helping their projects, even one time. Elicaño: Are the privileges you’re proposing permanent, or per-project? Castro: Per project. Aldea: But OSA already does that. If the orgs under LIONS don’t want to put themselves under too much bureaucracy, why add another layer to it? Also, question of mandate—I’m part of Health Sciences Society and it’s not in LIONS. There’s a contention to who you are really representing. Castro: Technically we are aware that OSA is supposed to help all orgs. But in practice, we, as LIONS orgs, we don’t feel the presence of OSA’s help so much. Even though we know the requirements for accreditation, we don’t know the nitty-gritty details. They need someone like LIONS to help them with practicals. Andujare: How representative is your group? How many orgs do you have, and how many of them actually want this? Lopez: We have 19 unaccredited orgs agreeing to be part of LIONS. How much, we’ll take back the statement that we would represent all unaccredited orgs, but will instead represent those who are willing to be represented.

Aldea: How do orgs apply to be part of LIONS? Castro: You have to be an org recognized by OSA, although we recognize that not all unaccredited orgs are on that list. We also recognize the dilemma regarding the term “org”—our proposal is that an org should have functions and service to the members of the org, and those outside. Cruz: What are the programs LIONS offers for unaccredited orgs? Sunglao: Current plans—targeted help with accreditation. LIONS Week as venue for recruitment. Lopez: Not a RecWeek per se. Also helping LIONS orgs with the current RecWeek, helping them with requirements. Castro: LIONS Week as a venue for showcasing unaccredited orgs, letting people know that they exist. Bolilia: Expound on positions in your EB and each department? Castro: High Chancellor is LIONS Rep, gathers concerns and receives correspondence. SecTreas keeps track of orgs, measures whether or not they’re still alive. Lopez: Special Projects—LIONS Week, and assisting orgs with flagship tie-up projects. Sunglao: OrgDev—not just from stability but for accreditation. And Branding, whose Head couldn’t make it, handles logos and promotions. Yu: I’m iffy with what was presented today. It’s asking for the benefits of accreditation without the process. Sanggu should help unaccredited orgs, but with regard to using the Ateneo name, that’s the purpose of accreditation. No matter how many levels of bureaucracy you add, I’m not sure if that’s enough reason not to go through the process. Castro: We are not saying using the Ateneo name is not something you should work for. But some unaccredited orgs will need it on a per-project basis, subject to approval. Aldea: Do you know the value of not being able to use the Ateneo name nang basta-basta? I’m not sure if the Sanggu can allow certain groups to just brandish the Ateneo name. Remo: Anything that has to do with student life, is the business of the student government. Before, the Internals VP handled anything internal to the Ateneo, including student groups. This position was abolished in favor of creating sectors, like COA and ARSA. Dispensing the name is the right of the administration, but we as shareholders can use facilities and the like. Aldea: It is our responsibility as students to not create anything that will jeopardize the Ateneo name. Quality control through OSA and accreditation. There is value in the process. Castro: We understand the value and the weight, but visibility matters as well. Gomez: We should define the rights of a student group. Some things are privileges and some things are rights, and Sanggu should address rights first. Poe: How necessary is the Ateneo name for the support package you’re offering? Izo: We ask to be a task force so that we are accountable to Sanggu. What we’re asking for is the ability to give a project that is good enough a chance to use the Ateneo name. Andujare: You are asking to be a task force, a permanent thing. It’s too big.

Aldea: Differentiate task force from a sector. Remo: As defined by the Constitution, only the CB can call for a task force. Sectors are autonomous, free to perform their functions as long as they’re under the general mandate of the student government. Task forces are executive committees formed by the CB to execute functions. Uy: With regard to using the name, the privilege of using the name comes with accreditation. When you think about using the name project-based, it’s kind of short-term. When you want to teach your org something, you have to teach it to think long-term. With the way the accreditation process worksevery year, you’re always at risk of being unaccredited. Accredited orgs only really need the Ateneo name for external projects. If that’s the only use, and you’re providing it to unaccredited orgs as well, you have this safety net. Aldea: I don’t think that giving them the privileges would help them grow. Elicaño: A lot of what these orgs are concerned with is survival, having people know that they exist. Perhaps the question is, what more should we be doing for them that we are not doing yet? Motion to extend by five minutes by 2 SOM CB, seconded by 3 SOM CB. Objection by ARSA. EXTEND – 7 DO NOT EXTEND – 3 Vice-President 4 SOM CB Secretary-General COA Finance Officer ARSA 3 SOH CB 2 SOM CB 3 SOM CB 2 SOSE CB Time extended for five minutes. Andujare: Study the structure of Sanggu—there are many avenues for you guys. You just have to know who to talk to. Yu: If there is no motion from the body, status quo will remain. With regard to the name, please understand that we can’t take it lightly. Continue to work with us, and we will continue to find ways to support you. Aldea: As far as we’re concerned, the right to organize has not been curtailed. Is it a structural issue, or a service to user problem? Castro: We can not exist. We want to exist because we think that it would help the unaccredited orgs. It would be convenient for LIONS to be there. Gomez: Address your rights and needs, but the problem is I think you’re asking too much. Survival is a right. Address first your coordination with CEA. Reyes: In line with this, also want in the minutes that there is a need to delineate terms like orgs, student groups, barkadas, and the like. Working on that.

Aldea: Clarify whether it is a structural issue. Coordination issue just means knowing how to talk to the right people. And we’re building a new structure for that little problem? Lopez: On behalf of LIONS, we are willing to concede a lot of what was said today. But we will still ask if we can be a task force. Our understanding of that is that it’s a temporary, ad hoc thing. We’re asking to be an answer to the recent explosion of unaccredited orgs. Even if you deny us most of what we asked for, we’re still asking. Motion by Sec-Gen to direct CEA to coordinate with LIONS in preparation for a final proposal later, seconded by 3 SOH CB. Objection by FO. Andujare: If we approve this motion, does this mean they will still ask to be a task force? Remo: Not included in the motion. Cruz: Does this mean they will become a task force after that consultation? Remo: Still up to the CB when they propose. Motion approved unanimously.

Buklod Atenista Motion to change presidership to VP by VP, seconded by 2 SOSE CB. Motion approved unanimously. Motion to change presidership to FO by FO, seconded by 2 SOSE CB. Motion approved unanimously. Remo: As some of you are familiar, some of us went as the ADMU delegation to Zamboanga for Buklod Atenista. This presentation is in line with that. Gomez: Alliance of all Philippine Jesuit school student governments, formed 30 years ago. External organization which we are a part of. Mandate to represent all Ateneo schools and all Ateneans in the country. 30th Buklod was held last May 27-June 1, hosted by ADZU. Externalization efforts. Maximizing the potential of Buklod. Going big. Remo: The new purpose of Buklod is to be able to unite Ateneans. To create projects jointly. To be able to be, as one alliance, be more effective. <Resolutions from Buklod are presented.> Remo: Establishing research units. Mandates Sanggu to coordinate with other student governments, give access to each other’s files. Gomez: Full disclosure of the school’s finances. Remo: Transparency of funds. Gomez: Issue on social network blocking in other schools, involvement of umbrella org heads in Buklod, appointment of ambassadors.

Gomez: Involve the sixth Ateneo school. Loyola College of Culion. Remo: Participation of this school in Buklod, to fully represent the Atenean population. Gomez: We can’t address problems we don’t know, the island is isolated. We have to get info from them. Gomez: Bangsamoro framework peace agreement. Gomez: Research on Crowdsourcing Act. Remo: We should coordinate with other student governments to research collectively about this issue, inform ADMU students, and come up with a stand on this issue. Gomez: Coordinating with local governments. Externalize Buklod. Support for bill on Moro History, Culture, and Identity Studies. Questions Mondok: Hasn’t inclusion of umbrella org heads been done before? Gomez: Constitutionally, only president and ambassador are required. We brought Micha, but there were no modules for umbrella org heads. Sison: To correct that, for the pst years, there have been no specific modules for org heads, but this year, I did make modules for them as BAPS. Module was made for umbrella orgs to be there. The issue was that the delegations were asymmetric—some schools sent umbrella org heads, some only sent org presidents. The resolution makes it uniform. Remo: Previously, it was up to BAPS to determine the agenda. The resolution now also effectively mandates that org concerns will also be on the agenda. Reyes: For Moro History, Culture, and Identity: college or high school or both? Remo: Primary, secondary, and tertiary. Implementation will be up to the school. Yu: Before we vote on these, may I request a full copy of each resolution to be shown? Mondok: Long-term goals of trying to integrate Culion? Remo: The point is to be able to fully represent all Ateneo students nationwide. How we can help the schools, integrate LCC into the aliance, and long term partnership with LCC. But before we think long-term, we need to address lines of communication first. Mondok: To be blunt, right now they’re a charity case? Remo: We are prioritizing them because of the morality of it—can we continue to function given one unrepresented Jesuit school? It’s a fair assessment to call them a charity case, but we are forwarding this based on our mandate as a representative body, as well as a group of students educated in Ignatian values. Poe: Is the goal to have LCC become a regular member of the Buklod conferences? Gomez: First phase is to know what they need. Making them a permanent member is far off, but this is a stepping stone for that. Remo: The resolution is simply to invite. Long-term is not in the scope.

Poe: I wanted to show the contrast with the values we’re presenting with the umbrella org resolution. In that, we wanted to make sure the discussion was on the same level [by having all schools send umbrella org heads]. Given that LCC has only one undergraduate degree, not sure how they will be able to relate to the other schools or what they can contribute. Gomez: They’re going as a resource speaker; no vote. Yu: To clarify, set-up isn’t permnanent. They’re going so the other schools can find out what’s happening there. How will the funding for their fees be set up? 20% per Buklod school? Remo: We recognize that as Buklod, we can’t have a complete exchange of information because we’ve never had contact. Ambassadors will lobby for the school admins to see how much we can contribute. Yu: Iffy with the idea that we might end up as the cash cow university. Assumption might be that we can shoulder the majority of the costs. Gomez: It’s on me as ambassador, not Sanggu. Remo: Ideally admin or Jesuit provincial. Gomez: We couldn’t act on these resolutions before this meeting. But the others have already started. Remo: None of these resolutions have been enacted, because we need approval from this body to proceed. Mondok: For inclusion of heads of umbrella orgs, ano mabibigay nilang input for the resolutions? Aldea: It’s in the resolution. Orgs are instrumental in implementing these. Motion to adopt all Buklod resolutions omnibusly by Pres, seconded by 3 SOM CB. Objection by Sec-Gen. Elicaño: Resolutions are very different in nature. And I find it disturbing that we haven’t really talked about the political ones. Motion withdrawn. Poe: Table Crowdsourcing Act for further discussion? Gomez: Let’s go through them one by one. Research Units (2013-007) Motion to adopt resolution by VP, seconded by Sec-Gen. Resolution adopted unanimously. School Finances (2013-006) Elicaño: Tin, as FO, how feasible do you think would this be? Andujare: Asking for the extent of the information requested. Gomez: All fees. Andujare: Donations, other expenses? Gomez: Just fees.

Andujare: What happens if we fail to get the information? The old system of CAO is not helping us see the finances of the school. The new system is trying to help us. Gomez: As long as we have dialogue, we’re compliant. Andujare: We have the yearly Magtanong wherein we discuss finances. Is that enough? Gomez: Up to us. Poe: I remember the case wherein one university already lobbied and their admin reacted violently. We’re a relatively empowered student government, but I’m worried about backlash from other admins of less empowered ones. Yu: Given that it was passed by the five schools, they should’ve considered these repercussions already. It should be okay. Motion to adopt resolution by VP, seconded by 4 SOM CB. Resolution adopted unanimously. Social Network Blocking (2013-004) Cruz: We’re going to vote for something that will only affect other schools? Gomez: It also calls for us to educate on Internet use, which is already being done in SCI 10. Andujare: Is there a way for monitoring all the resolutions passed? Gomez: Updates during the midyear conference. Motion to adopt resolution by Sec-Gen, seconded by ARSA. Resolution adopted unanimously. Inclusion of Umbrella Org Heads (2013-005) Gomez: Compliance would just be to send a rep from COA. The rest is for BAPS. Motion to adopt resolution by FO, seconded by 3 SOH CB. Resolution adopted unanimously. Appointment of Buklod Ambassadors (2013-001) Aldea: Inform everyone of the process? Remo: Prerogative of pres to appoint the ambassador, Andujare: We opened this for everyone last April. That was how the process started. Aldea: What will happen if the ambassador doesn’t do his job? Remo: Subject to impeachment. Motion to adopt resolution by FO, seconded by ARSA. Resolution adopted unanimously. Bangsamoro (2013-008) Motion to adopt resolution by 4 SOM CB, seconded by 2 SOSE CB. Resolution adopted unanimously.

Crowdsourcing (2013-003) Gaerlan: How will we conduct research about this? Gomez: Will need people to help me with this. DEA was in a meeting with Dr. Tolosa [of PolSci] about this already. Cruz: Execution, if ratified, is up to us? Or is it under the resolution? Gomez: Just research first. Motion to adopt resolution by 2 SOM CB, seconded by Sec-Gen. Resolution adopted unanimously. Loyola College of Culion (2013-012) Andujare: When you invite the delegates from Culion, who is shouldering the costs? Will it be all the universities? Gomez: Will hopefully come from admin. No set weights, we will have to discuss. Andujare: When you go to admin to ask for support, you h ave to be specific in what you’re asking for. Mondok: May chance na manggagaling sa SAF? Gomez: No chance. Resolution says that either admin will subsidize directly or it will be the ambassador’s responsibility to find a way. Andujare: And if admin does not give you the money, what is your plan? You bear the name of the school. Gomez: As CB, I can propose projects, right? Andujare: Are you talking about a fundraiser? Gomez: Yes. Cruz: Once we ratify this, will this be an annual thing? Gomez: One-time for now. Yu: The way it’s phrased is that in the event of no sponsors, the burden is shared equally. What if there are some sponsors but not all schools agree—still equal? Unfair for the schools whose admins would have already given money to then have to pay more. Gomez: Point is that we do our best individually to get Culion into Buklod. The body was apprehensive in putting details in the distribution of the weight. Aldea: Division is the ambassadors’ job? Remo: If that is the agreed sharing. Disbursements are still subject to the approval of CB. Aldea: What support can we give Ray when it comes to requesting from the admin? Remo: Resolution is a request for whole Sanggu to lobby. Motion to adopt resolution by FO, seconded by 3 SOH CB. Resolution adopted unanimously.

Externalize (2013-11) Elicaño: Are we Buklod or are we constituents of Buklod? Gomez: Members. Elicaño: Context: who is accountable if awareness isn’t raised, us or Buklod as a whole? Yu: Motion calls on member schools to assert themselves as members of Buklod. Motion to adopt resolution by ARSA, seconded by 3 SOM CB. Resolution adopted unanimously. Coordinate With Local Government (2013-010) Aldea: History of involvement? Remo: We’re part of the Committee on Social Involvement; this resolution enshrines what we already do. De Jesus: Local government, how do you define it? Katipunan barangay, QC mayor? It’s a broad term. Gomez: Definition of LGU—mayor and under. Motion to adopt resolution by FO, seconded by 2 SOM CB.

Yu: Who raised? Elicaño: CEA. Reyes: A lot of reps from unaccredited orgs are asking me about accountability issues with regard to the promo issue. Andujare: Can’t you resolve this by yourselves? Aldea: Same concern. Our lines are open. Unless you’re talking about an intervention. Motion to remove agenda point seconded by ARSA. Objection by FO. Andujare: Postpone to next week? Aldea: Can the Sanggunian actually do anything about it? Objection withdrawn. Motion stands. Remo: By function of COA being within the purview of Sanggu, it is possible for the CB to mandate certain courses of action.

Con-Comm Lucero: We’re supposed to be drafting a resolution. The concern is when it was drafted, what Ryan requested was a Constitutional Commission. What I am requesting is a Constitutional Convention. If Con-CoMm, team would be under the supervision the Sanggu. We will not be able to propose our own amendments without consulting the CB; we could only recommend. As a Con-Con, we would be an autonomous body. Lucero: Given the state of Sanggu right now, we shouldn’t keep centralizing everything. You’re incomplete, and that says a lot about what the constituency thinks of you. Plan as Con-Con is to use unorthodox consultation with sectors and the like. Upon analysis, Sanggu networks do not truly reach everyone. When COA sends an email, as an org member, there is already a culture of info dissemination. I think if you want to be successful, I think we have to have consultation and info dissemination as top priority. Ryan will post the draft. Yu: To clarify, the Constitution allows both Con-Comm and Con-Con as options. We’re trying to open up these lines so more can be heard and the plebiscite can get more traction.

Aldea: How will dissemination be discussed? Here or in IC? Lucero: Both. Will discuss methods, but also consult with you. I can’t force an org to help. Aldea: Our sectors will have their own initiatives. We can support you, but it won’t be top priority. Yu: Before anything is finalized, i want to make sure that the procedures are outlined, and that the CB is in agreement with it. Make sure that everything has been talked about. Aldea: Contingency? I will have to consult my sector as well. If they say no? Yu: By approving this, amendments are not restricted to come only from Con-Con. Lucero: Sectors aren’t only for amendments, but also info dissemination. Planning to tap political parties. Networking team will be screened to see if they’re well-networked in their groups. Mondok: Instead of me representing my constituents, you’ll consult them directly? Lucero: No. Will consult CB as well. Just want to make sure they get the message. If there are overlaps, it’s fine, as long as the message gets through. As long as they can’t say they didn’t know about it. Mondok: So you’re asking our permission to consult our constituents? Lucero: No. Same process as before. Just that Sanggu has no monopoly on what will happen. As Con-Con Head, I will weigh all the other groups as well. Yu: In the resolution, the CB reserves the right to change amendments by 2/3 vote. Lucero: There are safeguards. What I’m trying is an unorthodox way of consultation, and if it works, we can try it for others. Capitalize on working with orgs and networks. Yu: Tradeoff between perspective and consultation and reach versus Sanggu control. Trying to strike a balance. Mondok: I understand that we’re not very representative right now. I think we should have more consultation, but not worsen it. Thought you were saying we should remove the process altogether, but now I get it. Lucero: Will present next week.

IPR Violations Reyes: Proposing that the entire Sanggu adopt our SOH stand on artists’ rights, because we recognize that all schools have artists. Context is that we get a lot of complaints from constituents about their designs being altered without consent. Stand is a call for awareness that this happens. Gomez: Action points? Dimla: Stand calling for awareness. We want the institution to stand against violations of IPR. The Sanggu will release a stand, because this does not only affect designers, also writers, photographers etc. This will bring support. It’s not just organizations in school that outsource our students, but also external ones.

De Jesus: Examples? Dimla: There were issues about this in the summer. An artist submitted a design three weeks before deadline to allow for revisions. She didn’t get contacted, but the design was edited without permission, was even printed. Another case was when someone wanted to use a designer’s logo but couldn’t pay, so they were forcing it. Photographers have photos edited without consent; nakakabastos. When you deal with clients, you ask for specifics. Gomez: What can Sanggu do?
