MINUTES APPROVALOF 04/18/13 AND 05/04/13 MINUTES Motion to approve both sets of minutes made by 2 SOSE CB, seconded by 4 SOM CB. Minutes unanimously approved. INTRODUCTION TO CON-CON Lucero: Just to inform you that Con-Con is happening. It's important. Project of OVP. Many changes since 2010. Most of the previous amendments have been approved by previous CBs, but since you are the government, giving the current admin the power. Lucero: Procedureupload the files, will have to be approved again. Start with old amendments, already been approved, but you can block them if you want. Once approved, will put up for public consultation. This will take longabout a month. Once the public approves, on queue for plebiscite. Once you've approved a provision, will start on new provisions. Lucero: Who can make new provisionswill be holding public consultations. Every week I will discuss at least one provision. You will all have to approve it first, then the public will approve it. Lucero: I will not tolerate people who have not read the provisions. Will upload early, at least four days before CB. Please read them. Especially the new provisions so they can be scheduled on time. We don't want meeting to be clarifications, petty grievances. Need to approve a lot. Lucero: We'll be working with CODE and they'll be presenting their own parallel consultation. I'll be consulting the majority of the sectors, CODE will be checking the quality of the revisions and suggestions. If a political party has a problem, I'll bring it up. If CODE thinks a provision is vague or useless, they will. Lucero: Don't have much time since we only have a year.

We are your sole autonomous student government. We voice out your concerns. We protect your welfare. We form the community. We are entrusted to lead and committed to serve. We are your SANGGUNIAN.

Lucero: ExampleI've been hearing problems about people who are ineligible to run because they're not Filipino citizens even if they're full-time students. Or big structure changesif a sector wants to remove EOs, you have to talk about it, because its a legitimate concern. Lucero: What we'll try is to make sure that every student has to vote. Example is when they passed the 2005 constitution, they integrated it into registration. So people would have to vote and they'd have to have to be informed. That's how important this is. Lucero: Will take at least 20 minutes per CB meeting. Real service to your constituency. Yu: Public consultations both before and after? o Lucero: Different levels. Public consultation-CODE will do the FGDs. We just have to dissem. And the sectors will have their say. The new provisions will be a space for revision. Public consultation is different from sector consultation, hopefully with the help of the networking team. Yu: To clarify, the new provision process includes sectoral consultation, and there will be new provisions raised in CB from there, then approve by the public? Lucero: After that, approve na for plebiscite. The public holds the ball, so we have to limit our time because we need to make space for the constituents. Yu: Have talked to Harvey Chua of Assembly, they're interested in partnering with us. Also trying to get GUIDON to cover. JGSOM SB PROJECT PRESENTATIONSOM SOPHOMORES PROM Poe: Addressing the CB formally rather than just relying on autonomy because we think you'd appreciate us doing that. Turning the floor over to Megan Chan and Iigo Acosta. Acosta: SOM Prom is a recently conceptualized event from consultation with the student body, dedicate to different SOM sophomores for training and project management, commemorate what the Sanggu has done the past year o Goals: 600 attendees, at least 50 non-Sanggu team members. o Points: Batch unity, student participation, giving what the students want.

Chan: One of our constituents posted something on FB as the impetus. Poe: Reminder: project that the sophomores want to pursue, the batch wants it to happen. Telling the CB because the question has been raised as to whether we can use the name of the Sanggunian. Nature of a prom is questionable as to whether its in line with Sanggu's goals, so presenting to show why it can be. Andujare: Clarifyobjective? You're asking us for some kind of project approval. o Poe: Asking for a go signal to use the Sanggu name. o Remo: My policy as president is to give full autonomy to School Boards for projects. To balance, the CB holds power of the purse and the Sanggu name. In the past, projects can carry on even without these, but it becomes more difficult. Elicao: FB postcontext? o Acosta: One of our reps posted the Kaye Bata blog post about how nobody cares about the Sanggunian. Chan: Survey on it, around 410 said yes. o Andujare: How many are you in the batch? Chan: Around 700. Acosta: 750 to 777. Gomez: More in-depth explanation? o Acosta: The idea was brought up last year. Didn't push through. This year when we were having our PlanSem as a batch, it came up again. How we got batch projectsfrom my and Rays platforms, asked the reps what they wanted, asked the reps to ask the batch what they wanted. Voted as a batch board, ended up with twelve projects, including this. Asked the batch if they really wanted it. o Chan: Formation and participation, specifically member recruitment. Heads are Sanggu, core will be non- Sanggu. Iigo Heads are 35% Sanggu, 65% non-Sanggu. Want to help people be more able to handle projects, help out in Sanggu work, be more inclusive. o Chan: Last point is batch unity, unite the batch so it's not divided into courses. Racines: Have you considered why were doing this given the other issues around? o Acosta: we're trying to address those and also do this prom.

Pam: How do you plan to incorporate Sanggu into the prom? o Acosta: Student Movement Integrationa lot of us are willing to help out. De Jesus: Are you only asking for the name, or will you ask for anything else? Finances? o Acosta: If we ask for money, it will be for the formation and training part, planning part. Yu: Do you really need the Sanggu name? Context: I'm core team of ME Soph Night. Not officially a MEA project, but organized by members. Not in core competency of MEA to hold a Soph Night. I can propose a similar structure for you guys. I don't think Sanggu's name will get you many more sponsors than being Ateneans with a batch-wide event. Andujare: Imagine your government throwing a party for Ateneans lang. What is the picture for people not part of the party? Is this the most effective way to unite the batch? I don't think the prom is the only answer to this batch unity issue. Parang ang extravagant niya. What are you teaching the students? Formation? Project management? You can learn even in your classroom. Cruz: First survey we conducted was in November, back when we were still freshmen. We were having a hard time getting the batch to attend projects. We did the survey to see what they actually thought, and we were surprised with their overwhelming support. Comments and answers were overwhelming. Maybe the batch really wants this and we want to use the project to get them to be part of it, invest in it. Want you to be part of the process of creating it. Midpoint of our college lifeeven though its fifty people, they'll see that you can have regular people not in Sanggu working for the batch, giving their time and effort. Maybe we hope that they realize in the next two years that they should actually start investing more, it's not too late. o Chan: Invitation to step up. Acosta: As to why Sanggu, it's bigger than the MEA context. As for the government example: with Sangguniang Kabataan, they hold culminating events like this. Yutuc: Main points are good, we did that last year. Maybe it's better that since we're Sanggu, our nature isn't party. Improve by collaborating with other batches or schools? The ideas are good, like with SOAR last year, just not a huge prom.

Yu: My biggest issue is that I'm not sure if its addressing a need. Based on what you've said, there's a desire for it, but based on the things that you've mentioned, these can be addressed in other ways more aligned to e student government. Wanting doesn't mean commitment. For MEA Soph Night, andaming nag-yes, but less came. Motion to extend for ten minutes by FO, seconded by 2 SOM CB. Objection by VP. o Yu: Seven minutes na lang. o Motion withdrawn. Motion to extend for seven minutes by VP, seconded by 2 SOM CB. Objection by 3 SOH CB. o Reyes: We're going around in circles. They're saying that the point is in formation. o Vote on whether to extend: YES 5 NO 4 Vice-President Finance Officer Secretary-General 3 SOH CB Rep 2 SOM CB Rep 3 SOM CB Rep 2 SOSE CB Rep 4 SOM CB Rep President (due to tie) o Motion approved. Poe: Purpose of this presentationrequest for approval of the CB for a task force under the sophomore BCA for the execution of this project. Andujare: Point of clarification. What do you really want to achieve in this meeting? o Poe: Earlier I said we wanted a go signal. Only way to get this is if we make it a Sanggunian-endorsed project, which we can get under 2 BCA. Remo: Request a caucus. Motion for five-minute caucus by 2 SOM CB, seconded by VP. Motion approved unanimously. <Caucus; discussion. Session resumes at 7:02pm.>

Remo: As your president, it's my belief that you can do whatever projects you deem fit. But Ryan is rightif we do this, we set precedent that Sanggu can create projects like this. Don't necessarily mean that's a bad thing. Other student governments do this. Justify to the CB. Take the VPs advice that you don't necessarily need the Sanggunian name. It can be implied because you're the Exec. These concerns have been brought up before. If you wish to make it a batch project, you can do it under BCA. Just a head's up, will be noted in the minutes. You can go ahead. Details later. GABAY HALALAN Remo: Request for a change of presidership? Motion to change presidership to VP by Sec-Gen, seconded by 2 SOM CB Rep. Motion approved unanimously. Remo: Elections are on Monday. Couple of announcements from ATF. Remo: May 13 is a holiday because its assumed that you'll be voting. We have activities that we encourage you to attend. PPRCV looking for poll-watchers. On May 15, PPCRV in partnership with Ateneo, ATF, and Sanggu is doing a parallel count. We live in an automated election system, so after you vote, your vote will get recorded, and at the end of the process, your vote gets remitted to a central system. But we need to verify whether these are accurate, so we need 200 volunteers. Remo: Two shifts: 6am to 3pm and 1pm to 10pm. Food, transpo, shirt. Official LS event: your professors will get an official memo from ADAA asking them to extend the common courtesy going to people who represent the school at these events. Remo: Sign-ups close Monday because we need to give the list on Monday. Begging all of you to please sign up for this event, so we need people to help with this. Remo: Need three Sanggu officers per shift on May 15 to be part of the organizing committee. Bring in your friends, barkada, bring in everyone. <Volunteers for second shift: Juno Reyes, Tin Andujare. None yet for first shift.>

Copuyoc: For Sanggu officers, wear your Sanggu shirts. For visibility and awareness. Remo: We need to get Sanggu officers out there. We need to get the idea of nationbuilding out there. Transpo and everything will be provided, but we need to fill the list by Monday Gomez: Can ADAA move my long test? o Remo: Not sure, clear with your professor. o Andujare: Your names will be forwarded to your profs, but you will have to be responsible for whatever you miss. Motion to extend five minutes by President, seconded by 2 SOM CB. Motion approved unanimously. Copuyoc: Tell your profs early and also sign up. It's not immediate that your prof will get a private letter, but ADAA will have a memo with your name that you can give specifically to your teacher. Remo: Memo coming out tomorrow. By Tuesday, we hope to finalize and for ADAA to release the official list. If you do decide to come, you have to sign up. The go-ahead from ADAA is not retroactive. We will check attendance to verify if you were there. There is a dress code: happening in Pope Pius Center in Intramuros. Valid ID, jeans, blue or white shirt, closed shoes. Do not bring expensive electronics, no cameras. o Copuyoc: High-security area. Remo: Not requiring Sanggu officers, but highly encouraging. Ramirez: Meet here at 6? o Remo: Yes, that's assembly time. o Copuyoc: But shifts end at 3, so transpo time going back isn't factoring that in yet. Motion to change presidership to President by President, seconded by 3 SOH CB. Motion approved unanimously.
