Unfinished Business

Mr Meneses presented the updates regarding the implementation of this idea. He also discussed

Mr Neri announced the dates of the photo shoot for the booklet that will happen on May 11 and
13 at 2-5pm in front of the CSG office. He also suggested that the sponsors should be updated for
them to be featured in the Info Digest. The distribution of this booklet will be during the ORSEM
College Assembly. Mr Neri also asked the help of the Corporate Relations Committee headed by
its Director, Ms Kris Pauline Young. Ms Young was to coordinate with the Info Digest Team
regarding its sponsorships. Ms Young asked Mr Neri if the package of the Info Digest is separate
from the general package of the CSG’s list of activities and Mr Neri affirmed its difference.
Departments/Special Committee Reports
 AFARM XU-CSG Task Force
Mr Laborte presented the recent updates of the movement and discussed about the tasks and
designations. He also presented the AFARM calendar of activities. He mentioned that the Task
Force had changed its internal management. Ms Rotchanne Quiblat, OVP Chief of Staff, is tasked
to Chair the Task Force in place of Mr Jean Marlo Sepe, XU Ambassador to Buklod Atenista, due
to the latter’s unavailability. Below is the calendar of activities of the Task Force with the
corresponding inclusive dates of implementation and units involved:


 Corporate Relations Committee
Ms Young discussed that their committee is still waiting for the GPOA and that their list of
volunteers is already complete. She also added that their communication letters are to be sent this
week to update sponsors and other concerns. A list of sponsors is to be separated for the info
digest. Ms Alolor also included some entities/establishments in the list of prospect sponsors. Mr
Laborte reminded Ms Young that the prospect sponsors must not be limited only to business-
centered units/establishments but also include some government-related or non-business units to
cater to sponsorships related to the latter’s nature (e.g. DOST to sponsor Research Grant Initiative
of DACA).

 Department of Internal Administration
Mr Mapano discussed that the office revamp is currently on hold, but the project proposal is
already prepared as well as the budget. He also announced the price of the T-Shirt, Lanyard and
ID which was not yet final but is estimated to be not more than 400php. The payment for these is
to be collected on May 16, 2014. He also reminded the body about the BOLTS at Mapawa Nature
Park this coming May 16-18, 2014 and added that there should only be 5 members per
department to join. The letter and confirmation form deadline is on May 14, 2014.

New Business
 Internal CSG Recruitment
Due to the request of some executive departments, Mr Laborte approved the recruitment process
of internal volunteers for some executive departments and that the Department of
Communications Management to be in-charge of promoting the internal CSG recruitment.
However, it is to be noted that during the orientation of the CSG executive branch and the first
Cabinet meeting, Mr Laborte reiterated that CSG must not be “loud” when it comes to its
promotion that it is hiring internal volunteers because Mr Laborte is directing the government in
aiming to empower recruitments of the local government units, the College Councils.
 Enrollment Planning
Mr Corbeta announced to the body that there is a need of volunteers for the enrolment of the
school year 2014-2015, 1
st
semester. He also presented the plans they have made in their
department. The body then suggested that a request letter should be sent to the communications
office for the borrowing of TV sets to entertain the students while waiting for their SLMIS to be
reactivated. Also, the department will be implementing a new system for the Registrar’s Waiting
Area. The enrolment volunteers and OrSem Volunteers are given a benefit of having a fast lane
enrolment but should have authentic identification. The department is to coordinate with the
local governments’ equivalent departments when it comes to centralizing the system.
 ORSEM preparations
Ms Alolor presented the current plans for the ORSEM preparation and announced to the body
the need of volunteers for the Talent Expo. It was also agreed that the officers in charge of the
CSG Booth during the org trip will be Mr Ruffy Mapano (DIA Secretary) and Ms Anna Tecson
(Cabinet Secretary).
 OYC Adopt a School NAT Program
Mr Laborte discussed the initiative of the Oro Youth Development Council named Adopt a
School NAT Program and informed the body the goal of the project: to help increase the scores of
the NAT test results of the bottom 3 private and public elementary and high schools in the city.
He also informed the body that the project will be lobbied to the Teacher’s Guild and the School
of Education for the nature of its work. However, the CSG-DSI is assigned to monitor on the
project and to give any support to the units involved. Support might come in financial or human
resources depending on the former’s request.
 Intramurals Committee Composition

Mr Laborted informed the body that the upcoming Intramurals will be having a new “face.” He
shared to the body that as a Jesuit Institution who exemplifies holistic approach in forming its
students, the CSG should gear to activities that will support in creating events that will result to a
holistic output. The university traditional event, Intramurals, had always been known to many as
an event that encourage the spirit of teamwork and fair competition. But it is to be noted that the
Intramurals focuses only on the sports category. With this, Mr Laborte introduced a proposal that
might change the “face” of the traditional event. He said that in his proposal the things to expect
in the upcoming intramurals, once approved: (1) Holistic categories namely sports, literary and
academic-related, and arts (sing & dance) – related competitions; (2) student-led committees; (3)
Faculty/University Office coordination with the student-led committees and a (4) centralized
local representation in the different committees involved in the actualization of the Intramurals.
Mr Laborte then enumerated the working committees of the upcoming Intramurals, namely;
Steering Committee, Secretariat Committee, Budget and Finance Committee, Corporate Relations
Committee, Sports Committee, Arts Committee (Sing & Dance), Literary and Academics
Committee, Special Events Committee, Tabulation and Awards Committee, Grievance
Committee, Documentation Committee, Marketing and Promotions Committee, Security and
Order Committee, Food and Volunteer Support Committee, Health Service Committee and
Evaluation Committee. With the enumeration is the assigned student to lead the committee and
the equivalent university office coordinator of the committee. Yet, Mr Laborte reminded the body
that this system is a proposal and to be relayed yet to the university offices involved in the
intramurals for further comments and discussions.
 “Sustainability” Committee Discussion
Mr Laborte discussed to the body the purpose of this discussion and assigned Mr Abapo,
Secretary for Research and Statistics, to be the committee’s chairperson.
