The herculean task of planning Focus Bulacan's 2018 activities and making those plans reality falls on the shoulders of our 2018 officers. Being a Focus officer could be a stressful role at times due to the club's nonstop activities, and it takes a lot of commitment and sacrifice from our officers to lead and guide the group.
For 2018, our committees and officers are :
Officers : Erika Santos & Alih Viaje
The Membership Committee shall oversee the Club’s internal affairs regarding members and applicants. This shall include monitoring of members’ compliance with by-laws and membership requirements. Due to the steadily-increasing number of Focus members, starting this year there shall be two Membership Officers to better monitor and communicate with the members.
Officer : Kat Verzano
The Finance Committee shall safeguard and oversee the Club’s financial resources, with the power to collect membership dues and to execute purchases and payments deemed in accordance with the Club’s approved activities.
Officers : Amen Alcoriza / Awel Dionisio / Gerson Domingo / Chi Lopez / Elena Taeza / Pauline Villafuerte
The Logistics Committee shall oversee the Club’s programs and activities. This includes - but not limited to - planning, organizing, and supervising PhotoMeets, events, and other official activities.
Officer : Jer Sandel
PhotoWorld Cup Advisor : Joey Ramos
The Competition Committee shall oversee any and all contests or competition that the Club will undertake. This includes - but not limited to - establishing rules and guidelines for contests, organizing entries, recording results, and finding the best ways to determine winners.
Officer : Ejay Caluag
The Externals Committee shall be responsible for communication with other organizations and entities that the Club may have to work with for the Club’s interests.
Officers : Julius Calzo & Gilbert Fajardo
The Auxiliary Committee shall provide support for the Club's main events or projects, such as exhibits, annual parties, and other activities that are larger in scale compared to monthly PhotoMeets.
We have three new officers this year, all members of the Logistics Committee, namely : Awel Dionisio, Gerson Domingo, and Pauline Villafuerte. We thank them for accepting such big responsibilities in helping lead Focus Bulacan. Here's what they have to say about the task at hand :
I will do the best that I can as a new officer. Isang malaking karangalan po ang mapabilang at maglingkod bilang officer ng Focus Bulacan." - Awel Dionisio
It's my pleaure to serve this group of different individuals who have become my family. I will do my best to contribute to the success of our club. Together we eat, together we shoot!" - Gerson Domingo
I want to express my heartfelt gratitude as I accept the challenge as an officer for my family, Focus Bulacan. Being part of this family is more than a privilege, it is a responsibility that entails perseverance and hard work. This will always be one of the highlights of my life. Thank you, Focus Bulacan!" - Pauline Villafuerte
Thanks again to our new officers as well as our returning officers for taking on yet another year's challenge of steering Focus Bulacan to greater heights!
