As we welcome a new year, it's also time for Focus Bulacan officers to renew or reconsider their commitment to leading the club. Just as it happens every January, we see some officers step down and pass the torch to a group of young blood. This year is no exception. Before we introduce our new officers, let us look back at the 2020 roster of club leaders.
2020 was a difficult year for everyone and we salute our officers for doing what they could to continue Focus activities throughout the year. As we open a new chapter in 2021, we would like to recognize outgoing officers, who for years have strived to help manage the group. THANK YOU for your time, generosity, and effort.
Here are Focus Bulacan's officers for this calendar year :
2021 Finance Officer : JUVY SANTIAGO
Our finance officer Juvy Santiago returns for another year of handling club funds and expenses. This is now her second year in the position.
We have a new officer in charge of overseeing the club's external affairs and communication. Welcome to the team and thank you, Sir Gilbert Macapagal.
We also have someone new to call the shots in our 2021 Competition. Jovit Caballero is now our Competition Officer after having previously served as Event Logistics Officer.
We had a reshuffling in the Membership Committee. Ralph Derrick "Chi" Lopez has moved from the Logistics Committee to head the Membership Committee. Mark Simon and Lee Baleva continue their stint as Membership Officers, while we have a new officer in Troy Benito who will represent Batch 2020 and onwards.
Focus 2018-19 Competition Officer Jing Calonge has crossed over and will now help oversee the club's event logistics along with Rachele Lacson, who is on her second year in the post.
Ry Jacinto will now head the PhotoMeet Logistics group, along with fellow senior officer Shauang Bote. To inject new ideas into our photomeet planning, we have incoming fresh officers in Omac Principio and John Denry Salazar.
Once again, we'd like to offer our thanks and salute to these officers who accepted the responsibility of leading Focus Bulacan into what promises to be a bounce back year. All the best as we navigate 2021 together!
We're a camera club. We're a family. We're a team. We're a support group. We're a community. However you see and whatever you'd like to label us... welcome to Focus Bulacan, Batch 16!
Congratulations and we hope to see you continue your journey in photography. Let's shoot soon!
Every month, we have a feature on our members, our photography idols, and other photography issues we feel deserve a heads-up.
