On June 16, 2008 (Monday), 5:33 pm, the Archaeological
Society (Archaeo-Soc) held a short meeting to hold an election. Attendance was
taken, with a total of 17 members attending (see below). Jane Carlos opened the
meeting by summarizing the decisions made during the November 23, 2007 meeting,
in which committees were proposed instead of the usual hierarchy of president,
etc. (Please see the previous meeting�s minute�s for justifications for this
decision.) Because there were no comments and criticisms during the 7 months
that Archaeo-Soc did not meet, it was assumed that there are no reactions on
this decision. It should be noted that there were some officers of Archaeo-Soc
2004-2005 present in the meeting and they approved of the move.
Michelle Eusebio informed the people present that she is in
the process of compiling the history of Archaeo-Soc and that she has placed the
past papers and documents in one area. She also said that the Archaeo-Soc has a
remaining balance of PhP 602.00 (six-hundred two pesos only). This can be used
as funds for future activities.
After this, elections for new officers were elected. Jane
Carlos and Michelle Eusebio presided over the elections. Everyone agreed that
even people who are not present in the current meeting could be elected,
although they will not be counted in the voting. The election proceeded as
follows, with the number of votes:
Anna Pineda - 8
Nan de la Paz - 3
Tara Reyes - 0
Edwin Valientes - 7
Internal Committee Head:
Taj Vitales - 14
* Voting for Internal Committee Head was closed once Taj Vitales was nominated.
External Committee Head:
Tara Reyes - 9
Nan de la Paz - 7
Finance Committee Head:
Iza Campos - 3
Nan de la Paz - 10
Each head of the committees will take care of finding
members for their committees, or people who are interested to join a particular
committee can contact the appointed leaders. This will be discussed further in
After the elections, Anna Pineda took over briefly to give
an overview of the possible activities that Archaeo-Soc can do. Although these
were suggested by Tara Reyes outside the meeting, some of the activities she
- an academic activity, such as a lecture by a professor invited by Archaeo-Soc;
- a semi-academic activity, one of the suggestions being a film marathon of a popular archaeological film
- an outreach program, possibly a modified Sandbox.
Michelle Eusebio pointed out that there ought to be an Archaeo-Soc mailing list, wherein the members may be reached through email. She added that Emil Robles, previously the moderator of the Archaeo-Soc mailing list, can be requested to give the details outside the meeting.
The present members of the meeting were encouraged to disseminate the information to other absent members and to also give their ideas. This can be done outside the meeting, or by contacting any of the committee heads. The meeting ended at 6:10pm.
