TRF Seminar on Future Vision Plan and Global Grants

Here are the photos that I took during the seminar on "Transitioning to the Future Vision Plan" last June 09, 2012, held at the Session Hall, 22/F, Makati City Hall. The event was sponsored by the RC Makati Poblacion. It was the first time that I entered the session hall of Makati CH.

I think about 70 people attended that afternoon, including speakers and past District Governors of D3830 like Jimmy Cura, Guiller Tumangan and Ed Alvarez. Of course incoming District Governor Sue Sta. Maria was there.

The first speaker who spoke about the Global Grants was D3810 Immediate Past District Governor (IPDG) Tranquil S. Salvador III, a young and articulate guy. Well, I would say that almost all District Governors, past, present and future, are articulate.

Upper right photo below, he was given a plaque of appreciation by PDG Guiller Tumangan and DGE Sue Sta. Maria. PDG Guiller was also the second speaker, he briefly spoke about The Rotary Foundation (TRF) policies and programs, and preparing for Matching Grant (MG) application. The third speaker was D3810 PDG Josefina Ang, lower right photo. Another articulate speaker.

Nice venue, attentive participants.

Below, more photos with D3810's PDG Josefina Ang, between PDG Guiller and DGE Sue. The activity started around 1:15pm and ended around 5:45pm, covered all the agenda. About one-fourth or one-third of the participants left before the official closing.

Among my classmates in RY 2006-07 who attended that afternoon were Rose Acoba, Jay Tambunting, Rene Co, Techie Cruz, Julie Rabe, hmmm, did I forget someone.

I really enjoyed that seminar, I learned many things. One of the good things at being a Rotarian, learning more things at minimum cost. Seminar fee was only P400 including heavy afternoon snacks. I liked the food prepared by the host club, thanks RC Makati Poblacion.
