The current batch of student leaders and the incoming officers of different clubs in the university gathered together and culminated the Campus Clubs and Organizations (CCO) Summit 2017 last March 10 and 11 at Martin Hall and F213, respectively.
According to incumbent CCO Chairperson Khryzza Mae Pinzon, the event aimed to honor the most outstanding clubs of the year and to train students with regard to their duties and responsibilities as the next club officers.
“The event wants to achieve two things. First, we want to give recognition to the clubs, especially those who really excelled on their different projects. Second, we want to train the incoming club officers,” she expressed.
Furthermore, Pinzon explained the schedule of the summit in the interview.
“It’s a two-day event. [March 10] was the awarding of the project of the year of different clusters. It’s also an oath-taking and turnover ceremony for incoming and outgoing club presidents. Andun din yung state of the CCO address, a report kung anong ginawa ng CCO for the whole year,” she relayed.
The second part of the summit was dedicated for the leadership training of the incoming club officers.
“[March 11], may leadership training for incoming club presidents, vice-presidents, secretary generals, and treasurers para next year at least kabalo na sila unsaon paghimog annual reports and concept papers etc,” she said.
Most Outstanding Clubs
During the first day of the summit, the CCO executive board members awarded the most outstanding clubs of the year per cluster. Pinzon stated that the clubs were chosen based on the projects they organized.
