Besao women’s group members called to attend GA, Nov 10
by Jane B. Cadalig

The lone surviving incorporator of a women’s group from Besao, Mountain Province is calling members to attend the club’s general assembly on Nov. 10 at the University of Baguio.

Louisa Cuangey, the only remaining original incorporator of the Besao Bangan (Women) Club, Inc., called on members to take part in the general assembly, which will also be the election of the new set of officers and board of trustees/directors. The meeting will be at 1 p.m. at the UB Hall.

She said members who are currently overseas may send their representatives to vote on their behalf.

Established in 1997 by women elders in Besao, the club has 477 members, including those residing abroad.

Cuangey said the election of set of officers will help address the issues hounding the organization.

She said the current set of officers has not been processing the annual registration of the club with the Securities and Exchange Commission and its tax exemption with the Bureau of Internal Revenue.

A dialysis patient for two years now, Cuangey said she has been processing the papers of the club, which nearly lost its privileges as a juridical entity after its registration with the SEC was placed as a candidate for revocation.

“They were remiss in their duties. I was the one who processed the papers so that the club’s SEC registration will not be revoked,” she said, adding the incumbent officers must pay for the penalties, which reached P36,500.

Cuangey also said the club must never be used for political or for personal motives.

“Besao Bangan should not be used in politics. If there are solicitations using the name of the club, every contribution must be documented and reported to the members,” she said.

Cuangey added the current set of officers must report on the status of the funds, which were raised several years ago.

In 2001, Cuangey said the group held a popularity contest in which they raised P50,000 and another in 2003 in which the club raised P200,000.

In their letters to the City Social Welfare and Development Office seeking permit for the fund raising, the club said proceeds will be used to purchase a lot for the construction of a multi-purpose building that was supposed to serve as a venue for meetings, socialization, and other related activities; a meeting place for the youth; serve as a venue for wakes for families who cannot afford the services of funeral parlors; and serve as a relocation for families who were hit by calamities, among other purposes.

Cuangey said the amount turned over to the current club officers reached P800,000, but which, as they were informed, has reached P1.1 million.
