NCA16 Organizing Committee Meeting Held in Cebu

Contributed by Arch. Rex Tamase, BS Architecture


In preparation for the forthcoming 16th National Conference of Architects to be held October 26-28, 2007 in Cebu, the Manila representatives of the organizing committee met with their Cebu counterparts on August 18 and 19.

The meetings were presided over by Arch. Roger Ong, Executive Director for Conventions and Conferences and Arch. Cathy Carunungan, NCA 16 Conference Director.

Arch. Curunungan gave an update on matters pertaining to the programs, while Architects Dondon de Guzman and Dennis Bernardo, Chairpersons for Programs and Planning presented the outline of activities.

Arch. Carunungan also recommended that the Fellowship Night be held at Tambuli Resort instead of Maribago Blue Water as it would be easier to transport the delegates, and the amenities at Tambuli are better than Maribago. The body accepted the recommendation.

After the adjournment of the August 18 meeting, Arch. Mitch Begonia, Chairperson for the NCA Olympiad, and the rest of the Manila group went to look for alternative venues where the Olympiad may be held, as City Sports Club may not accommodate all sports and participants. The venues visited were Metro Sports Club, Bowling Plex, and Racquet Zone.

On August 19, Arch. Roger Ong and the chairpersons of the various committees met with the representative of Waterfront Hotel to discuss operational and logistical concerns. The group also inspected the ballroom where the conference will be held, as well as the meeting room for the National Board of Directors meeting and areas for the registration and exhibit.

The other organizing committee members who attended the meetings were Architects Eldred Caesar Tan, Danilo Ravina, Winston Go, Janette Go, Gloria Anino, Julius Cabachete, Haidi Fajardo, Dannis Mayo, Noel Avila, Karl Cabilao, Lawrence Young, Clemente Guanzon, Jose Mari CaƱizares, Antonio Reynes, Jr., Sarah Abadia, Tony Valdez, Ching Roxas, Cres Chong, this writer, and Mr. Nicole Macalinao of the UAP Secretariat.
