The PCAAE General Council of Members, the highest organ of the association, met for its 3rd General Council of Members Meeting (GCMM) on December 4, 2015 at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) in the second afternoon of the 3rd Association Executives Summit (see separate story). PCAAE Chair, Cora Conde, presided the meeting which covered the approval of the minutes of the last GCMM held on November 20, 2014 also at the PICC as well as the report of the President & CEO on the accomplishments during the period, the financial condition and the work plan for 2016.
The GCMM also approved and ratified the change of name of PCAAE to the Philippine Council of Associations and Association Executives. This strategic name change at this early stage of PCAAE’s growth is in response to the realities of the structure and dynamics of associations here in the country as well as to the emerging trends in our counterparts around the world. This will afford PCAAE to recruit more members not only from present corps of association executives but also from association board members, staff and those who would like to build a career as an association professional.
PCAAE is currently in the process of effecting this change in all its documentary and registration requirements.
