Bacolod City Chapter
Status Report/Updates
After the initial meeting last July, the Bacolod Chapter reconvened last August 7, 2010 at the Bishop’s House and one of the main agenda of the meeting was the inclusion of the priests in the organization.

It was decided by the body that a member can be an individual or a representative of a company or organization.

The three major committees were created, namely:
Social Justice
Circle of Discernment & Action Group
Spiritual Development
For Social Justice, technical assistance can be extended for the projects of the Social Action Center (SAC); As Caritas Bacolod’s engagement in putting up Balay Dalayunan – a temporary shelter for mendicants and Caritas Bodega – in preparation for any untoward calamities, BPBC could help in laying down the policies.
It was mentioned that there is a need for identification of the basic needs of the poorest of the poor and to identify how to help on short/medium/long term basis.
Social Justice should include Employment Opportunities, Removal of Economic Inequalities and Human Dignity.
The current Good Governance Desk of the Social Action Center conducted a Procurement Training Seminar for potential BAC observers last August 14, 2010 which the BPBC subsidized.
As of the present the Chapter is in the process of constructing its own Constitution and By-Laws. The groundwork of the organization should be laid down first so prospective member can have the proper information regarding the group.
