THE SILVERSCREEN: FROM THE SECRETARIAT’S POV

Finally! Last October 10, 2009, we were able to stage the Silverscreen: Showcasing 25 Years of Organizational Communication. It was held at the Angelo King International Center (CSB Hotel).

Girls of OrCom Class 2010

I was the Secretariat Head for the event. And as much as I would not want to rant in this post (I shall reserve the ranting in my personal blog), let me just say that it was not an easy job. There, I said it. And that will be the last of it. Don’t worry 😛

The Organizational Communication program has reached it’s 25th year. As much as possible, I wanted as many OrCom alumni and faculty to be a part of this memorable celebration. That would be a total of 21 classes (Class 1988 to 2009). The planning and execution of the event was made a class project for our Debate and Argumentation class. Each student was required to invite at least two alumni.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my wonderful Secretariat Committee–Nancy Ortega, Jona Atienza, Ayessa Parayno, Robert Osorio, Grace Gaddi, Arven Eusebio, Tahmee Ruiz, JP Cosio, and Kamil Binuya. It was thru the efforts of this committee and of Class 2010 as a whole that we were able to come up with an updated OrCom directory.

Unfortunately, even if we were able to invite as many alumni as possible, strong forces such as Typhoon Ondoy and Typhoon Pepeng were just too much to handle. And their landfall happened to be exactly the same date as the homecoming. From an estimated count of 150+ expected attendees, only 117 of which were able to attend.

It was actually a bit depressing, but it was not a bad number at all, considering the events that had occurred. Thank you for all those who attended.

The Silverscreen was made extra memorable because we were able to generate a total of 20,000 PhP that will be used to buy goods for Ondoy and Pepeng victims. Those who failed to attend and had their advanced payments already agreed to donate the amount. So actually, despite their absence in the event, they were still able to contribute to the special cause along with the staging of this memorable event.

Happy 25th Anniversary to the Organizational Communication program and to the entire OrCommunity!
