Still Personal

You might be wondering if this site, blog, on-line journal or whatever we call this is an official web address of the Pag-ibig Citihomes Phase 2 Homeowners’ Association (PICHOA-2). Honestly, it is not. This is a personal blog of a person who happens to be a member of the current Board of Directors of PICHOA-2.

Being personal, however, does not mean we can’t discuss things, concerns, etc that affects directly or indirectly our subdivision and the people that dwell within it. Being personal does not prohibit us to publish documents that are official and public records i.e. Financial Reports, Board Resolutions, Policies, Rules and Regulations, Minutes of the Meeting that are adopted by the PICHOA-2.

PICHOA-2, particularly the people delegated to manage its businesses, which are the elected directors of the Association’s Board, should be bounded by the principle of prudence, transparency and accountability. It is one of their duties to rightfully and speedily inform the General Assembly (members of PICHOA-2) of any or of all developments, in whatever possible, convenient and cost-effective means.

The successes of PICHOA-2 do not solely rest on the resolves of the elected officials. Of course, they are expected to lead the organization in whatever undertakings the General Membership would desire. Members of PICHOA-2 are also expected to make good of their commitments for the organization and take part in all the programs presently being or would be implemented by the group.

During the days of the organization of PICHOA-2, we have dreamt of a coming up with a Newsletter for Phase 2 homeowners. This was some sort of a literary and news organ. The main purpose, actually, was to have a means for keeping the member-homeowners well-informed. Well-informed members are the greatest assets PICHOA-2 can ever have.

The idea remains but was not concretized due to financial constraints. We don’t have the money to sustain the circulation of the conceptualized PICHOA-2 paper. We can possible print the master copy but distribution expense is costly. Moreover, the P60.00 monthly dues are too meager to keep the PICHOA-2 floating. Allocating the publication and distribution expenses from this is not a good idea at all. Nonetheless, membership and association fees were collected by Johndorf Ventures Corporation (JVC) and were not yet remitted to PICHOA-2.

I personally thought having an on-line journal, where members of my community can share ideas, opinions, etc about the happenings in the community, would be wiser. I also thought that the Board can make use of the site to keep PICHOA-2 members abreast with the latest happenings without spending a single centavo. Hence, the birth of this site.

I would like to emphasize that there are NO promulgations or resolutions passed by PICHOA-2 Board or General Assembly adopting this site as the official on-line venue for PICHOA-2. Irregardless if this will be adopted or not, this will remain to exist for the very purpose of informing the public and make the Board accountable and transparent in all its dealings.


Finally a Home

Every person and entity should become accustomed to the fast changing world. New innovations on processes, systems, technologies are being developed daily. Those who can’t readily unjust to the rapid advances in different fields will be swept away by strong current of change or they be left behind wondering what hit them.

Many individuals had adapted fairly to the trends in various areas. Some even change their gadgets in the similar frequencies they change their underpants. Individuals forego their traditional diary and scrap book, they have blogs, personal websites, and facebook accounts, instead.

Businesses follow the technological advances. They now transact business both in the traditional channels and through the virtual sphere. Educational, charity, and non-profit organizations have found their way to the universe.

Whether we like or not, most of us are already wired to one another in this internet generation. And we find it more convenient to connect with our families, friends, colleagues, etc thru the web.

And since most of us, Phase 2 residents of Pag-ibig Citihomes, have accounts, have a link to www, it is just right that we will also have a common home in the web. I understand we already have a facebook group/page for that matter but it provides us with a little room for things we want to know about our community and our association.

It is on this intention that this blog was created to address some of our concerns, issues in our community. This will also serve as some sort of our community on-line publication. Currently, our Homeowners’ Association is not capable of providing our members with a monthly newsletter. We are still financially handicapped at the moment.

Anyways, welcome to our on-line gazette, our virtual home. Hope you keep visiting this site for more updates. You can also subscribe to this blog so you will be notified thru email about new post.
