Last January 12, 2017 (Thursday), the presidents of the member institutions of the University Athletics Association of the Philippines (UAAP) met in the host University, the University of Santo Tomas, to discuss the re-organization of the association.
In an interview with the UST Rector, the Very Rev. Fr. Herminio V. Dagohoy, O.P., PhD, he said that the group “approved in principle the re-organization of the UAAP.” Such entails that the Presidents/Rectors will become the members of the Board of Trustees, while the present members will comprise the Board of Managing Directors, which will manage and supervise the UAAP events, like games, among other things.
To be created under the proposed change are “risk and audit committees, which will be under the Board of Trustees.” Meanwhile, other working committees similar to existing committees will be created and placed under the supervision of the board of managing directors.
The proposed amendments to the Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws will be submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission for approval, and are eyed for implementation in time for the opening of the 80th season of UAAP later in 2017.
