We're Sorry
We’re sorry! Board Committees are now closed for the 2015-2016 school year. Please come back next year!

Board Committees

Samahang Pilipino Board Committees provide a space for general membership to immerse themselves in the operations that run Samahang Pilipino as an organization. Led by Samahang Pilipino board members, committees offer opportunities to develop as student-leaders, obtain practical skills, learn more about Pilipino history and culture, and meet new friends, all while making a significant impact on our Pilipinx community on and off campus. Through collaboration and teamwork, students will gain valuable experience in programming, facilitating, networking, and research.

Political Committee

This year, Political Committee will have the pleasure of working on the SCPASA Summit, the Campaign, a General Body Meeting and the Alumni Project.

PINAYS Collective

The focus of PINAYS Collective is two-fold: enjoyment and empowerment. PINAYS Collective will incorporate social events on and off campus as well as seek to empower our community of Pilipin@ womyn and allies through discussion and dialogue, womyn's-focused programming and workshops within UCLA with other social/ethnic organizations, and attending relevant events in the greater LA area. PINAYS Collective aims for awareness, intra- & inter-community growth. In other words, we seek to grow stronger bonds within the SP community between womyn and allies, and we seek to grow stronger bonds to other ethnic womyn's groups on campus.

Administrative Committee

Samahang Pilipino Administrative Committee (AdminCo) serves as the marketing and logistics hub for Samahang Pilipino. We work closely with every entity in Samahang in addition to Board, including: SPACE, SPEAR, and SPCN, as we are the ones responsible for promoting their events! On this committee, you will have the opportunity to creatively express yourself through graphic designing, newsletter writing, social media posting, website designing, and coming up with ideas for outreaching and spreading the word about Samahang! No prior experience necessary, just looking for people who are down to learn and help run this fun, familial organization of ours! But if you are tech-savvy and/or crafty with a camera, AdminCo would greatly appreciate & welcome your talents.
