HISTORY

The new Rotaract Club of Cavite Export Processing Zone-West (RAC CEPZ-West) was conceived by Star President Gabe Trias of the Rotary Club of Cavite Export Processing Zone (RC CEPZ) during his term in RY 2003-2004. It was first planned to organize this new club for anyone from ages 18-31 who would seek membership to the old Rotaract Club of Cavite Export Processing Zone (RAC CEPZ) who are not employed in any company from within Cavite Economic Zone. Those who are employed will be referred to RAC CEPZ. Due to lack of interest from employees inside the zone, the plan was scrapped.

During the later part of the year, students from San Sebastian College-Recoletos in Cavite City led by President-Elect of RAC CEPZ expressed interest in forming a new Rotaract club at their school. President Gabe Trias suggested that the club be community based as earlier planned. To avoid conflict between their school, RAC CEPZ-West was re-introduced and was accepted wholeheartedly by the new prospective members wherein its constitution shall include a requirement to be accepted in the club is that he/she must be a student from schools west of Cavite Economic Zone accredited by the sponsoring club - Rotary Club of Cavite Export Processing Zone. Non-students will be referred to the other club - RAC CEPZ.

An organizational meeting was held on March 17, 2004 to start the formation of the new club. Present during the meeting were: RC CEPZ Star President Gabe Trias, RC CEPZ Past President Maeng Mercado, RC CEPZ Incoming Youth Service Director Dong Lee, RAC CEPZ President-Elect JayR Anda, Laarni Datu Marquez, Ma. Soledad C. Tinio, John Canaba Torres, Lourdes Sarah Bautista Taduran, Anatholy Tagade Gaudiel, Nelson R. Panopio, Michael Aprao Mendoza, Sherwin Mark Maraņa Miranda, Augusto Solis Barzaga and Aprilyn Mortega Basa.

On April 28, 2004, Star President Gabe Trias officially filed to Rotary International the organization of the new Rotaract Club of Cavite Export Processing Zone-West. As of this writing, the sponsoring club is still awaiting for the official charter of the new club.
