Last January 23, Filcop members elected a new Management Committee who will be in office for the next two years.
On that day, which was also the first annual general meeting of the organisation, members voted to amend the constitution with regards to management. They agreed to hold biennial (every two years) elections for the management committee with each member being able to hold three consecutive terms for one office.
The 1st Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Filipino Community of Peterborough (Filcop) was held last 23 January 2011 at Stafford Hall in Westwood ward.
It has been a very busy first year for the organisation. Despite being new, they still managed to initiate many activities for its members and the wider Filipino community.
It was in 17 January of last year that some members of the Filipino community in Peterborough have gathered to realise their aspiration of formalising themselves into a community association.
