FIND, Inc. Announces Member Schools Eligible For Fall Dialogue 2019 Pre-Registration

New York, NY (October 11, 2019) --

FIND, Inc. and 2019 Dialogue Planning Board would like to address a concern regarding this year’s Dialogue pre-registration fees. When registering for Dialogue, there will be a pre-registration period for member schools and non-member schools. For those unable to pre-register during the pre-registration period, there will be on-site registration for member and non-member schools. The respective fees will be:

  1. Pre-Registration Fees

    • Member Schools: $20

    • Non-Member Schools: $25

  2. On-Site Registration Fees

    • Member Schools: $25

    • Non-Member Schools: $30

Member schools eligible to pay the member school fee will be based off the 2018-2019 membership drive. This means if a school paid dues last year, then they are eligible for the member school rate.

However, there are three classifications of schools that will need to contact their District’s National Director(s), who will forward the information to the National Board. These three classifications are as follows:

  1. Schools who paid membership dues last year, but did not pay dues for the 2019-2020 academic year.

  2. Schools who did not pay dues last year, but pay dues for the 2019-2020 school year.

FIND, Inc. Announces 2019-2020 Membership Packet, Form & Dues

Jersey City, NJ (October 9, 2019) --

FIND, Inc. National Board has created a membership packet and updated the membership form for the 2019-2020 term. Due to feedback and concerns raised by student leaders in our network, the membership dues have decreased from $50 to $30 for the 2019-2020 school year. Proceeds are divided where $24 will go to FIND, Inc. and $6 will be contributed to the districts. This change is not permanent, as changes to the annual dues will be determined by the future National Board’s discretion.

The membership packet contains useful information about our organization, most recent programming and how to join our network.

There will be three phases in the process of collecting membership dues this term:

  1. Phase I: $30 dues to be collected [10/6 - 10/26]

  2. Phase II: Membership stats, organization contacts & database submissions [10/12 - 11/8]

  3. Phase III: Sister School form collection [10/17 - 11/8]

This year, National Board would like to introduce the Sister School Program. The purpose of this incentive is to connect multiple schools across different districts with each other to provide a platform to share ideas, culture, merchandise, and encourage productive conversations. More information on how to participate in this program will be released soon.

We are NOW collecting dues beginning with Phase I. We ask that all schools applying fill out the membership google form and submit the membership dues to your district treasurer by October 26th, 2019. For more information, please refer to the membership packet.

The membership packet and form can be found on the FIND, Inc. website at: http://www.findinc.org/membershipapplication.

FIND, Inc. Announces 2019 Fall Dialogue Date and Venue

Troy, NY (September 15, 2019) --

The Filipino Intercollegiate Networking Dialogue, Incorporated (FIND, Inc.) is proud to announce that this year’s Fall Dialogue will be held on Saturday, November 23rd, 2019. The event will take place at the Montclair State University, hosted by District III, District IV, and MUFASA.

District III, more commonly referred to as “D3”, encompasses schools within the metropolitan area of New York City, northern New Jersey, and Long Island. Of the eight existing districts, D3 consists of 25 member schools making it the district with the most member schools. D3 is comprised of individuals who strive to maintain the importance of good communication and unity. The district has  grown significantly throughout the years and holds several collaborative district events annually. The member schools of D3 come together and compete in fall district events such as, NYU’s “Mr. Philippines” pageant, NJIT’s “Reign or Shine” Dance Competition, and more! This year, we are proud to announce that the 2019 Fall Dialogue will be added in the fall timeline of events. D3 looks to provide a channel for dialogue and action, promoting to preserve our culture, while enhancing the awareness of issues in the Filipino community through the network of schools within the district.

Montclair State University is a 4 year college that is located in Little Falls, New Jersey. It is the 3rd largest campus in the state of New Jersey. Montclair offers more than 250 majors, minors, and concentrations and has over 150 clubs and organizations. You can even pursue and satisfy other interests and hobbies you may have outside of your major. One of the organizations on campus, Montclair Unified Filipino American Student Association is a class one organization of the Student Government Association. MUFASA was founded in Spring 2013 which started off as a small club however their general body members has exponentially grown since then.  MSU strives and emphasizes student involvement on campus whether it being student run organizations, Greek Life, or career services on campus.

District IV (D4) is located in Upstate New York and encompasses 5 schools in the state: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, University at Albany, Binghamton University, University at Buffalo, and Syracuse University.  The District is currently in its 4th year of re-establishment as prior to the 2015-2016 academic year, the District was considered defunct. Since then, the District has experienced periods of both strife and success. Leaders have both stepped down as well as risen to the challenge of leading the District towards a stable future. One of the challenges of operating within this District is the connecting the member schools over the vast distances between them, but we believe that hosting something as important as Fall Dialogue will serve to strengthen the ties that exist between the member schools and help to further reestablish the District and cement it as an organization that is dedicated to helping and serving its member schools.

The unique opportunity to have a collaboration between Districts III and IV exemplifies our mission to connect our schools across the eastern coast of the United States.

FIND, Inc. Announces 2019 Fall Dialogue Theme, Logo, and Date

Troy, NY (August 28, 2019) --

The District IV Dialogue 2019 Planning Board and FIND, Inc. are proud to present the theme of this year’s Fall Dialogue, which will be held on Saturday, November 23, 2019: “Barangay: Fostering Community,” as well as its logo.

Barangay is the Filipino term for “neighborhood.” This year, delegates will be asked to focus on their community and how the people and places that surround them are crucial in contributing to one’s development, one’s self, and moreover, one’s survival. The individuals that make up a community are just as important as the community as a whole is to each individual. FIND, Inc. challenges delegates to be mindful of who or what they consider their communities, what connects these communities together, and the overall importance of the community that we surround ourselves with.

The Barangay logo presents an archway that is a common landmark which welcomes people into the barangays scattered all across the Philippines. Each archway is unique to each barangay, and gives a snapshot into the personality of the community and the people that it comprises. Behind the archway are colorful silhouettes of the buildings and homes of the barangay, with their signature eclectic colors and corrugated roofs. The environment of the barangays themselves breathe just as much life into the community as the people who live in it.
