The General Assembly for the Humanist Alliance Philippines International is upcoming at a select venue in order to convene humanists within the Philippines in one place. In spite of the scattered nature of the island distribution of the Philippines, this will be an event to bring them together in one place in order to work for humanism and humanist ideals within the Philippines, which is predominantly religion in general and Roman Catholic Christian in particular.

The discussions at the HAPI General Assembly will be on the short-term and the long-term goals on the organizations in addition to the future activities and events that can improve the livelihood of HAPI and its membership in the Philippines.

It will occur in Bacolod City, Philippines coinciding with the Masskara Festival in October, 2018. The slogan is “The Road Ahead,” which is the HAPI orientation of building the future of humanism in the Philippines.

The speakers will include important members of the humanist community with the Philippines including Alvin John Ballares the Executive Director of HAPI, Dwengster Bulalac the Chief Financial Officer for HAPI, Michael Sherman the Assistant Chairperson, Andy Uyboco a guest speaker, Alain Presillas a member of the BOT of HAPI, and Jan Erik Villa who is on the BOT of HAPI and is the Project Director.

The host of the event will be the HAPI Bacolod Chapter, which is “one of the most active and balanced chapters in the Philippine.” The venue will be L’Fisher, Bacolod City, Philippines. It is along Lacson Street and has been “Tourism Strip of Bacolod City, L’ Fisher Hotel prides itself as the only first-class accommodation in the locale.
