In The Beginning…

In a thorough and meticulous deliberation… during an MFPI congress not so long ago… the concept of Individual Members was forged with the prime objective of educating non Club members into practicing Responsible Mountaineering, believing that MFPI as the leading mountaineering institution has that innate responsibility.

And so, MFPI through its educators started the conduct of the nationwide Basic Mountaineering Course (BMC) to beginners, freelance, non club-members, and outdoor enthusiast. Then came 2003, to put a structure… the entry of IMs was organized by batch/groups. First group agreed to have a project prior to becoming a full pledge IM, which became a practice for every batch (BMC and Group Project). Moreover, an MFPI congress officially coined IMs to RMs (Regular Members, to align it to the MFPI constitution)

From group 1, now we welcome the entry of group 28. Indeed, we are growing by the numbers. Each group given due recognition and credence every time a project with environmental consciousness and social relevance was successfully undertaken.

Beyond batches/groups, we know act united as we move further in strengthening our bond as we meet together, acquaint ourselves with each other, deliberate concerns, resolve issues, and move together as “ONE.”

Fellow IMs… may we officially invite you to attend our first Get Together activity dubbed as “RMs – Grand Eyeball” with the theme “Pagtagpuin, Pagbuklurin, Kilalanin.” This will be on September 29 – 30, 2007 at Camp Allen, Sta.
