UPDAA Updates from Dr. Clemente

Dear UPDAA Members,

Please take note of the following:

A.The UPMAA Homecoming scheduled on October 28 is cancelled. There will be no more UPMAA Awards for this year due to the sudden turn of events compounded by the lack of time for preparation. This was the decision of the UPMAA board a few hours ago. Instead there will be a UPMAA Christmas Party on November 27, 2009 the venue to be announced later.

The 2010 UPMAA Homecoming will be on Novermber 6, 2010. I think this time there will enough time for each college’s search committee to prepare for this event.

This forum was initiated by the UPManila Chancellor, Dr. Ramon Arcadio, the agenda of which was the selection of the next dean of the UPCD. This was attended by the UPCD Faculty, Students, Alumni snd Staff.As president of the UPDAA, I was present together with Dr. Arnon Rivera, UPDAA President-Elect.The event had 2 parts, Part 1 Discussion of the Nomination Process for the next Dean (presented by Dr. Arcadio) and Part 2 Review of the College’s thrust, priorities and achievements ( presented by Dean Elsie de Castro).

consultations will be scheduled and will be announced as sooon as I receive notice.
Please wait for the next bulletin.

2. Please take note of the following information for the 2009 UPMAA Alumni Homecoming.
a.The venue will now  be at the Social Hall, 8 Fl Central Block of the UP-PGH,October

b.Theme: ” Pagtanaw sa Ikalawang Siglo”
c.Tickets 500 pesos each ( will be available at the UPCD)
d.Nomination for the 2009 UPMAA Awards is now open.

I am printing the criteria for the UPMAA awards way ahead of the official and formal announcements because I think its too late considering that the awards night will be on October 28. Each college will select One Awardee.The committee will be composed of the UPDAA Awards Committee ( Dr. Sophia Macalintal- Chair) and Dr Jessica Santos and company representing the UPCD. So this is a joint effort of the UPDAA and the UPCD.
