Sept. 4-6, 2009: UP Alumni Association in America General Assembly and Convention at the JW Marriott Hotel in Washington, DC

Here are the updates for the upcoming University of the Philippines in America’s biennial General Assembly and Convention at the JW Marriott Hotel on September 4 to 6, 2009 in Washington DC. I’ve conveniently used the SCRIBD tools so anyone can share the brochures, registration form, advertising form, and photo montage form for the UP Hall of Fame. For those of you who are not familiar with Scribd.com, I have also included some instructions (scroll below). – Lorna Dietz, Liaison for the West Coast, UPAAA

Thank you to acclaimed Folksinger/Pinoy Rocker/Painter Heber Bartolome for providing his video diary of the June 2008 UP Centennial Celebration at Araneta Coliseum in Metro Manila. He asked me to share this with our Overseas Filipino UP graduates. Check out the slide show. You or your friends might be there.
