UAP Metro's 1st GMM for Fiscal Year 2003-2004


The UAP-Manila Metro Chapter held its 1st General Membership Meeting of the Fiscal Year 2003-2004 last 31 July 2003, 7 o’clock in the evening at the Satay Curry Restaurant located at the 3rd level of E-Square Commercial, Ortigas Avenue, Greenhills, San Juan, Metro Manila. The Chapter is now under the leadership of new set of Officers headed by its Newly Inducted Chapter President, Arch. Bobbie So.

The GMM was sponsored by the following Companies namely:

MEGA SYSTEM ENTERPRISES wherein they presented their new line of product which among them are: VALSIR HDPE Sanitary Piping System from Italy. They presented how they differ and have more advantages than other pipes in the industry today. They gave away brochures of their products together with a nice folder, a graphing pad and a pen to the architect-members during the dinner.

EUROTILES - the leading importer of quality tiles and bathroom fixtures in the Philippines today. It plays a vital role in accelerating the country’s aspirations toward economic growth. They did not have any presentation during the GMM although they gave away brochures showing their product lines for Architect’s references.

REPUBLIC POWDERCOAT CORPORATION also co-sponsored the GMM although they did not do any presentation nor distribute any materials. They are the only service coater in the Philippines wherein they have the most complete surface treatment facilities for steel, aluminum and other metal products.

The three sponsors funded the sumptuous Lauriat dinner with a mixture of Singaporean, Malaysian, Thai and Indonesian Cuisine. All members were satisfied as they feasted on the food served from appetizers to desserts as this was the first time that the Chapter had a different kind of food aside from the usual Chinese cuisine. Everybody seemed to have a wonderful time for they were really excited at the new venue and as well many old faces who have not attended in the past. With the location more accessible to more Architect-members, attendance was surprisingly high as the place really got packed that the restaurant staff had to provide more chairs to accommodate more members. More so with the sponsors who enjoyed and who gained another mileage in the promotions of their products.

During the GMM, Chapter President, Arch. Bobbie So, announced that the Chapter’s Anniversary Party and Thanksgiving Night will be held at the Island Cove Resort and Leisure Park located at Binakayan, Kawit, Cavite. This will take place on September 27-28, 2003. It was also announced that the CONFIRMATION of architect-members with respect to their participation on the said affair is necessary in order to determine and finalize the number of attendees and for the organizing committee in making room assignments. It is also necessary to give the most recent information of respective members with the Chapter Secretary, Arch. Francis Abrea, before or during the next GMM in order to update their records in the souvenir program that will be given away during the Anniversary Party on September 27-28, 2003.

Reminder: Only Architect-Members will be sponsored on their overnight accommodation and meals(dinner and breakfast) during the Anniversary Party. The sponsors, suppliers and special guests will only be covered for their dinner. However, if they wish to join the Chapter for two days, it will be to their own account.
