"STUDENT ACTIVISM, THEN & NOW"
Remember those electrifying days in UP during Martial law? What about the situation now with the cutting of the 1989 UP-DND Accord? Listen to our guest speakers Dr. Fidel Nemenzo, UP Chancellor, and Erie Maestro of the Vancouver Public Library. This is a perfect way to commemorate the First Quarter Storm in 1970!

Mga Isko at Iska,
Isang buwan na lang bago tayo magkita-kitang muli sa ating Christmas Party at AGM :)
We are already at 75% capacity, so for those who haven't bought their tickets yet, please contact any of the BODs to confirm your attendance.
Not only do we have delicious buffet dinner and dancing, but we will also have give aways and raffle prizes for everyone.
We are looking for pictures to add to the souvenir program so please email me at email@example.com if you have photos especially those taken during the early years of UPAABC. Deadline to submit will be Saturday, Nov 2nd, 2019.
And as with souvenir programs, we are looking for sponsors who would like to take a page, half a page or a quarter page in the booklet. Even if you don't have any business to advertise, why not take this opportunity to greet the rest of UPAABC members Merry Christmas in the souvenir program? The proceeds will all go to our scholarship fund and other activities. I'm attaching the sponsorship program package here.

Dear UPAABC Family,
It is a great honour to serve as President of UPAABC for 2021 and 2022. The board and I are committed to serve UPAABC and the community to the best of our ability while respecting the limitations brought by the pandemic. We hope to continue the sacred traditions of UPAABC, with some modifications, and introduce new activities to blend with the changing times.
Here is the proposed schedule of activities for 2021. Your suggestions and participation are important to us!
Let me express our admiration and gratitude to the outgoing President, Ms. Mylene Villanueva, and the past board for their many valuable projects.
On behalf of the new board of directors, I wish everyone a productive new year and thank you, in advance, for your support!
Anita "Cookie" Aytona
2021 & 2022
