PRESIDENT’S CHRONICLE # 4 – November 2016


As voted upon during our 15th Biennial National Convention General Meeting at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino on August 7, 2016, the 16th EBM will be hosted by Michigan Chapter in August 2017.  It will also be our PAMET USA 35th Anniversary! Chapter President and National 3rdVP Lavinia Mateo and the other chapter officers are working closely with Nile Alconcel, Past PAMET USA President and now a very active chapter / national adviser in planning for the event.  Nile has been communicating with me regarding the preparations they are doing for the 16th EBM. 

As of date, the following information can already be given out:

               Dates:  August 11 – 13, 2017 (Fri – Sunday)

               Venue: Greektown Hotel and Casino, Detroit, MI

Activities are now being lined up in close coordination with the Scientific Committee chaired by National  President- Elect Rex Famitangco. Corresponding fees will be determined based on the activities. By January 2017, specific details of the 16th EBM and 35th Anniversary will already be sent out to the general membership and  the registration process  will be done online (for the first time) as suggested by Rex.  


New York Chapter held its 32nd Anniversary and Induction of Officers at Leonard’s Palazzo on November 26, 2016. I was not able to attend because of the expensive airfare of >$900 to NY and back to Las Vegas (probably because it was a Thanksgiving weekend!) plus the hotel accommodation.  To save our association the $500.00 budget allocated for the national president’s travel to a chapter, I requested our National 2nd VP Vangie Robles to take my place as inducting officer or to invite one from their area.  The 32nd Anniversary and Induction of Officers went well as shown by the beautiful pictures / videos posted on FB and our website.  Thank you Vangie for posting the video of your chapter’s Cotillion / Rigodon de Honor dance presentation. You all looked handsome / beautiful with your colorful Filipiniana attire!  We enjoyed looking at your pictures and watching your videos!

Congratulations to NY Chapter President Marvin Hernandez and the new set of officers! Congratulations as well to the outgoing officers led by Virgie Macalindong for a job well done!

Hope to see you all in our 16th EBM in Detroit, Michigan on August 11 – 13, 2017!
