3. Call for All Bay Area Alumni to be Active Participants/Project Proponents in UPAASF activities/projects

As your board secretary, I am inviting all UP alumni in the bay area to actively participate in running UPAASF. There are more than 1500 UP alumni in the Bay Area. Each one’s input is priceless.

Membership in UPAASF is open to all UP alumni in the Bay Area. There are two types of membership, namely:

  1. Regular members:  Every person who is a holder of any degree, title, or certificate, or who is a former regular student of the University having earned at least sixty (60) academic units and not having been dismissed for misconduct or scholastic deficiency,  is a regular member.
  2. Honorary members:  Members of the faculty and administration of the University, parents who have sent at least three (3) children to the University, or other persons who have shown special interest in the University and the Alumni Association, may be nominated to become honorary members by any regular member in good standing of the Association,  and may be elected as such by a majority vote of the Board of Directors.

Note-those who studied at UP but did not complete 60 units or did not earn any degree, title or certificate may apply for honorary membership)

Members in Good Standing:

Every member, regular or honorary, who shall pay the annual fee is a member in good standing. However, in years when the Board waives the annual fee, every member, regular or honorary, is considered as a member in good standing.

Membership Fee Waived for 2017 

For this year, your board waived the annual fee. Thus, all alumni within the Bay Area are welcome as presumed members when you attend any of its activities or have shown intent.

Please visit for more information about UPAASF.

I am continuously trying to connect with all alumni on LinkedIn so as to bring each one as active participant in all UPAASF activities. This is your association and your active participation is of utmost importance to UPAASF. So please respond positively to my LinkedIn invite.

Thank you very much and I look forward to seeing you on November 1, 2017.

Clod Gomez
Board Secretary, UPAASF
