UAP wins back-to-back PRC’s Outstanding APO Immediate Past UAP National President Hisancha said that the award will “engender a spirit of adventure and encourage each of us to strike out with confidence and our unrelenting quest for excellence in the virtuous circle of creating, imparting, and applying knowledge.” Recognized as the highest award that could be conferred upon an accredited professional organization by the PRC, The Most Outstanding APO Award is presented annually to recognize the achievements, services, and commitment of the APO to the profession. T his was the second year in a row that UAP was awarded the prestigious recognition by the PRC, which is the central agency of the government charged with the licensing and regula- tion of professionals as well as the APOs. The UAP made history by being the first and only APO to win the coveted award seven times (2002, 2007, 2008, 2011, 2014, 2017 and this year 2018) Considered the “Oscars” of the Accredited Professional Organizations, the award was hard-won through the organization’s excellent programs, projects, and accomplishments. On winning the 2018 Most Outstanding APO award, Immediate Past UAP National President Arch Guillermo H. Hisancha said, “UAP is indeed honoured to receive this prestigious national award that recognizes the dedication and commitment of the administration in building a prime professional organization of architects, a community that accommodates different views and allows diverse talents to flourish. While this award marks a significant milestone in our journey towards Unity, Accountability, and Professional Excellence, it is not the end of our quest for continuous improvements. The 2018 Most Outstanding APO will spur us to reach for greater heights.” 2018 “Outstanding Accredited Professional Organization (APO) of the Year” 2018-2019 Annual Report 25
