National President’s Message It has been another fruitful fiscal year for UAP. From the moment I accepted the mandate entrusted to me by the general membership with around 63% voting and the highest voting percentage of 95%, it is in my anticipation that UAP is looking ahead to this leadership as I convey the ideals of Unity, Ability, and Continuity of Service. The current administration aims to create a sense of shared purpose and values within the Organization by means of describing our direction in a precise and sim- ple language and that is ‘LET ARCHITECTURE BE KNOWN TO THE PUBLIC’. On our journey to turn this message into a reality, the pioneering campaign slogan: “FOR YOUR PLANS and DESIGNS, GET AN ARCHITECT” became apparent. This advocacy campaign will bring to life the role of architects as thought and action leaders in improving our cities, towns, and neighbourhoods. Because I believe, that architects are diverse group with diverse strengths and skills; collectively, we are a strong force for positive change. Working together, and through our channels of relationships with public officials and community leaders, we are well positioned to advocate for the many significant issues that affect us and the communities in which we live and work. As we hold our 45th UAP National Convention, it is my duty to provide the general membership a dedicated and transparent overview of all the initiatives, efforts, chal- lenges and opportunities this leadership accomplished for the Fiscal Year 2018-2019. To all of those who have been working with me to fulfil a common goal – our Members from the National Board of Directors, Executive Directors, College of Fellows Officers and Jury Members, Committee Heads and Members of Standing and Special Committees, Chapter Board Officers and the many tireless volunteers of UAP, friends and partners in the industry, your precious time, effort, and resources accorded to UAP will leave a legacy for what we have contributed to the UAP community and become immortal. In our effort to conserve our money and resources, copies of the Annual National President’s Report will be limited. I invite all of you to visit our UAP Website: www.united-architects.org and follow us on UAP social media accounts for updates and more stories to share. You are behind the every success described in this report. THANK YOU for your support, trust, and shared commitment. We want you to be proud of us. In short, to all of you: WE ARE ALL IN THIS GREAT INSTITUTION TOGETHER. Arch. Benjamin K. Panganiban, Jr. FUAP, ASEAN Arch., APEC Arch., DFRIA 26th UAP National President 2018-2019 Annual Report 5
