Capitol University Alumni Association elects new officers

The Capitol University Alumni Association (CUAA) recently elected its new officers during the annual general assembly coinciding with the Capitol University’s (CU) 40th alumni homecoming.

Consistent with the alumni’s objectives of promoting professional growth of its graduates and supporting its developmental activities among others, CUAA in coordination with the university’s Job Placement Office, will hold a two-day job fair catering to CU graduates and the general public on March 17-18, 2011 in the CU gymnasium. At least 50 head-hunters in the city’s and of the province’s top companies are expected to send their Human Resource Officers and Representatives.

CUAA will also partner with the CU’s Central Student Government (CSG) during the Senior’s Day on March 12, 2011, to orient graduating students of the challenges they face on job-hunting and the corporate world’s unlimited possibilities where they could hone and apply their academic and leadership skills.

Clifford Jose Roa, a banker by profession, a Director of Philippine Red Cross – CDO Chapter and an IT professional for Rotary International’s District 3870 was elected as the President who will take the helms of leadership for the 40,000 strong alumni of one of the city’s premier university.

Dr. Romeo Minoza, Jr., the elected vice president, currently the Research and Extension Office President. He brought with him his parliamentary and office administration skills as the incumbent chair of Institute of Maritime Education Professional Alumni Association.

Joining them are Dr. Beth Figueroa, Dean of College of Business Administration, Dr. Myrna Garde, Professor in College of Arts and Sciences, Second Mate Manuel Suganob, Professor in College of Maritime Education, Mr. Noli Dela Rita of Bureau of Fire Protection Region 10 and an active officer of Regional Association of Government Communicators (RAGCOM), Mr. Ferdinand Paurom, Professor in College of Business Administration,  Mr. Vierni Santi Pimentel of High School Batch 1978, (formerly of Nestle Philippines, Inc.), Dr. Francis Thaise Cimene, Dean of Graduate School and Immediate Past President (IPP) Samuel Macabinlar, a professor in College of Arts and Sciences.

Ms. Montserrat “Manet” Aberilla was appointed by the board as the Treasurer.

The board of directors has so far passed and approved a resolution that primarily caters to the needs of the alumni members themselves. Special committees were already set-up to handle the 2012 and 2013 homecoming as well as it strengthened the need for a helpline desk with the creation of Administration Committee. Membership Committee was broken into internal and external affairs to get in touch with the alumni who are working outside the country and creating a database of members who are just waiting to be “tagged” by today’s popular social networking sites.

The Directory of Professionals, a major project initiated by Past Board of Trustee and current office manager Ms. Alice Sarmiento, is still accepting advertisement and bookings to those alumni to have their name, contact details and profession to be included in the first-of-its-kind directory.

CUAA is registered with Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) with registry No. CN201030376 with its latest approved amendments received duly by SEC on October 15, 2010.

CUAA has taken its initiative to support various projects such as Intramurals, CU Dance Troupe, Homecomings, Christmas Activities and Seniors Day, and extends financial support to any alumni who were hospitalize or whose family needs burial support.

CUAA fully supports the Capitol University’s commitment to develop the youth into “Total Persons,” mature and responsible individuals who are intellectually, professionally and technically competent, imbued with desirable attitudes and steeped in moral and spiritual values, who serve as catalysts for social transformation.
