 Strategic Plan for UPAAA - 2020-'21
 by Carol Colborn, UPAA Arizona
Member, UPAAA Board of Directors

It is a bold move but it goes to show how the leadership of the UPAAA is embarking on a new growth trajectory. Last May 15, at its Board Meeting via Zoom, the Board of Directors approved the Strategic Plan that clarifies its aspirations for the next ten years. Led by the Strategic Planning Committee composed of President Daisy Rodriguez as ex-officio member and Carol Colborn (Chair), Joy Celo (Co-Chair), Nelsie Parrado (IPP), Nits Caccam (PP), and Liza Reyes (Secretary), the Plan lays down the following goals:
  1. Steady growth in individual and organizational members networked in the US, North America, and the world.
  2. A focus on educational, charitable, cultural, and other meaningful programs.
  3. Sustainability in giving back to our Alma Mater and home country with time, talent, and treasure.
  4. A sound financial foundation.
  5. A strong and positive community voice.
There are many states (and even other countries) that are currently underserved where many UP alumni have chosen to migrate. They will benefit from a network that continues to strengthen ties to the University of the Philippines even if we are far from the Philippine shores. The current and future leadership of UPAAA will endeavor to have these noble aspirations guide and inspire all individual and organizational members outside of the Philippines. These are very exciting times for the UPAAA. The path is clear.
