ABOUT US

 

The firm groundwork for the formation of the association was laid out in a meeting on 26 September 2008 during when the 15 founding members in attendance agreed on the name Mapua Alumni Australia (MAA). On 15 November 2008, the alumni group signed a formal resolution regarding the formation of MAA, its purposes and the formation of an Interim Board composed of eleven directors.

The meeting of the Interim Board on 13 December 2008 saw the finalization and ratification of the Constitution/By-Laws. On 8 January 2009, the association was registered with the Fair Trading Board of NSW as a legal entity to be known officially as Mapua Alumni Australia, Inc.

By 7 March 2009, MAA had its first annual general meeting during when the first set of Board of Directors was elected. Subsequently, the Board Members elected from among themselves the MAA Officers, all in accordance with the election rules and procedures as written by an interim Elections Committee.

MAA is a duly recognised international chapter of the National Association of Mapua Alumni , Inc (NAMA). The official acceptance and recognition by NAMA happened on 17 April 2009 during the induction of the new members and the first set of MAA Board Members and Officers

Since its inception, MAA has participated in the annual tree planting day as sponsored by the Blacktown City Council, undertaken a successful food and clothing appeal for the victims of Typhoon Ondoy in the Philippines, conducted an in-house seminar on leadership and launched a series of fund-raising activities to fund its MAA scholarship project. In addition to the aforementioned activities, the quarterly board meeting (to which all members can attend as non-voting participants) and the annual induction and Christmas/Family Day also provide an opportunity for members to work together and interact socially.

MapuaWorld 2015 Convention and Grand Reunion
10 - 13 September 2015|Sydney, Australia

 


Dear All,

 

 

By now most of you have gone back to work, trying to shake off the jetlag and probably have difficulty remembering the delegate you met in Sydney. I have never met a lot of ex-Mapuans in my life, let alone make so many friends in 4 days but this event has given me the opportunity to feel the true spirit of MapuaWorld by renewing old bonds, forming new friendships, establishing communication networks and above all, enjoying each other’s company and having great fun just like the good old days.

 

 

We hope that by hosting this great event, Mapua Alumni Australia now has a special place in everyone's heart.

 

 

We thank you all for the great support, the friendship, the laughter, the cherished memories.  We shall remember these for a long time, at least until the next MapuaWorld.

 

 

We have updated our MW2015 Sydney website:

Best regards,
