PNU-LISAA: A Team Working For One Goal

Acceptance speech by Ma. Evelyn P. Nabus delivered during the 4th General Assembly on November 20, 2004 at PNU Library, Manila

Ms. Perla Garcia, our inducting officer, Dr. Linda M. Tayona, PNU LIS Department chairman, colleagues in the profession, good afternoon.

I am having mixed feelings right now. I feel anxious if I can carry out the responsibilities that go with the position of president the Association has entrusted me. But knowing that I belong to a team that really works and is committed to carrying out the Association’s vision, I feel relieved.

My term will continue the vision of the Association to conduct a massive campaign for membership and it will only be done with the help of each one of us. Now we have more than 200 members, but sad to say only a quarter of the members are active, and some are hesitant to commit their time, knowledge, and sometimes their “treasures” for the success of the Association.

We will also continue to conduct relevant for a and seminars with minimal fees and invite competent speakers. We are open to suggestions on topics we should carry on for next year and how we can raise funds for our Association so we can continue to support deserving LIS student through a scholarship grant.

We have all dreamed for this Association to come into being and now that we are on our fourth year, I humbly ask your help to invite your classmates to be a part of our Association, a TEAM that works to achieve ONE goal.

Lastly, thank you for all the support you are giving the Association and we are hoping to see all of you and your other classmates in our forthcoming activities. And I know with the help of all of you present here, our Association, will go a long way. Good day.
