Dear fellow UP alumni and friends,


Welcome to the UPAADCMDVA website!

It is my distinct honor and pleasure to serve as President of the UP Alumni Association of DC,

Maryland, and Virginia (UPAADCMDVA) for 2018-2019.  I earned my Bachelor of Science in

Statistics in 1989 from UP Diliman and come from a family of UP alumni.  Like many of you, I

am proud of my UP heritage.  

Our distinguished organization, founded in 1974, has a long and successful history of bringing

together alumni in the area and promoting the UP spirit through service, excellence, and

fellowship.   I am deeply committed to continuing this tradition and building on it, along with the 

dedicated and hardworking UPAADCMDVA Officers and Directors. 

As we begin our journey, I hope you will actively join us in the many events that we are planning for our group:

- Whether it is one of our happy hours or social gatherings, a volunteer or sporting event, the annual summer picnic, or our Christmas party - I promise it will be fun!  

- I am also excited to let you know we are planning a UPAADCMDVA Learning Series on topics of interest for our members.  This will be a forum for exchanging ideas and information, a great opportunity for us UP life-long learners!

- Finally, UPAADCMDVA will be celebrating its 45th year anniversary in 2019!  Along with other events, our Executive Committee is planning a UP Ball next year to cap this milestone.  

Please watch out for future announcements on our UPAADCMDVA Facebook group, via email, and on this website.  We look forward to seeing you at many of these events!D

If you have any suggestions on how we can better serve our membership, please feel free to reach out to me directly.

Go UP!

Sarah Bengzon

President, 2018-2019
