PRESIDENT’S REPORT
July 2017 Issue

Last June 21, in celebration of the Philippine Independence, we had two of the country’s prime-movers of arts and culture. Arch. Paulo Alcazaren shared with us the relevance of national heritage conservation, and Direk Joel Lamangan on the state of the local film industry and how it is developing as an art. Our June GMM was a diversion from our usual topics.
