Lucero-Prisno heads UP Alumni in UK

The Netherlands
Wed 16th February 2011

The University of the Philippines Alumni Association (UPAA) of the United Kingdom elected a new interim head in the person of our own Munting Nayon writer Don Eliseo Lucero-Prisno III.  Don is currently based in the UK where he is connected with Cardiff University and the University of Liverpool.
UPAA-UK was established in London on 7 February 2009 through the encouragement of then Philippine Ambassador to the UK Edgardo Espiritu who was once the President of the University of the Philippines Alumni Association and a member of the UP Board of Regents.  Exactly two years after, a new interim group takes over from the core committee established in 2009.  Lucero-Prisno will however hold office as President ad interim as the membership of UPAA-UK is to be consolidated since more alumni are being recruited from the other parts of the country including England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.  A new mandate from a bigger membership body is expected thus the interim status of the officers.
