FANHS Leaders to Speak at Filipino Intercollegiate Networking Dialogue (FIND) Conference at Drexel University, Philadelphia - March 28, 2009

UPDATE: Students organized a highly successful FIND conference at Drexel University. CONGRATS to all!! Here are photos from the 28 March 09 event:

Throughout FIND’s history, many FANHS (Filipino American National Historical Society) leaders have supported FIND as speakers and donors. Dr. Fred Cordova, Dr. Dorothy Fujita-Rony, Oscar Penaranda, Peter Bacho, Dr. Dawn Mabalon, Dr. Patricia Espiritu Halagao, Timoteo Cordova and others have all been speakers and workshop leaders at FIND since the early 1990s. Generations of FANHS youth -- including many students of FANHS Trustee Ray Obispo -- have also served as FIND organizers and leaders. This year, FANHS leaders speaking at FIND include Professor Emily Lawsin of FANHS Michigan Chapter (opening keynote plenary session), Dr. Allan Bergano FANHS Hampton Roads Founding President (closing keynote plenary session), and workshop leaders FANHS Hampton Roads President Veronica Salcedo, former FANHS Trustee Brad Baldia, Gem Daus who gave a workshop at the FANHS national conference in Anchorage, and Dr. Joan May Cordova, FANHS National President. CHEERS and many thanks to all the students who worked so hard to create this conference! Roberto Jamora, UVA senior who worked with FIND's program committee, has been a young FANHS leader since 8th grade. Special thanks :-)
