Welcome to the newly developed Ternate Association of USA website.
I am humbled and honored to be elected as the President of the Ternate Association of USA for 2012-2014. On behalf of the
executive board, I believe that we have a great team to lead our association in our efforts to upgrade the quality of the
lives of Ternateņos and to preserve our rich cultural heritage. As we embark in the next two years, I encourage Ternateņos
to provide their support in our upcoming endeavors all in the spirit of continued advancement of our member’s interests,
including our kababayan in Ternate, Cavite who may need our assistance.
As part of our initial activities, we recently established this new website for everyone to be informed of our current
activities, meeting minutes, and upcoming projects. This website will also serve as a link to employment opportunities, elderly
care, and other services needed by our members. We also developed a mission statement to ensure that everyone has a clear
understanding of our association’s purpose. I am happy to announce that our new mission statement is “To
Enrich the Lives of Ternateņos and To Preserve our Cultural Heritage.” We
believe that this statement clearly defines who we are and the progressive steps that we take to achieve our goals.
For the executive board’s consideration, I also encourage everyone to provide us their input (by completing the comment
section box below) on how to better serve our community and our members in the years ahead. Everyone is also welcome to attend
our monthly meeting held every first Saturday of each month. The monthly meeting provides everyone an opportunity to offer
suggestions and comments, as well as, to observe the camaraderie shared by association members.
I would also like to thank the former officers, especially Ms. Fe Lagos Abales and
Ms. Grace Federico Aguilar for holding
down the fort the last few years. We look forward to their further support in the upcoming years.
Thank for your visiting our website. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Maraming Salamat Po,
Edwin H. Monteagudo
