October 3 reception for Philippine government officials


You might be interested to come to this reception. The planned CFAA convention could not happen this year, and we are having this reception instead. This is a reception for our guests – the Philippine consul from San Francisco (and some of his staff) and the commissioner of Trade and Investment. It should be a great ‘meet and greet’ (and dine) opportunity. Good time to have a little conversation about matters of interest to us.

If you can come, please let me know right away, send in a check ($33 per person; to me or any of the 4 of us – Jet, Marisa or Mina; or Nanding Macalino) as we need to give Sheraton a good headcount by Sept 30.



Come join us!
