undying efforts of Officers and family members who have

organization. I extend my sincerest gratitude to our patrons,
donors, advertisers and members who consistently provided us
the moral support, and energy to accomplish our goals.

Tonight, I accept with great humility this third term with big
hopes of devotion and dedication to continue in pursuit of our
goals in our association. We need to achieve and allow for a
CHANGE to a new dimension of support and a NEW PLEDGE to
keep that teamwork, the camaraderie and cooperation to build
that bridge for the expansion of the organization.

I was crowned as Mrs. US-Ilocandia in the year 2005 and that


initiated my involvement with this very respectable organization,
being an active member at first, then a member of the Board of
Directors. Now, as I step up as the new executive Vice President, it
is indeed a great honor and pride. Somehow there seems to be a
mandate in my heart, that no matter what or how, I find myself
always effectively supporting and assisting our club to the best of
my potentials and capabilities. This organization had proven its
values through several successful completed projects in our
Ilocandia provinces. It’s been such an inspiration to be a part of
US-ILOCANDIA organization. Our relentless efforts along with our
devotion and profound hopes have enabled us to achieve our
goals. Together, I believe we can reach out to our needy provinces
and people.

With those words quoted above I can say that you can take me out
from Ilocandia but you cannot take the Ilocano in me.

Dios ti angina kanya tayo am-amin.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Shirley Jean Soriano

The Scholarship Committee
welcomes you to our 9th
induction of officers and
dinner/dance.  We are proud and
privileged to have you join us on
this special occasion.
  Eighteen years ago, in 1990, the
US-INA was organized to
encourage, unite and light the
path of the Ilocanos as they
journey along life's highway.
   As one of its objectives, the
Association set aside a
scholarship fund to help US-INA
youth pursue a college
education and obtain a degree
which will benefit him/her and
their community. We would like
to encourage and urge any bona
fide member, who has either a
son/daughter, grandchild, great
grandchild, niece/nephew or
grand niece/nephew who will be
graduating from high school in
June, 2009, to contact one of the

I am honored and privileged to greet you on the 10th Inaugural Dinner


Ball in conjunction with induction of officers for the year 2008-2010.

As I congratulate the elected officers, let me also remind the newly elected
officers that the U. S. INA has existed for almost two decades now because
we had sustained our unity with the strength and fortitude that we have
always demonstrated in times of great challenges. I will fervently pray that
we will continue to be united and strong and also pray that our new
officers will exercise the power bestowed upon them wisely, fairly and
lovingly.

As we install our new set of officers for the year 2008-2010,


I urge you my fellow Ilocanos (FBI) to strengthen our unity so that this will
forge us ahead to face the more enormous challenges of the new
administration. We have to keep the intensity, integrity, sincerity and
perseverance that our predecessors had demonstrated for us.

In the meantime, Let us enjoy the night!
