2021 President Message
Dear PICE-UAE Members,
On behalf of the PICE-UAE National Board of Directors 2021, we want to express our sincere gratitude for choosing and giving us your trust and support to lead this another year of continuing challenges of Covid-19 pandemic. With God’s grace, we will be able to keep up and together, we will make a difference.
There are so many “firsts” that happened with the Chapter this year 2021.
Due to the effect of pandemic outbreak and our need to adapt with the “New Normal” society, it is the first time that the election was delayed and held virtually along with the General Assembly. It is the first time that the immediate past BODs has to do extended months of service before handing-over to incumbent officers. It is the first time to hold our Oath taking virtually. Lastly, it is the first time to have elected a woman President and first from DNE (Dubai & Northern Emirates) and yes, that is me.
I have accepted the challenge to support women empowerment advocacy and to prove that we can be an agent of change and be able to lead despite difficulties and cultural diversities.
I thank God and pray that I will do my best to serve without asking anything in return and continue to share blessing and support to any member whenever I can and whenever I have. As I always manifest, I have learned to give not because I have much, but I know how it feels to have nothing.
Personally, I would like to thank the 2020 Board of Directors, officers and committee members who became my close friends and family, it may not be by blood but by heart. It is undeniable that together, we have survived and surpassed the hardest point of challenge the pandemic has disposed, not knowing what to do during the first outbreak worldwide. Kudos to you all and you will always be remembered and cherished.
I would like to encourage everyone to connect with us and reach out at any time, please know that we are always open for your suggestions, queries or any concerns, or anything that we could be of assistance. We are always offering free Webinars that are easily accessible to get registered, to promote and deliver our Membership a sustainable and continuing career development and quality education while increasing our high value opportunities virtually and beyond. This pandemic effect is not yet over and we will never know when this will be over, however, it will not stop us to continue to serve while we are also keeping you safe.
Maraming-maraming salamat sa walang sawa n’yong suporta.
Mabuhay po tayong lahat.
Mabuhay ang PICE-UAE Chapter!
Much love and God bless us all!
