The Naffaaaaahhhhhkayabang Conference of Filipinos In Seattle

Gloria Arroyo will be attending after all the "Fiesta Sa Seattle ng mga Mayayabang na Filipino". Here’s the press release from Naffaaaaahhhhhkayabang na grupong Filipino.

Gloria will be the keynote during the Gala event on Friday, September 26, 2008 .  Over 1,000 attendees are expected.

Seattle , WA . - Over 500 Filipinos and Filipino American leaders, entrepreneurs, community advocates and members will convene in the Emerald City 's Westin Hotel on September 26-28 to discuss how to " Forge a New Filipino American Agenda for the 21st Century" and promote the well- being of Filipinos and Filipino Americans. The delegation is sponsored by the National Federation of Filipino American Associations (NaFFAA).

NaFFAA was established in 1997 and has built affiliate organizations from all over the
United States including Guam and the Marianas , and growing into a huge international body.   In over a decade, NaFFAA has helped, not only its members but also the Filipino community at large, in areas of education, voters education, and working partnership with government and non-government agencies to promote diversity.  Specifically, NaFFAA had been in the forefront of the Campaign for Filipino Veterans Equity and Justice through the National Alliance for Filipino Veterans Equity ( NAFVE) .

 NaFFAA monitors legislation and public policy issues affecting Filipino Americans and works in coalition with other national groups around common issues and concerns.  In addition, the national office serves as a communications link between affiliate members as well as an information source on federal and legislative initiatives and policies relevant to Filipino Americans.

Veteran United States Representative from the State of
Washington Jim McDermott will keynote at the Gala night.  "My roots in and commitment to Seattle 's Filipino community go back over 30 years to my days as a Washington State legislator.  Working with community leaders, I championed issues like reciprocity for Filipino doctors and dentists, and state bi-lingual education with Filipino American Educators.  As a medical doctor, I was deeply committed to the passage of the first physician assistant program in the State of Washington .  In Congress, my efforts have continued on behalf of the Filipino community, and I continue to fight for the Wards Cove Workers Act and Filipino Veterans Equity.  I believe our community is strong because of the strong ethnic ties we nurture and maintain.  Rest assured that I will continue to speak out on behalf of the Filipino community I proudly represent in the U.S. House of Representatives".
 
Over 30 enriching workshops designed to benefit the needs of this diverse community.  " This is an election year, it is important for us to hear from both the Democrats and Republicans,  Peter Su from the McCain Campaign will be here, as well as Charmaine Manansala from the Obama Campaign," said Alma Q. Kern, NaFFAA National Chair.

Health and Education are big topics in this conference as well.  A report on the national pilot study done on Filipino children in public schools K-12 will be discussed.   Workshops on Health  include: prevention of domestic violence and human trafficking, cancer and other common illnesses plaguing Filipinos .  Business workshops by the Filipino Chamber of Commerce in the
Pacific Northwest are offered all day, from IT infrastructure for small business, access to capital, branding and marketing to international trade opportunities.

 "  It is not all work, during this important weekend. There is Golf Tournament, arranged by the Filipino Chamber of Commerce. Golf aficionados are really excited by this.  We also have fellowship night on Friday night at the Muckleshoot Banquet Hall.  There will be talent contest among regions and a surprise.  We typically do this to promote camaraderie and sort of warm up for all of us," explained Mariela Fletcher, Overall Conference Chair.

" We are ready and have our speakers lined up.  Workshops for the youth include:  identity and culture, leadership, networking with other youth, to name a few. We also have field trips planned.  We shall tour historical sites : Bulosan Exhibit,
Rizal Park and Rizal Bridge ", said Ian Purganan, Region 7 Youth Chair.

United States . This conference is designed for all.  Please attend and be part of the unity movement.  We need to be not just initiators of change but also the implementers of change.  This is our only option, moving forward," said the impassioned Kern.

Kern adds, "In less than two weeks, delegates will start coming in. Organizers of this major event are in high spirits -- making phone calls daily, e-mail blasting, inspiring fellow Filipinos to attend and be part of change."

Meanwhile, Bobby Reyes has requested President Gloria M. Arroyo to deliver a “State of the Nation’s Corruption Address” (SONCA) during the national convention of the National Federation of Filipino-American Associations (NaFFAA) in Seattle , Washington , on Sept. 26, 2008 . She is the NaFFAA convention's keynote speaker. Reyes has been called the “Conscience of the NaFFAA, if not of the Filipino-American community” for exposing the corruption in the federation and in the homeland. He has been fighting for accountability and transparency in the NaFFAA since May 2000. Reyes has also asked Alma Q. Kern, the NaFFAA national chairperson, to deliver her own version of the SONCA, the “State of the NaFFAA’s Corruption Address.” He has written numerous articles about the corruption in the NaFFAA and which reports are found in this website’ NaFFAAgate and the FilVets' Lobby sections. Ms. Kern and her predecessor, Loida Nicolas-Lewis, have refused to release the financial statements about the NaFFAA national conventions, particularly the 2002 event in San Jose , California . Details of the Reyes exposé are found in this article, The “Embezzlement” Issues in the Menorgate/NaFFAAgate Scandals of San Jose
