The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

ASP Inducts New Officers and Trustees

Hon. Mayor Dahlia A. Loyola inducted the new set of officers and trustees of Autism Society Philippines last 8 September 2012 at the San Lazaro Business and Leisure Park, Carmona, Cavite. The induction was one of the major events of the two-day 5th Regional Conference on Autism, hosted by the ASP Cavite Chapters, with Ms. Albinia “Chie” Marquez acting as the Conference Chair.

Mayor Loyola of Carmona, Cavite is a long time partner and supporter of ASP. Through her political will and able leadership persons with disabilities and their families in Carmona now enjoy the benefits and privileges mandated by law.

The new set of officers and trustees will serve our organization for two years. The ASP Officers are President Mary Janette Peña, Vice President Cecile Sicam, Secretary Mona Magno-Veluz, Treasurer Evelyn Go and Auditor Mary Grace Adviento. Serving as equally important Trustees are, Carmel Almendrala, Gina Bermudo, Perlita So, Elizabeth Udquin, Fortunato Agbayani and Alejandro Cabason, Jr.

This is the first time in the history of ASP that the president came from the provincial chapter of ASP!

As officers and trustees, the new group will be responsible for formulating new policies, implementing programs and services through the different committees and steering the organization to reach its goals to truly promote the rights and welfare of persons with autism and their families. It will be building on the successes of the previous officers and will be challenged to address the needs of an ever-changing society.

ASP and its 60 chapters join to welcome and congratulate the newly-inducted officers and trustees. More power to all of you!
