From 11 mothers in 1989, the Autism Society Philippines has grown to more than 8,000 members with 62 chapters nation-wide. Sixteen new chapters were added to the family since the last chapter leaders’ conference in 2010.

With the rapid growth of our membership and changing realities of the disability landscape in the country and abroad, the Society also needs to enhance the capability of its nationwide leadership to be relevant and responsive to the call of the times.

In preparation for meeting these challenges, the National Office will be conducting the 4th Chapter Leaders’ Conference on October 27 and 28 (Saturday and Sunday) at the Legend Villas, 60 Pioneer corner Madison Streets in Mandaluyong City.  The Bahay ni Angelo King Foundation, our perennial Autism Angel, is again the sponsor of this event.

The conference that will be attended by around 80 chapter leaders and trustees from Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao aims to hone the leadership skills of ASP’s leaders, strengthen their relationships and be updated of the development in the disability sector. It will also assess the strengths and limitations of the organization, examine its policies and plan the direction of ASP for the coming years. All this in preparation for celebrating ASP's 25th founding anniversary in 2014.

Chapter leaders may contact the National Office at telephones 929 8447, 926 6941 or through email at autismphils@gmail.com for details of the conference.
