IECEP Manila 2013 Officers Oath Taking. This was my first ever service as an officer of our professional organization; I was elected as the Corporate Secretary then.

A few months after I got my Electronics Engineer license wayback 2008, I began involving myself as an active member of our Professional Organization, the Institute of Electronics Engineers of the Philippines (IECEP, Inc.).

IECEP Manila 2013 1st Board Meeting.


As an observer, I got disappointed on how poorly it operates during that time. However, because of the said dismay and frustrations, it didn‘t become a reason for me to abandon or to be indifferent with them and instead I engaged myself more by participating in their activities not only in the seminars but also in the other projects like outreach or fun run.

My 1st Electronics Engineering Quiz Show Judging last 2013 held at Lyceum of the Philippines University.

Of course, I have paid all expenses from my own pocket, and nope, I’m not a high wage earner but only an average one. I was just really finding ways, and saving money to attend to it.

The Plaque of Appreciation I received during the 1st Electronics Engineering Quiz Show Judging 2013.

While participating in their projects and activities, every time I was seeing lapses, substandard and unacceptable practices, I was always calling the attention of the past board members and officers and ranting what I saw, straight to their faces.

IECEP Manila 2013 1st Best Local Chapter Award.

Thus, I know for sure that it always left them with a guilt feeling. I continued the said strategy as my way of supporting our professional organization.

Teamwork. Professionalism. Hardwork. It is such a milestone for me that I was part of IECEP Manila’s 1st Best Local Chapter Award 2013.


Five years later (2013), I became more involved to the organization when I’ve had the opportunity to serve as one of the officers of IECEP Manila Chapter (thanks to my former undergraduate professor, Engr. Ronnie Serfa Juan who dipped me to this mess ~ just kidding!??).

IECEP Manila 2013 Incumbent and Past Officers and Students.

Looking back on my six years of tenure in the Institute of Electronics Engineers of the Philippines-Manila Chapter (IECEP Manila, Inc.), and now that I’m part of the 10th Anniversary celebration last January 11 and 12, 2019 held at the Century Park Hotel Manila, I‘m grateful that God has given me this blessing to publicly serve my fellow professionals. It doesn‘t just keep my feet on the ground but it also helps me to realize that earning money or building your career way up for your own good alone is nothing, if you don‘t know how to share your time, effort, and resources to those who are in need.
