25th UGAT Annual National Conference
22-24 October 2003, University of San Carlos, Cebu City
Dear UGAT Member,
The 25th UGAT Annual National Conference (UGAT@25) will be held on October 22-24, 2003 at the Cebu Golden Peak Hotel and Suites. I am your Conference Convenor as the Univesity of San Carlos has been honored to once again sponsor this important gathering. You can now view details of the conference on the website of the university, www.usc.edu.ph. Just scroll down the "Announcements" section and click on the UGAT@25 blurb. You will also receive by late next week at the earliest, the printed invitational brochure which we are now sending out by post.
I regret to inform you that we are still trying to develop a cgi table for the Pre-Registration section of the website. This means that you may not be able as yet to pre-register online. However, I earnestly request you to send your name, institution and contact numbers to me (also at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) should you decide to attend the conference so that I can book your hotel room accommodations at the earliest possible time. This will unload UGAT of any financial difficulties later on. This will also help the Secretariat prepare your kit and ID ahead of time.
For now, let me just tell you of the registration-accommodation package to give you an idea of how much you need (in case you find opening the website too cumbersome). If you register on or before September 20, you only need to pay P3,000 for twin-sharing accommodations or P4,000 fo single accommodations. The registration-accommodation package includes the conference kit plus 3 nights, 4 days stay inclusive of buffet meals and snacks. After September 20, you need to add P500 for either of the two types of accommodations (i.e., P3,500 or P4,500). The website as well as the printed brochure I am sending out will spell out payment details by bank transfer. You may also reply to this email so that I can give you more information in this regard. But I do hope you will communicate with me soon. Thank you.
