A Message from the President
On behalf of the officers and members of our association, I am pleased to welcome you to the official site of The Texas Association of Mapúa Alumni (TAMA). TAMA is a non-profit organization founded in 1980 by graduates of Mapúa Institute of Technology, considered as one of the finest engineering and architectural schools in the Philippines. The association's primary goals are to promote the image of Mapua graduates and the Alma Mater; to uphold and sustain loyalty to the Alma Mater; to foster camaraderie among the members and their families; and to provide financial assistance to deserving students of Mapúa who are unfortunately inadequate to pursue their studies.
TAMA prides itself as one of the first Fil-Am organizations founded in Texas that still exists to date. Its past officers and members have left behind a legacy that has become a model to other organizations. Their efforts contributed significantly in helping the organization evolve to where it is today. As TAMA embarks on its 32nd year of existence, I have the distinct pleasure of serving as its 16th president. With the help of our new Board of Officers and our Board of Advisors, we will remain steadfastly focused on upholding the organization’s goals and objectives.
We will continue our scholarship and scientific calculator give away programs to the needy students of our Alma Mater. We will keep on holding various fundraising activities to help sustain TAMA’s scholarship fund which has always been the ultimate beneficiary of all our undertakings. We will try to rekindle the sense of belonging of old and new members through various sports and social activities. We will also continue to offer technical programs to our members and utilize job networking opportunities to our fellow engineers. Finally, we will uphold our mission to promote camaraderie among members and their families and to foster harmonious relationship with other organizations.
With the help of our competent officers and continued support of our members, I am confident that we can successfully accomplish all these endeavors over the next two years.
Nileon M. Dimalaluan Jr., CE '86
