Currently, I serve as chair of the Cal Catterral Financial (CCF) Aid Fund Committee and editorial board member of the International Journal of School and Educational Psychology.
To continue my support to the mission of ISPA in improving healthy development and quality of life for children globally, I commit to take on a leadership role that can further contribute in making ISPA a financially robust organization. Thus, I am deeply honored to be a candidate for the position of ISPA Treasurer. I bring to this leadership role a wealth of experiences that will help me perform the duties and responsibilities successfully with abiding qualities of collaboration, integrity, precision, and keen eye for details. First, before immigrating to USA, I served as treasurer of the Psychological Association of the Philippines for almost five years, with steady growth in finances throughout my stint. Second, I am presently the treasurer of the New Jersey Association of School Psychologists with duties that cut across maintaining financial resources from subgrants, membership, conferences, and other sources. In addition, I have familiarity with policies and regulations for non-profit entities as well as mechanisms for checking and balancing of finances. Third, as CCF chair for years, I have been working closely with the ISPA treasurer to allocate funds reasonably and equitably among recipients.
Given the chance to be elected as Treasurer, I will endeavor to administer the ISPA accounts with honesty and transparency and to explore avenues for sustainable financial growth of ISPA.
