President's Message


It is a distinct honor to serve the PBA as President for term 2022.

I became a member in 2000 during the presidency of Llewellyn L. Llanillo. The burning issue then was Y2K and how it was supposed to end the world as we know it. Well, that did not happen but that decade was nonetheless tumultuous. Through all those years, I have witnessed the constant presence and collective strength of the Association.


Justice and power must be brought together, so that whatever is just may be powerful, and whatever is powerful may be just.

Blaise Pascal
