Guinsaugon, St. Bernard Southern Leyte, which was the massive landslide that killed and injured thousands of people residing in that place, the whole Philippines was moved. Despite the alarming crises in the political and economic arena, the pitiful situation stirred the Filipinos and other countries' compassion to charity. Almost every one gave what they can contribute to help. The Association also did not ignore this tragedy. Its heart of giving once again manifested. Indeed, this is the spirit that one can never deny when it sees the need to help. As soon as the information was disseminated to the members, responses came in. Although, not all member-companies coursed through their donations to the Association because they have correspondingly gave their donations.

Notwithstanding the numerous challenges the Philippine Seafaring Industry has been facing, FAME stand still and continuously has a bigger niche in consistently ensuring the competency of the Filipino seafarers within the international standards as its collective response to the challenges of globalization. Yes, the Association is indeed an ally of the government, foreign principals, seafarers and all stakeholders not only for the welfare of the maritime industry but as well as in different phase of life. It was no doubt when an estimated of more than 150 invited guests both from member-companies, government agencies, press and manning associations gathered to celebrate the Induction of Officers and Board of Directors for 2005-2006 and Christmas Party of the Filipino Association for Mariners Employment, Inc. The Polkabal Ballroom of the historic Manila Hotel in Luneta Park, Manila was filled up on Tuesday, 06 December 2005 at sixth in the evening for the celebration of the affair. Unlike in the previous years, this year s celebration was indeed a consequential and divergent one, as it turned out to have a lot of fun, highlighted by fun games and raffle of prizes as well as exchange of gifts between the member-companies. Ever energetic and hard-working FAME Director, Eng r. Sammuel T. Lim hosted the affair assisted by another Director Mr. Jose Albar G. Kato who served as the Game Master. The night was made special with the presence of the Secretary of the department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Patricia A. Sto Tomas who was the Inducting Officer and Guest Speaker of the event. Other officers from different government agencies, heads of different manning associations also joined the event. The set of Officers and Board of Directors for 2005-2006 that were inducted are: Ms. Josephine J. Francisco (President), Commo. Adonis B. Donato (VP-Internal Affairs), Capt. Teodoro B. Quijano (VP-External Affairs), Mr. Marlon R. Ro o (Secretary), Mr. James E. Nicoll (Treasurer), Mr. Vicente F. Aldanese, Jr. (Director), Capt. Lou A. Atienza (Director), Capt. Vicente J. Brillantes (Director), Capt. Alfonso R. Del Castillo (Director), Capt. Victor S. Del Prado (Director), Mr. Michael J. Estaniel (Director), Capt. Jose M. Mangabat (Director), Capt. Reynaldo D. casareo (Director), Mr. Jose Albar G. Kato (Director), and Engr. Sammuel T. Lim (Director). Subsequently with the Induction of Officers and Board of Directors, the Association headed by its president Ms. Josephine J. Francisco awarded the Plaque of Appreciation and the same time a token to Secretary Patricia A. Sto. Tomas. One such number, which caught the attention of the guests, are the operatic songs rendered by Mr. Camille Lopez Molina and Company from the UP, College of Music. The Marino Idols/ Choirs, an ensemble of talented officers and crew from various manning companies also rendered their own rendition of a number of Christmas songs. Another number, which added to the enjoyment of the affair, is when the OSM Band rendered rock and love songs headed by untiring Commo. Adonis B. Donato. More companies such as Recharge Plus Philippines, Smart Communications, Inc., Magsaysay Travel Tours, Adventure International, Inc., Equitable PCI Bank, Professional Gear, Inc., and Transnational E-Business Professional Gear, Inc. and other sponsors supported the affair. The prizes of fun games and raffle of prizes would not have been possible without the help of these generous sponsors. Some of the major prizes that were raffled off are two (2) units 21-inch Television Set, five (5) units Ipods and two (2) round trip tickets Manila-Hongkong-Manila. Of course, it is not a finale, as this is only a start for FAME getting tougher to continuously put the Philippines in the world map of seafaring as a major supplier of highly competent crew. << BACK FAME ... FAME FAME FAME FAME Activities/Events << BACK The 6th LSM Manning & Training Conference 21-23 November 2005 Questioning the Challenges and Opportunities for the Future this year s LSM Manning & Training Conference was inspired by this theme. Held once again at the Westin Philippine Plaza Hotel last 21st-23rd of November 2005, it gathered the leading personalities in the world maritime and crewing industry to discuss significant issues affecting the industry. The international conference indeed was the best opportunity to continually promote the Filipino seafarers amongst our foreign partners, thus honorable Secretary Patricia Sto. Tomas of the Department of Labor & Employment, in her official welcome to all delegates ensured to discuss what the Philippines is doing to guarantee a trusty long-term supply of quality, competent and skilled seafarers. Various prominent speakers with each respective topic discussing the vital current issues in the world maritime industry highlighted the Conference. This event made another great and crucial impact to the world maritime industry. FAME as the only supporting local Maritime Association in the Philippines again made a special participation to this conference. The Association as a heartfelt support to Lloyds Ship Management, aided the dissemination of information and invitations to the manning agencies in the Philippines and kept them updated on the latest developments about the conference prior its actual event. With the established relationship with LSM and being one of the supporting associations, FAME was given a free slot of one booth in the conference to continually promote the association. Another good fruit of this rapport is that FAME members were privileged to be given a discount on the conference fee. Indeed, a good deed begets a good deed. Concluding, the conference did not only address and clarified issues in the maritime industry, it also gave way for closer rapport and camaraderie amongst the various stakeholders in the world maritime industry. It is true that no matter how tough the issues and problems the industry is facing, as long as all the players in the maritime field are united and cooperative, solutions and improvements are only a hand reach. << BACK FAME ... FAME FAME FAME FAME Activities/Events << BACK A Salute to International Employers of Filipino Seafarers International Maritime Employers Awards 2005 20-21 November 2005 It is overwhelming that we Filipinos are regarded as the Seafarers of Choice for the World s Fleet . We are long been known for as quality seafarers. Not only did they uplift the Philippine integrity, but also greatly contributed to the progress of national economy. The Philippine shipping industry takes its pride in this recognition and thus counts our seafarers as the jewels and staunchest asset that are being carefully taken cared of and nourish through continuous development of quality and competency. And who regarded Filipino seafarers as the most preferred crew and officers? Thanks to our foreign partners who continuously trust and rely on Filipino seafarers pool to man their high risk and big sophisticated ships hence making us the manning capital of the world. The Philippine Government did not ignore this good partnership between the shipping industry and our foreign employers and its exemplary implication to the Philippine society and economic stability. Hence, in 2002, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo issued Proclamation No. 199 instituting the International Maritime Awards to honor deserving shipping principals for being top providers of employment to Filipino seafarers an their valuable contribution to the upliftment of the well-being of the Filipino seafarers. This is to express our sincere recognition and appreciation to foreign principals, shipping executives and maritime organizations for consistently providing productive employment to Filipino seafarers. Indeed, this noble thrust of the Philippine government proved greater return to the Philippines, socially and economically because of the rise of number of deployed seafarers and added remittances. This year 2005, as a continuing motion and gratitude for the better results, the Second International Employers Awards was held as part of the DOLE Labor Opportunities Program with a goal to promote more the employment of Filipinos abroad. Though, budgetary constraint was seen as a hassle in holding the awards rites, still they push through and even made it orderly and exceptional. Maritime Associations such as Philippine-Japan Manning Council (PJMCC), Philippine Association of Manning Agencies and Ship Managers, Inc. (PAMAS); and International Maritime Association of the Philippines (INTERMAP) as spearheaded by the Filipino Association for Mariners Employment, Inc. (FAME), together joined hands in supporting the event to make happen the special recognition rites. In result, a separate Ministerial and Presidential awarding ceremony for the maritime sector was held last 20 and 21 November 2005 at the Polkabal & Pandanggo Ballroom of Manila Hotel for the former and at Malaca an Palace for the latter. This year, 56 ministerial Employer awardees, 25 Presidential Employer Awardees, 8 shipping executives and 7 maritime organizations were awarded, showing a greater percentage of employers compared to the first awarding rites.

As we look forward that this would gear towards tight and stronger partnership with them, let us always realize that the quest is not yet over. In this light, the shipping industry should keep on hard work to cope with the advent of modernization and remain competitive enough as the competition is also getting taut despite the vast opportunity at hand. Let us not get lax but even persevere to keep our integrity as world-class seafarers. << BACK FAME ...

FAME FAME FAME FAME Activities/Events << BACK THE SHIPPING BUSINESS SEMINAR 31 August 01 & 20-21 September 2005 The Filipino Association for Mariners Employment, Inc. (FAME) conducted a seminar in coordination with the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) in line with their thrust for public service excellence and the improvement of institutional management and operation. It was designed to provide POEA officials and employees a better understanding of the maritime industry particularly in the Philippines. This was the result of various observations and discussions made about industry problems encountered at POEA; they saw that it was the best first measure to address the industry concerns. The seminar was pursued with two significant objectives, which includes; facilitate greater coordination between the POEA and FAME, thereby strengthening the relationships between the two partners; and increase the awareness of POEA personnel on the industry s concern and dealings. On the day itself, POEA officials and employees were in the hands of able men and women who have acquired expertise, through research and hands-on experience in their respective fields of the maritime industry. The nature of the maritime industry and the employment & protection of seafarers were the two (2) major topics discussed. They learned about the seafaring industry in general, from its history to a discussion of what a ship is all about, to the relationship between the shipowner, charterer, shipmanager, manning agent and operator, and the importance of providing the seafarers with ample protection as they go about their daily activities while working in the ship Long been questions and why-wonders of POEA personnel and staffs at the Seabased Employment Accreditation and Processing Center (SEAPC) on the significance of the on-time deployment of crew, standard crewing procedures, necessity of proper documentation of seafarers, were answered also during the seminar. That time, they learned and realized why time is of the essence in dealing with the shipping industry and the overseas workers of the sea. The seminar was actively participated by the POEA officials and employees from their respective section; hence, it drew 121 participants for four (4) days. Participants find it a very productive and enriching experience. Seeing the fruitful result of this action, surely FAME will continue its goals to achieve more developments in the Philippine Maritime Industry.

A SALUTE TO THE FILIPINO SEAFARERS CONCERT" Time has been revealing Philippines how great and dignified the Filipino Seafarers are. At the birth of sea trade, Filipinos showed close inclination to the sea that made them susceptible to marine occupation. Until various developments in the maritime industry emerged, still Filipinos proved their cleverness. The Philippine maritime industry never ignored this fact. Regarded as the world s largest supplier of seafarers in the global merchant fleet, no one can ever deny that our seafarers are doing great in their profession. They were able to distinguish themselves among others to emerge the best. The Filipino Association for Mariners Employment, Inc. (FAME), the largest association of manning companies in the Philippines which is composed of ninety-two (92) regular member-companies and six (6) associate members has been existing and working for the development, promotion and progress of the maritime industry for thirty-one (31) years now. And this fact was never strange to them. Thus, all projects, endeavors and activities held were heading on the objective of promoting more and improving the maritime industry in the Philippines. Regarded the seafarers as the major player and the most important element in the maritime industry, they have been working also to support and protect them. Knowing the integrity they have given to the Philippines by being the most preferred crew among other nationalities because of the character and excellent performance, they saw that it is time to return them favor for what they were achieving. Considering that the yearly Maritime Week Celebration is on the list of coming scheduled events, FAME thought of holding a special event for the Filipino seafarers. As they take the lead in a step to give the Filipino Seafarers the importance they richly deserve by honoring their efforts and sacrifices, they have found a new partner to work with to achieve this goal. SMART Communications Inc., one of the biggest telecommunications company in the Philippines who have been creating and developing effective communication measure with special mention to the seafarers, was timely then looking for a way to promote their product intended especially for the seafarers to enable them to connect with their love ones. Knowing FAME, they immediately approach them to present their proposal. As they meet and started to know the objectives of each party, they agreed to come up with one project that will uplift the image of the seafarers as well as thank them for their efforts and great achievements. For SMART, they want to thank the seafarers for patronizing their products and services as well as let them know that they have a new efficient product for them, which is the SMART Link Satellite Services. The project was finally decided to be a concert. A grand concert which is entitled Ang Marino. Bow! A Salute to the Filipino Seafarers Concert which aims to pay tribute to the Filipino Seafarers regarded as the modern day heroes as well as honor them for their great contributions to the Philippines. The concert s concept is to depict the life of a seafarer, reveal his thoughts, his sentiments, stuff he has put up with, the things he sacrificed, the importance of their profession thus significantly contributing to the country s economy. Mostly songs but combined with dances, stunts, sketches, vignettes are the creative devices that will be used to bring the message across. FAME in its close coordination with other maritime associations, immediately extended the project to the maritime associations to make it a maritime industry activity. And it was well cooperated. Indeed, the maritime industry stakeholders jointly worked for the success of the project. To commence the Ang Marino. Bow! Concert, A Pre-Concert Cocktail was hosted by FAME, Inc. last 15 September 2005 at La Azotea, Casa Marinero, NYK-FIL Bldg., Gen. Luna and Sta. Potenciana Sts., Intramuros, Manila which aimed to thank the over-all sponsor of the said concert, SMART Communications, Inc.; as well as to give special night for all maritime stakeholders and government officials to untie from their busy days. Nyoy Volante with his band enchanted everyone with his lovely songs. And to entertain and excite the audiences, one of the sexy girls from Viva Hot Babes, Maui Taylor hosted the night with Vince Ripoll of Magsaysay Maritime Corporation. The cocktail was highlighted by the presence of Capt. Gregorio S. Oca, POEA Administrator Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz and representatives from SMART Communications Inc. A Souvenir Program was also published to commemorate the historic concert and was launched during the concert itself. The Concert was finally held on 24 September 2005 at the Araneta Coliseum, Cubao Quezon City. It was successfully held and well attended by the people in the maritime industry. Philippine artists including Nyoy Volante, Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcasid, Kyla, Arnel Ignacio, Ruby Rodriguez, Aiza Seguerra, Chynna Hortaleza and Richard Gutierrez graced the concert. Selected talents from member-companies of FAME also participated as Marino Idols and Marino Choir. They were very much applauded for their great performance. It was made more special with the message given by the representatives from SMART Communications Inc. in the person of Mr. Mon Isberto, Head of SMART Public Access Department and Ms. Josephine J. Francisco, President of FAME, Inc. extending the gratitude of each party for the good partnership in achieving each goal hand in hand. What strikes most the heart of the seafarers and the maritime industry as well, was the statement of Ms. Josephine Francisco in her speech which runs, At sa ating mga minamahal na mga marino, sana po y nagustuhan ninyo itong aming munting handog sa inyo at sa inyong mga pamilya and together let us work to protect our position as the biggest supplier of seafarers to the world s merchant marine fleet today and beyond. . As long as there are seas and oceans there will always be ships that will carry trade and commerce across the globe. And who else will do this? No other than our great Filipino seafarers known to the world for their hardwork, technical competence, discipline, integrity, loyalty, adaptability, and performance par excellence. At pagsinabing world-class na marino walang iba kundi Pinoy pa rin! Indeed, it s true that this momentous event was all dedicated to all of you Filipino seafarers.
