  3. I don’t know that the organizations involved in the 2010 LSP Annual Conference and General Assembly (19-20 August 2010) to be held at Ateneo de Manila University will go out of their way to extend an invitation to individual persons, such as you. My suggestion is for you to visit these websites for information on how you may register to attend:

  4. Dear Mr. Padre,

    Thank you for your kind attention. I am just concerned with my request to attend on official business; the invitation is a requirement for approval. I just wish the CHED memo and that from http://www.lsphil.org/events.html would suffice.

    Thanks again and God bless!
