Vice President Aaron Sigrah, Secretary Karleen M. Samuel, Treasurer Lydia Tibon and members of the PIALA Executive Board join me in extending wishes for a very Merry Christmas to all the HLA members, families and friends from all over the globe. As a partner association in education and training for the development of libraries and librarians in the Pacific, PIALA want to thank HLA for the past years to be part of this very important mission. We send our warmest wishes for a happy holiday and renew commitment in the New Year 2012. Our sincerest wishes are to battle together to find ways and opportunities to work together to be updated with the advance education and training of our membership. My fellow PIALA Officers and Executive Board Members join me, therefore, to wish HLA members a Christmas abundant with blessings of health, peace and happiness. And may the blessing of Christmas also enrich your lives and your loved ones' the New Year through.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Atarino A Helieisar, PIALA President
