BAGUIO CITY, Feb. 10 (PIA) — The Philippine Military Academy will hold its  yearly alumni homecoming this   February  12-13  adopting  the hybrid concept  in view of the prevailing corona virus disease(COVID-19) pandemic.

PMA Information Officer Major Cherryl Tindog said this year’s homecoming will be different from the traditional conduct of the event as only few alumni and the awardees will be physically present for a limited face to face interaction. Other alumni will participate via zoom video teleconferencing.

The PMA Alumni Association Incorporation has been allowed by the COVID-19 City Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) health protocol to have only 30 percent physical attendance. All attendees must present medical certificate with negative RT-PCR result and Travel Authority.

Tindog assured that the Academy is doing its very best to ensure that the inspiration of the alumni to the Cadet Corps of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the PMA community as a whole shall be deeply ingrained through this traditional activity while still adhering to all necessary safety and health protocols during the entire conduct of the event.
