The Actors’ Guild or the Kapisanan ng mga Artistang Pilipino sa Pelikula at Telebisyon (KAPPT) elected its new set of officers which will be headed by Philip Salvador as president and Rez Cotez as chairman. The election was held at the new MOWELFUND office of the guild last Sunday, May 10.
The KAPPT elected its new 15 board members during its Christmas party at the Mowelfund Plaza last December 27.
Ten of the 15 newly elected board members were present during the election for the six KAPPT officers. With this quorum, the elected officers are the following:
Rez Cortez, chairman of the board; Philip Salvador, president; Tirso Cruz III, vice-president for internal affairs; Patrick dela Rosa, vice president for external affairs; Lyn Madrigal, secretary; and Gina Alajar, treasurer.
The other board directors are: Jeorge ‘ER’ Ejercito Estregan (outgoing president); Amay Bisaya (outgoing vice-president for external affairs); Baldo Marro; Rey Solo; Dick Israel; Jestoni Alarcon; Vic Felipe (outgoing chairman); Joko Diaz; and Pol Pepito. The last five were absent during the elections.
Eight incumbent directors, including Pagsanjan Mayor Ejercito Estregan, and seven new directors, led by actor Philip Salvador, won seats for the 15-member board of directors last December.
Aside from Mayor Estregan, those re-elected included Vic Felipe, Amay Bisaya, Rez Cortez, Baldo Marro, Dick Israel, Tirso Cruz III and Rey Solo.
