World Congress IV

"It's A Global Reunion Celebration"
Friday, May 23, 2003 to Sunday, May 25, 2003
Marriott Crystal Gateway, Washington, DC
With the venue shifting back to anywhere outside of Philippine borders, Washington, DC was picked despite the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001. Holding the WC-IV Kickoff Celebration even before WC-III had transpired, the DLSAA - Washington DC Chapter, with ample support from the members of the National Capital Area Chapter, was already well-prepared to host the Congress' fourth occurrence.

Like any other World Congress, the event was graced with the presence of guest speakers and Lasallian Brothers. Plenary sessions, fellowship activities, a celebration mass, and a mini-business expo filled the schedule of the delegates. The delegates and guests were also treated to a sightseeing tour of the US Capital.

The WC-IV resulted in Jose "Lito" Tanjuatco being re-elected as the DLSAA President and Giovanni "Jing" Olivares as the Vice-President for Finance and Treasurer. WC-IV also made a net profit of more than $6,000.
