Welcome to the VMA Global College Alumni Association Inc.

A Historical Background
The association started as just an informal gathering of graduates who wished to revive fond memories of their academy years and share new events in each other’s lives. They called their association “VMA Alumni Association
On the first-recorded reunion held at the SPECTRUM REVIEW CENTER, it was suggested that the association be formalized -  draft rules, regulations, constitutions and By-laws, and eventually register in the Security and Exchange Commission and Engr. Edmundo Arias was then appointed as the Alumni Adviser.
The purpose of the association was three-folds:

  1. To be of service to Visayan Maritime Academy
  2. To collaborate with the government and NGO’s in programs, projects and activities that will promote, develop and maintain the physical, social and cultural well-being of the VMAers and
  3. To promote creative ways of education and initiative, undertake priority programs for the wholistic development of the youth, and underprivileged families. 

 
Several meetings followed and the minutes of the meeting dated 1999 shows that the constitution and by-laws was unanimously approved; thus, the “Visayan Maritime Academy Alumni Foundation, Incorporated.” was born
