Verner Abella, becames the first president of USA Kappans Alumni Chapter. He has been instrumental in promoting the participation of the Kappans in USA and Canada in their capacities as active Kappans alumni members. These members, who left the Philippines for greener pastures in the land of milk and honey, have organized themselves and become active partners to their local counterparts in achieving the goals of the organization. In addition, Verner’s personal crusade to put all Kappans in “one bus” has also attracted participation by other Kappans in Asia, Europe and the Middle East to get in touch with the Kappans mainstream.
