Executive Board: 2023-2024

President : Brandon Price (He/Him)

Hey…you there! Yeah, you! I want to officially welcome you to the 2023-2024 Executive board page. I’m Brandon and I’m so grateful that I get to serve as your FCA President. I’m a senior majoring in Electrical Engineering, and joined FCA my Sophomore year. I had the privilege of serving as FIND D6’s National Director last year, as well as FCA’s D6 Representative the year before that, where I got to truly feel the love of our greater Filipino Community in both the DMV and East Coast. When I’m not FCSlaying, I’ll either be cooking it up in the kitchen, watching a movie or show at home, or pulling an all-nighter somewhere on campus. Whether you’re coming in as a sophomore, when I joined, a freshman, or an upperclassman, I hope you can find a sense of belonging and community with us.
