Three members of the FilMasons Association of NSW, Inc. Australia were elected and advanced to the United Grand Lodge of New South Wales & Australian Capital Territory (UGL NSW & ACT) 11 June Quarterly Communications.
The three brethren elected and advanced at the Grand Lodge meeting held at the Sydney Masonic Centre are as follows:
VWBro Fidel Pamplona, Deputy Grand Pursuivant, was appointed as Grand Standard Bearer.
VWBro Manny Maniago, DGIW of District 28, was elected as Grand Pursuivant.
VWBro Zaldy Angeles, Grand Steward, was elected as Deputy Grand Pursuivant.
"Some Masonic Grand Lodges have an office known as the Grand Pursuivant. The office is unknown at the local Masonic lodge level. It is the Grand Pursuivant's duty to announce all applicants for admission into the Grand Lodge by their names and Masonic titles; to take charge of the jewels and regalia of the Grand Lodge; to attend all communications of the Grand Lodge, and to perform such other duties as may be required by the Grand Master or presiding officer."

In an article on the FilMasons' Blogazine, Bro Louie Reyes further said:
"These brethren, along with RWB Rey Porras, PJGW, (now Regional Grand Counsellor, Region 11 and a District Commander and a 33rd degree Sovereign Grand Inspector General (SGIG) of the The Supreme Council 33rd degree of the Ancient and Accepted Rite of Australia) are all veteran members of the UGL NSW & ACT's Ceremonial Team and their elections are a measure of the regard and respect in which they are held by the brethren in general and particularly those in Grand office."
