ACDI MPC Holds Basic Cooperative Seminar and Consultation at AFC
Pursuant to the Cooperative Development Authority requirements, ACDI MPC conducted a Basic Cooperative Seminar and Consultative Meeting last May 21, 2013 at AFC Officers’ Club Main Ballroom and Clarkdine Hall in Pampanga. The activity was divided into two parts; the Basic Cooperative Seminar in the morning and the Consultation in the afternoon. It was attended by the Cooperative officers coming from the ACDI Board of Directors; Top Management; the support group from the Head Office; CLAO branches; NLAO branches; and 46 associate members.
The seminar started at 0830H with the welcome remarks of ACDI President, BGen Alfredo Ramirez (Ret) and was followed with a briefing on ACDI MPC by Ms Irene Garcia, Head, CLAO. The seminar proper which was an orientation about cooperatives was conducted by Ms. Francine Luanne Collantes, Head of Training Center. The morning seminar ended with the distribution of certificates by the ACDI Board of Directors and Top Management. The entire seminar was concluded with the closing remarks of ACDI MPC Chariman, MGen Gilbert Llanto (Ret).
In the same manner, the first Consultation conducted turned out to be a success as our members actively participated in sharing their comments, suggestions, and proposed ideas during the Focus Group Discussion which was actively moderated by ACDI MPC Vice Chairman, MGen Rolando Capacia (Ret). At the end of the seminar, it was able to generate 46 new regular members. In addition to recognizing what ACDI really is and being aware of what it is able to offer to its stakeholders, it was also an opportunity for the new members to become aware of the roles, duties, and privileges as an ACDI MPC member.
