Basic Cooperative Seminar Held in Davao & Zambales

Two Basic Cooperative Seminars (BCS) were held simultaneously in Davao City and San Antonio, Zambales on June 22, 2016. Eighty-one (81) associate members, 38 from Davao and 43 from San Antonio, were upgraded to regular status after successfully completing the seminar of their respective branches.

The BCS is a CDA-mandated activity required for all associate members to undertake before being upgraded to regular status. It aims to develop responsible regular members who have the right to vote and be voted during elections of the Cooperative. The BCS Program is designed to deepen the awareness and knowledge of members about ACDI MPC and the worldwide Cooperative Movement – its history, principles, and current developments.

Meanwhile, a consultation meeting proceeded after each BCS to serve as a forum for members’ feedback and recommendations on improving ACDI MPC’s products and services. Members were also apprised on current developments and clarifications on certain policies and product offerings.
