Agusan del Sur information network expanded

by David M. Suyao

AGUSAN DEL SUR, Jan. 27 (PIA) -- The Provincial Government of Agusan del Sur (PGAS) started to expand its information network with the conduct of a two-day training on basic communication skills with designated department information officers as participants in order to equip them with knowledge on how to communicate their respective programs and accomplishments to satisfy the need of the Agusanons to know what the provincial government is doing.

According to Provincial Public Information Officer Alfredo Plaza, the two-day seminar workshop aims to improve the performance of the various offices through effective, credible and attainable information programs. It will also ensure to provide timely, relevant and adequate development-oriented information to the media, local government units and the general public.

“Aside from those I mentioned, we believe the training will enable our department information officers establish a good media relations through information related activities among practicing journalists. The training will also equip the participants promote the provincial government’s development thrust through tri-media facilities and assist in the facilitation of the creation of PGAS information linkages with various sectors and NGO’s in the community, while maintaining linkages with media, municipal government offices and national government agencies,” Plaza said.

Not only data gathering as materials for information or news releases were taught to the participants. Demonstration on video production and camera handling were also introduced in order that the participants will have knowledge to produce raw materials to feed to NBN Agusan del Sur for television release. Together, basic news writing for radio, TV and print were also introduced in order to deliver comprehensive information to wider scope.

While skills on basic media practices were introduced, communication planning on specific communication problems within the participants’ offices were demonstrated so that specific solutions and messages can be applied to address the communication problem.

“This is just an initial move to expand the PGAS communication network. Following this will be almost the same training that we will conduct for the municipal and barangay information officers in order that we can maximize the delivery of information that our people are craving,” Plaza said.
