PIA Press Release

Central Visayas confab of gov't info officers underway

by Rachelle M. Nessia

Cebu City (6 November) -- Over 60 information officers from all over Central Visayas gathered in Cebu City yesterday for the first day of the three-day Consultative Conference and General Assembly of the Regional Association of Development Information Officers in Region 7.

The activity, now on its 18th year, is an annual gathering done by RADIO-7 with the Cebu Association of City and Municipal Public Information Officers serving as this year's host to the regional activity.

The conference kicked off with the welcome ceremonies led by CACAMPIO President Nelso J. Ares who welcomed the information officers from the provinces of Bohol, Negros Oriental, Siquijor and Cebu.

This was followed by the Opening Remarks from Minerva BC Newman, OIC-Regional Director of the Philippine Information Agency Region 7, who stressed the vital role played by government information officers especially at the grassroots level.

Newman said that this year's convention has a three-pronged objective: to enhance camaraderie among government communicators, equip communicators with the thrusts of the administration in terms of skills and information, and create a Central Visayas link. "This link will bridge the current dividing gap of information between the government and the grassroots," she stressed.

The first day also saw the participating information officers holding their 18th general assembly where the group reviewed its Constitution and By Laws and held an election of officers and board of directors.

A battery of high ranking government officials are expected to give discussions on current critical issues on the second day of the convention November 6.

The line-up of the second day's speakers is expected to be led by Chief Presidential Management Staff Sec. Cerge M. Remonde who is scheduled to discuss the Food and Energy Security in the country.

Also expected to grace the day-long discussions tomorrow is Deputy National Security Adviser Luis "Chavit" Singson who will talk on the government's Internal Security Plan. (PIA/rmn) [top]
