Mayor Tiu who is the general legal counsel of the League of Municipalities of the Philippines was invited by Mayor Gerardo V. Calderon, Mayor's Development Center President and CEO and Mayor Ramon N. Guico, Jr. LMP National President and Chairman of MDC, to be a member of the faculty of the Center and to share his valuable expertise with his fellow mayors.
It was learned that Mayor Tiu is one of the twenty mayors from all over the country, who were identified and chosen to prepare for their new role as mayor mentors.
During the two-day training, the mayors are expected to discuss and share their ideas on the various topics which will become part of the Strategic Management in Local Governance Course. At the end of the training, the mayors are expected to finalize the training design and assignments.
This is in support to the League of Municipality's advocacy to capacitate its mayors to become effective development managers and instill good governance in all municipalities within the country wherein the Mayors Development Center is currently in the final phase of negotiations with the Hans Seidel Foundation and the German Agency for Technical Cooperation for the conduct of training for the local chief executives.
Mayor Calderon, MDC President and CEO, informed that the training activities are part of the comprehensive program on capacity development for the municipalities that will be crafted by LMP and MDC.
What makes the training activities different from those being offered by other training institutions is that this program will be crafted and implemented by award-winning local chief executives and other experts in the field of local governance, the MDC President and CEO said. (PIA 8) [top]
