Tampco, the most successful coop in northern Luzon, elects new set of directors

by Larry Lopez

TABUK, Kalinga, Mar 1 (PIA) – At least 6,000 registered members of Tabuk Multi-purpose Cooperative (TAMPCO) trooped to the Tabuk public gymnasium over the weekend and elected its new set of board of directors (BOD) for 2011-2013.

Tampco general Mmnager Petra Baguiwen said the newly elected BOD members are Josephine Doctor, Rolando Banatao, Patricia Abibico, Jefferson Wandag, Gilbert Cawis, and Eddie Rodriguez.

The six comprise the second half of the 11-seat Tampco BOD, whose two-year term ended this 2010.

Election for the other five members shall take place in 2012, after their term shall terminate before March 2012. The five are Fr. Claudio Bagano, Fr. June Imbentan, Pastor de Jesus, and Valentina Atolba. There is one seat vacant as of now, Baguiwen said.

According to Baguiwen, the election this year is patterned after the ballot system in the May 10 national elections where names of candidates were printed on the ballots. The system, she said, was very efficient since voters only have to check names of their candidates, whose pictures also appear on the ballots.

Although the preparation of ballots entailed added work on the part of the cooperative’s election committee, the counting of votes was easier and orderly, making the results available in the same day, Baguiwen said.

Tampco’s BOD is in-charge of making the policy of the cooperative founded in 1971 and is now claimed as one if not the largest and most successful in North Luzon.

Among its major services include credit and banking, inn and training center, pi-water station, funeral care and automated teller machine (ATM) service. * (PIA-CAR, Kalinga)
