QUOTA International Pampanga, one of the most active women's organizations in Pampanga, has once again opened a new chapter in its long years of service as a civic organization as it formally installed its new set of officers with much pomp and pageantry at the King's Royale Hotel.
The program was even more stunning with the presence of Pampanga's crème dela crème women of fine pedigree. Outgoing President Vilma Caluag could not help but be proud of having finished a fruitful year of Quota leadership for it was now time to transfer the leadership to President Myra Manabat.

The yearly event, which is always filled with feminine rites, was attended by no other than district Governor Carolina Piad, who urged the Quota Pampanga members to invigorate their local recruitment to further realize the fulfillment of helping more beneficiaries.
Past district Governor Lin Liboro, who was guest speaker highlighted the importance of "spicing-up" the activities of Quota in the province and make them more socially relevant not only to the lives of beneficiaries but also to the members as well.
With a motto of "We Share," Quotarians are known especially for their service to disadvantaged women and children and deaf, hard-of-hearing, and speech-impaired people. Serving and encouraging others, developing friendships, and promoting international understanding are values shared by all Quota members, according to Liboro.
"Quota is not merely an organization that does social work for women and children. It should be an organization where women should fine meaning into their lives and existence. I urge the new leadership to make Quota Pampanga a significant part of the lives of its members," Liboro said.
Meanwhile, the leadership of Myra Manabat is expected to bring in a new year of more social works and projects for women and children. She is accompanied by a strong line-up of new officers which include Purification Bamba (president-elect), Jenifer Bonifacio (vice-president), Marilou Garbes (corporate secretary), Zelinda Soto (recording secretary), Gertrudes Bondoc (secretary), Alma Gamboa (assistant treasurer), Rose Yabut (auditor) and Nimya Yalung and Alma Mercado (public relations officers).
The night ended with a solemn promise among all members and officers to continue the legacy of service of Quota International. It was a promise that was capped with a whole night of band music and ballroom dancing.
