Balweg: CUBC faithful to its mandate up to yearend and beyond

THE Cooperative Union of Baguio City (CUBC) successfully held the Records Management cum Succession Planning Seminar-Workshop it had scheduled for December 4-5 (Thursday - Friday), 2014, with venue at Dad’s Place, Buhagan (Bokawkan) Road, Baguio City.

According to BOD Chairperson Engr. Susan Angaga, the seminar-workshop is in line with the requirements of Republic Act 9520, its Implementing Rules and Regulations and CDA Memo Circular 2011-14.

Records management covers the basic competencies required of a member of the Audit, Election, Ethics, Mediation and Conciliation committees, Secretary and Treasurer in maintaining the important records of a cooperative. The Succession Planning seminar-workshop aimed to ensure that there are leaders and talents that can turn the vision of a cooperative into a reality, enjoin them to formulate an effective succession plan that will form part of the official records of a cooperative.

Despite tight yearend schedules, thirty-seven (37) official participants were registered for the two-day activities. Attendance was closely monitored by the CDA (Cooperative Development Authority). There were three modules tackled. Module 1, Activities in Records Management, gave the overview of records management , records creation and control, mail administration, files administration, records disposition administration, records center administration, archives management, security of records. Module 2, Disposition of Records, dealt with records disposition programs, inventory and appraisal of records and policies, which include retention, preservation and transfer of records, retention periods, disposition schedules, roles, and responsibilities and accountabilities. Module 3, Security of Records, covered record security, including hazards, factors affecting security records, and security chains; protecting record and documents including personnel, location and facilities, and management support.

Succession Planning, handled by resource person Rosalie Abarquez, gave a glance at the understanding of workforce generations, concept and purpose of succession planning, elements of an effective succession planning, identifying critical positions and critical people in a cooperative, and, finally, an actual formulation of a succession plan.

The CUBC cordially thanks all who are giving unwavering support to its programs and advocacies. For the year 2014, it was able to conduct a total of ten (10) subsidized trainings to the marginalized cooperatives thus giving them equal access to the CDA mandatory trainings. With the stron g help of such donors and sympathizers, the Union established the Gender Equality and Development Committee that led to the successful launching of the Educational Forum on Gender Equality, Women’s Right and Character Development for Cooperatives on May 19, 2014 where a total of of 120 participants from various Baguio City cooperatives benefited. Beside these mentioned, CUBC was able to launch the Wellness Forum on Cervical and Prostate Cancer Awareness and Gender Sensitivity in the Workplace last October 1, 2014 at the Rice Section of the Public Market. There, about 500 vendors received free eyeglasses and vitamins while a medical mission was carried out. To help sustain the enthusiastic momentum in community work, the CUBC approved launching a “Dinner-for-a-Cause” on December 5, 2014, at the same Dad’s Place. A Fun Raffle draw of paid tickets from limited willing members and friends would culminate in the distribution of surely attractive prizes to make the affair memorable indeed. Not to forget, a very special thanks to lecturer-trainer Dr. Peter Dumaguing, who, as attested by ever-ready backup lecturer Sally Abarquez , prefers to be called simply “Manong Pete/Pedro” for generously tendering precious time to share equally precious bits or fruits of knowledge and experience to a service-committed audience. We would like to say this also to the wonderful educational partners at the UC/BCF Coop, like Ramir and that Doctor who is also an Herbolario. This from their own mouths, "For the cause of cooperativism, Sally’s invitation is a command." How edifying!
