As the strong voice of the Cebu business com­mu­nity, the Cebu Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try con­tin­ues to es­tab­lish a strong­hold to pro­pel Cebu’s eco­nomic growth with its dy­namic, pas­sion­ate and com­mit­ted of­fi­cers.

The com­bined wis­dom and ex­pe­ri­en­tial acu­men of these of­fi­cers en­sure the con­tin­u­ing suit­abil­ity and ef­fec­tive­ness in all of the cham­ber’s un­der­tak­ings for the re­gion’s business growth.


Reg­is­tered as a non-stock, non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion, CCCI was in­cor­po­rated and domi­ciled in the Repub­lic of the Philip­pines. Its pur­pose is to pro­mote and up­hold the eco­nomic in­ter­ests of its mem­bers and the Cebu City com­mu­nity par­tic­u­larly in the fields of com­merce, trade, in­dus­try and agri­cul­ture.

CCCI’s op­er­a­tional sus­tain­abil­ity fos­ters through the ac­tive par­tic­i­pa­tion and max­i­mum ef­forts of the business le­gends, ex­ec­u­tives and en­trepreneurs who serve as pol­icy-mak­ing body — - the Board of Trustees.

The Board of Trustees en­sures that the poli­cies are ob­served, up­dated and con­sis­tent with the Cham­ber con­sti­tu­tion and by­laws. They for­mu­late the thrusts and strate­gies, rat­i­fies ini­tia­tives and pro­grams in­clud­ing projects, work plans, ac­tiv­i­ties and bud­gets.

BOT mem­bers ap­prove part­ner­ships, agree­ments, spon­sor­ships and autho­rize the Pres­i­dent and/or des­ig­nate sig­na­to­ries and ex­er­cises over­sight re­spon­si­bil­ity over Cham­ber re­sources such as fi­nances and prop­er­ties.

Trustees are elected to rep­re­sent the con­cerns of their sec­tor, ad­dress is­sues and bot­tle­necks and in­no­vate strate­gies and ap­proaches for de­vel­op­ment and progress.

In this re­gard, the cham­ber ex­tends its sin­cer­est thanks and pro­found grat­i­tude the out­go­ing trustees who un­selfishly shared their ex­em­plary con­tri­bu­tion in bring­ing business to the next level:

•Fran­cis L. Dy, Green­world LED So­lu­tions, Inc. Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor.

•Ed­win V. Ortiz, Able Ser­vices, Inc. Pres­i­dent and CEO

•Ar­chi­tect Ben­jamin S. Avila, Prin­ci­pal Ar­chi­tect

•Jimmy Chua, AVP & Business Head CRB Visayas Philip­pine Long Dis­tance Tele­phone Com­pany (PLDT)

Trustee Dy rep­re­sents the trade sec­tor, Trustees Ortiz and Archt. Avila for both in the ser­vice sec­tor and Trustee Chua, the ICT sec­tor.

To date, there are 20 trustees in the Cham­ber Board headed by the CCCI Pres­i­dent Me­lanie C. Ng.

Come Fe­bru­ary 2018, CCCI will hold its an­nual elec­tion for the Board of Trustees po­si­tion. Open po­si­tions will be filled in through next year’s BOT elec­tion.
