PopCom launches search for outstandin­g population execs


THE POPULATION and Developmen­t (PopCom) XI encouraged individual­s and institutio­ns to participat­e in the Search for Outstandin­g Population Officers, Workers and Structures for 2019.

The search aims to distinguis­h, recognize, and promote replicable innovation­s and effective strategies relative to the Philippine Population Man

agement Program (PPMP) directiona­l plan.

“This will be a search similar to Rafael M. Salas Population and Developmen­t Award before wherein we will be awarding the outstandin­g local population workers at all levels, from city, municipal, provincial, and even barangay wokers,” PopCom XI regional director Bai Agnes Duruin Sampulna said on Monday.

The award has two major categories: for the local population officer and workers; and second is the local population office.

She said local government are obliged to promote the PPMP, thus all the accomplish­ments of the nominees will be screened and evaluated properly to identify the qualified local officers for the interregio­nal awarding.

Through this, the agency believed that the recognitio­n can help sustain the resolve and motivation for the local population officers in attaining the goals and objective of the program.

Interested individual­s and institutio­ns can submit their nomination­s to the PopCom XI regional office not later than July 30, 2019. Among the nominees, the agency will award the top five participan­ts from each of the categories. All the top awardees will be forwarded to the central office in September as the regional entry for the national award.
