R.A. 9510 FORUM FOR THE COOPERATIVES IN BULACAN
Before the beta testing soft launch last April 28, 2017, the Credit Information Corporation (CIC) had one of its most important engagements with the Cooperatives of Bulacan through the efforts of CIBI Information Inc.'s close coordination with the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), Provincial Cooperative Development Council (PCDC), and the Provincial Government of Bulacan.
An information session and open forum was hosted last April 20, 2017 at the Barcie International Center.
Marieta P. Hwang, Regional Director of the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA), opened the session with a strong statement; "Ignorance of the law excuses no one".
Definitely, this had set the tone for the evening, in reference to the absolute necessity for cooperatives to comply with the data submission mandate of Republic Act No. 9510.
The event was participated by Credit Information Corporation delegates, Jaime Garchitorena, President and CEO and Atty. Carlo Murcia, Legal Consultant; and Goldy Baroa from CIBI Information, Inc.
Despite the concentration of the audience honed in on the specifics of the law and methods for compliance, the afternoon wasn't without levity, especially after CIBI announced that they would assist the cooperatives of Bulacan in the formation of numerous technical workshops to facilitate immediate compliance, free of charge.
