MESSAGE OF HONORABLE NELON B. ALINDOGAN | Member, Board of Administrators COOPERATIVE DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY
I am very grateful for having been given a chance to take part in this unique privilege of serving the Filipino people through government service. Few were given the chance to serve this institution (Cooperative Development Authority) and receiving such rare opportunity is a singular honor for me and I consider this as a crowning glory in my career.
There is now another billionaire co-op in CAR. And it is located in the place least expected. It is not found in places that are way more developed and progressive such as Baguio City or Benguet, but in Tabuk City, Kalinga. Co-ops in these “wealthier” places caught flat footed. While they were basking in their affluence thinking they reached the pinnacle of success, somebody snuck in quietly and overtook them.
In May 2016, the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) issued Revenue Memorandum Circular (RMC) No. 54-2016 in response to CDA Memorandum Circular (MC) No. 2015-08 issued by the CDA in September 2015 on the guidelines governing the issuance of Certificate of Compliance (COC), in lieu of the CGS. A COC, as defined in this circular, is the certificate issued to all types of cooperatives after complying with the rules of the CDA, in lieu of the then CGS. Through the issuance of the said RMC, the BIR aims to inform cooperatives that all revenue issuances with provisions specifically mentioning the CGS are amended or modified to conform with the CDA MC.
It all started with a goal to help, to serve and to achieve a holistic development of people within all Barangays and Municipalities of Ilocos Sur thru unifying cooperative services. This goal was planted like a seed by the Archdiocese of Nueva Segovia thru the Archbishop of that time His Eminence Orlando Cardinal Quevedo and Msgr. Ambrose L. Cabildo. Today, that seed of ambition has grown full bloom and now being recognized as the NUEVA SEGOVIA CONSORTIUM OF COOPERATIVES.
