The activity that used to have a big crowd of physical attendance, the Orientation of Cooperatives’ Mandatory Reports of the CDA Regional Office XI regularly held yearly is now made accessible through webinar, the new normal venue for seminars.
Held on February 17, 2021 via zoom platform at Kapihan sa CDA XI, the activity is attended by almost a hundred participants from Davao de Oro and Davao Oriental cooperatives and partners in the cooperative sector.
The webinar aims to re-orient the cooperatives of the mandatory reports and introduction of the Performance Audit Report (PAR) which includes the STEPS as standard in the evaluating the financial operation of a cooperative.
Resource Speakers of the activity are Cooperative Development Specialists (CDS) II Ms. Maria Christina Asela Figuera, CPA and Ms. Alyssa J. Gastardo of Davao de Oro, Ms. Sylveslyn B. Guillarte of Davao Oriental, Mr. Carl Boji Nazareno, Head of Regulation Unit, and Mr. Rhandy B. Corro, Head of CSF Unit and Acting Head of CRITS.
For cooperatives that do not have internet access, CDA partners from Provincial/City/Municipal Cooperative Development Offices of the said provinces facilitate the viewing of the webinar.
The activity is just the first of the four (4) series of webinars that CDA RXI scheduled for the whole month of February for the cooperatives in the whole Region. With a noted high audience reach of the 1st batch of participants, CDA expects an improved number of compliance on the submission of mandatory reports from the coops in the Region.
