CDA CARAGA PRS MONITORING REPORT

By: Niño Rosil C. Bantayan

The first step a certain group will have to comply before it can be registered as cooperative is to conduct or attend a Pre-Registration Seminar (PRS) by the training team of Cooperative Development Authority (CDA). This is to make sure that would-be cooperators will know the basics and technicalities of organizing a cooperative, more so, being an actual member.

Adapting to the safety health protocol of the new normal, the CDA had issued an Office Order No. 2020-07 series of 2020 with subject “Alternative Mode of Conducting Pre-Registration Seminar to Respective Cooperatives”. The order supports the safety measures that prohibits mass gatherings to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

For the record, this is the CDA Caraga Regional office report on the PRS accomplishment beginning January up to August of this year. For the first semester, January-June, CDA Caraga has conducted a total of twenty-nine (29) PRS for potential cooperatives (see table 1); and a total of 8 PRS conducted for July to August (see table 2).
