RD Cunanan in his message encouraged the participants to learn the concepts, principles, rules, and guidelines that will be discussed by the Resource Speakers. He emphasized the importance of the topics to build a strong foundation of the concepts, principles, laws, rules, and guidelines to ensure that cooperative officers are knowledgeable and confident while performing their respective functions. RD Cunanan challenged the participants to the Bookkeeping Training to work on improved efficiency in the recording of the coops’ financial transactions.
