CDA Successfully Completes its 18th CDA Performance Assessment and Planning Conference

QUEZON CITY. – The Cooperative Development Authority recently conducted its 18th CDA Performance Assessment and Planning Conference (CPAPC) from 13 to 17 November 2023 at the Sequoia Hotel, Quezon City, with the theme “Lead with goals and assess to progress.” Organized by the Planning and Policy Development Division (PPDD), the biannual event was graced by heads and representatives from different units within the Head Office (HO) and Regional Extension Offices (REOs) and esteemed members of the Board of Directors (BOD).

The 18th CPAPC uniquely featured a thorough Management Review with the following objectives: (1) to ensure the continuing suitability, adequacy, effectiveness, and alignment with the strategic direction of the established Quality Management System (QMS); (2) to be adaptive to the changes brought by the challenges and opportunities of the organization, (3) to plan the performance target for FY 2024; and (3) to communicate the 2024 GAD Plan and Budget. With these overarching objectives, the five-day event served as a consultative mechanism for participants to raise organizational concerns and propose effective solutions to the plenary to address these.

Participants shared their insights and comments during plenary sessions
