October 10, 2009, Daet, Camarines Norte: No doubt Bulanenos have a reason once more to be proud after the LGU’s Municipal Cooperative Development Council (MCDC) was proclaimed second Best Performing Cooperative Development Council in the Bicol Region this year. It was given during the 2009 Bicol Region Coop-Congress held at the CNSC in Daet, Camarines Norte this day.
The Provincial Cooperative Development Council of Camarines Sur got the highest award, and the Camarines Norte PCDC was third. The period covered by the search was from January up to the present. There was no categorization or levels for the search. It included all cooperative development councils in the municipal, city and provincial level. The aim of the search was to find out the performance of local cooperative development councils in terms of developing and strengthening cooperatives and the cooperative movement in the local communities.
Former Provincial Board Member Joy L. Dellomas-Fundano, adviser of the Bulan MCDC, received for the LGU the Certificate of Recognition from Maritess T. Pasa, chairperson of the Bicol RCDC, and Atty. Ma. Lourdes P. Pacao, Regional Director of the Cooperative Development Authority.
