Barangay secretaries
seminar held

A team-building seminar for barangay secretaries was conducted by the Department of the Interior and Local Government-Bacolod and the Liga nga mga Barangay Bacolod Chapter recently at Middle Town Inn, a press release from the organizers said.

The seminar was attended by 55 out of 61 barangay secretaries in Bacolod, aimed at building better rapport among them and enhancing their skills and knowledge in performing their functions.

Dino Ponsaran, OIC director of DILG-Bacolod, said that if the barangay secretary is effective in his or her functions, more than half of the workload will be done.

He admitted that most of the barangay secretaries do not even know their specific job functions, and this results in poor performance.

Councilor Mona Dia Jardin, president of the local Liga, said one of her projects is the implementation of enhancement programs for barangay secretaries to assist them in organizing their own ranks.

The participants also received course module on the documentation aspect of their functions, such as composition of letters and reports, and creation of barangay resolutions and ordinances, the press release added.*
