Visayas PPA Chapter

Visayas PPA Chapter

Above are two photographs from the workshop on Strategic Leadership for Population, Development and Reproductive Health Champions where the PPA Visayas Chapter was launched last May 20, 2006 at the MBA Executive Room of the University of San Carlos, Cebu City. Not all participants in the workshop are members of PPA, but all were given invitations or application forms for PPA membership. Many pledged to join, following consultation with or approval from their respective schools and organizations.

The following are the newly elected PPA Visayas Chapter Officers:
Coordinator and Representative: Socorro Gultiano
Co-coordinator: Alice Lim
Secretary: Regina Salvador
Treasurer: Josephine Avila

Three of the officers (Dr. Gultiano, Alice Lim, Josephine Avila) are old members of PPA. Alice joined the PPA during the last General Assembly meeting in Manila. She is involved in NGO work and is sometimes an affiliate of the Office of the Population Studies (OPS) . The secretary, Regina Salvador, is a new member from POPCOM Region 7 (she's the lady in red-striped blouse
and polka-dot skirt). The officers will be holding a meeting next week to prepare a plan of activities for the chapter.
