Message from the President

The “D” Day of the National Convention tagged as “the unConvention” has finally come!

June 2-3 will make history for future L&D generations to look back to and talk about.  We are all excited!  This is a dream come true, way back in 2010 when the Board at that time opted to have our first convention outside of Luzon, in Davao, and it was a stunning success. I voted for Boracay because it offers relaxation and fun plus the powdery sand island seemed to give learning a boost. I understood the constraints of then Chair of the National Convention in 2010. At that time, our machinery was limited; there were lot of challenges to hurdle.  However, five years after, despite the evolving challenges, this time we went for a stretch.

With the 2015 Board of Trustees’ (BOT) relentless pursuit to respond to our rapidly changing environment, for new ways, new trends new opportunities, the Board decided to make a resolve and take this challenge. It is a challenge worth taking. Our members and the L&D practitioners deserve nothing less. So Boracay here we come!

The 2016 NC Chair Ian Colorina, brought fresh perspective and millennial flavor into it.  This year’s “National unConvention” is the first to break the monotony of conventions and conferences. The Programs Committee Chair Nancy Gotidoc will excite you with the lineup of speakers, the “who’s who” in the industry and authority of the topics they will share.

Last June 29, Sunday, the Philippine Daily Inquirer published an article written by our member and editorial committee volunteers, Marby Tabungar and April Salonga, about the trending technology that empowers L&D practitioners.  It was just a taste test of what you will learn and experience in this “unConvention” plenary and concurrent sessions.

The society honors organizations, and L & D Professionals who have shown proof of extraordinary achievements in our field of practice, so be in your beach-glam attire in the evening of Day 1 for the Gawad Maestro Awards.

I am happy that we received a good number of nominations and acceptance to run for the board this year.  May I encourage our members to participate in the election.  Please cast your votes and be counted.  The 2016 BOT election will be done online so members who may not be present can cast their votes wherever they are.

We understand the constraints of travel for some for our members who can’t make it to the convention so, we desire to make it fair for all as we will make all materials and documents available on our website. So, watch out for it!
