WELCOME REMARKS OF PRES. BACTAD DURING THE 1ST POAP HUMAN RESOURCE FORUMOctober 2, 2013
Good afternoon and welcome to the 1st POAP Human Resource Forum: “ Taking the Lead in Redefining the Role of the Public HR”, a collaborative effort between the University of Makati and the Personnel Officers Association of the Philippines.
Your excellencies, Sen. Aquilino Pimentel, Asec Celso Santiago, Sen., Dir. Maria Victoria M. Salazar, our presentors: Prof. Pompeyo C. Adamos and Mrs. Grace May A. Vergara, my POAP Family, my adopted UMAK family, esteemed friends, ladies and gentlemen.
The UMAK needs no introduction – a public or government university par excellence in the field of public education for the youth and the young professionals. Additionally, it is the only public university, to my mind, whose state-of-the art learning laboratories and especially well-maintained physical facilities parallel none.
For the information of all, the POAP, the HR organization of the Philippine bureaucracy, has been for the last 56 years, quietly and assuredly, painting the landscape to professionalize the public servants engaged in developing and empowering the lowly government worker into assertive leadership roles.
Throughout the years, POAP has adapted themes relevant to the times. Two years ago, our national conference talked on Trailblazing Towards Public Accountability with notably Sec. Sonny Coloma leading and inspiring us along the “Matuwid na Daan.” Last year, we asked ourselves if we are on “Track Towards Public Accountability”. Gov. Mujiv Hataman, Com. May Fernandez, Chairman Cesar Sarino, among others, discussed our report cards.
This year we continue on our quest to empower our human resources with the theme: “Developing the Leader in Me.”
