Co-ops Fed Holds 10th Annual GA and Elections
Tuesday, March 17, 2015
Twenty-two (22) active primary cooperative-affiliate members of the CFC Cooperatives Federation (CCF) represented by 44 delegates convened last February 21, 2015 at the Tekton Entre Multipurpose Cooperative Center, Cebu for the 10th General Assembly of the Federation.

The guest speaker at the assembly was Ellen Limocon, General Manager of Lamac Multipurpose Cooperative, considered one of the pillars of cooperativism. Limocon shared how she was able to “move mountains”, so to speak, with the various agricultural and industrial ventures that their coop has implemented in its 23 branches all over the Visayas regions. LMPC is a multi-awarded cooperative in the local, national and international level. Limocon stressed that “to be successful in all our dealings with the members of our coop, it is important that we put God at the center.” Ms. Limocon, unit leader of the CFC South Sector in Cebu, also shared her strategy for winning the hearts of delinquent member-borrowers.

Instead of pushing a co-op case against a delinquent member, she relies on the power of prayer and worship. This act of piety has succeeded. Delinquent members, more often than not, choose to activate their coop account rather than go through the hassle of going to court, an unattractive proposition because these often result in severance of personal relationships.

At the same assembly, the CCF board and officers reported their 2014 accomplishments, among them:
  • the transfer of office to the CFC Global Mission Center in Cubao, QC;
  • launch of the CCF website (www.cfc-ccf.org) and the Facebook page (www.facebook.com/coopsfed);
  • conduct of training on the following topics: Conflict Management, Strategic Planning, Basic Cooperative Course, Gender & Development and Trainor’s Training;
  • the first Regional Conference open to non-CCF members held in Davao City last April 3-5, 2014, attended by 54 participants from different Mindanao cooperatives;
  • CCF partnership with MB Life Insurance Co. Inc. for life insurance coverage resulting in 16 families being provided with a total of P950,000.000 in death benefits in 2014;
  • CCF became a member of the Philippine Cooperative Center and Metro South Cooperative Bank;
  • CCF and its member-primaries participated in the different CFC Building the Church of the Poor (BCOP) activities. 

Victor Hizon of CoFC Manila presented the 2015 plans and program including the budget and the same were ratified by the General Assembly, giving emphasis on the following programs:
  • Customer Satisfaction - enhance/ improve stakeholders, client and member satisfaction, develop social benefit and participate in the social programs of CFC.
  • Learning and Growth - enhance the capability of CCF leaders and staff and member-primary BOD, officers and members.
  • CFC Relationship - increase presence/knowledge about cooperatives as a component of the
  • Social Development program under BCOP.
  • Finance Perspective - attain financial stability.
  • Internal Business Process - active participation of member primaries in the Federation.

The election of the new set of officers was conducted during the assembly. The officers once more elected Victor Hizon of CoFC Manila to lead the federation for another two years. Elected with him were the remaining members of the Board of Directors, namely Edwin Chavez, Tekton Entre MPC; Tessie Arela, Cebu; Zos Tayaban, Laguna; Rudy Lubis, CFC ANCOP-Tekton Foundation; Pol Pinera, Quezon; Jorge Asensi, Southern Leyte; Bong Bautista and Julie Lao, Agusan del Norte.
