Mayor Fortunato Abrenilla encouraged the participants to listen, understand and internalize the discussions. He emphasized that the SK serves as a training ground for their future roles if they choose to serve as government officials. That they must grab the opportunity for learning to capacitate them in the conduct of roles and responsibilities as elected SK officials.
Ms. Socorro Dorina Ll. Salas, a Jagnaanon connected with the Regional Department of Interior and Local Government, emphasized to the participants that the government is spending money to capacitate the SK and prepare them for roles. This training must be taken seriously so as when confronted with everyday situations as SK, the response will already be a learned response.
The holding of this SK orientation seminar is timely so that these young elected officials can start realizing the main output of this seminar which is the roadmap/action plan for 2012 by January next year.
