PCCI Catanduanes Chapter officers, members and guests

Sworn in as president of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce, Inc. (PCCI) Catanduanes Chapter, Catanduanes Bazaar and Supermart’s Frank C. Boñales has urged the business community on the island to focus more on innovation, support and resiliency in a sustainable way of doing business in the future.
The PCCI, as the voice of business, shall continue its advocacy for economic recovery, he said, by means of a blueprint of collaborative effort between the government and business sectors.
Saying that the business sector needs a post-traumatic growth, Boñales stressed that systematized and unified procedures and protocols among the regions should be implemented to ensure smooth coordination and compliance of citizens, especially in Catanduanes.
The Bazaar proprietor delivered the message during the 2nd induction ceremony of the chamber last Saturday, Oct. 9, 2021 at the Lucky Hotel and Restaurant in Virac, with PCCI Area Vice President for South Luzon Clarine Tobias swearing in the new officers virtually.
Aside from Boñales, the other new officers are: Ma. Cleofe R. Laynes, vice president; Mary Grace B. Teope, secretary; Maria Remily T. Brizuela, treasurer; Jasmin Tuplano, auditor; and, Ronald Oscar G. Lim, public information officer; and, Board of Directors chairman and former president Atty. Susan U. Ordinario and members Erwin B. Teope, Rosemarie Lorayes, Dr. Joselito DC Urgel, Normilyn Z. Marino, PBM Arnel Turado and Dr. Vietrez D. Abella.
During the virtual induction ceremony, AVP Tobias stressed that a very strong, collaborative Chamber can give Catanduanes a chance to attract more investors through networking between the local government unit and the private sector.
She likewise urged the local chamber to recruit more members, citing the many benefits of joining the chamber: free mentoring, networking for cheaper supplies, opening to new markets here and abroad, webinars on availing loan packages from financing institutions with special rates for PCCI members, and affiliation with the Employees Confederation of the Philippines (ECOP) and the International Labor Organization (ILO).
PCCI Regional Governor Mergie Moraleda, who will be succeeded by Atty. Ordinario, also gave a message for the local chamber officers
