Cooperative Month celebration, pushed
by Gaby Keith and Glen Balangao

The Baguio City Council passed on first reading a proposed ordinance institutionalizing a “Cooperative Month” in the city.

Authored by Vice Mayor Edison Bilog, the measure appropriates P100,000 from the City Mayor’s Office budget to be used for the activity.

The measured stated that the yearly allocation may be adjusted accordingly as may be required for the celebration.

It cited as basis Presidential Proclamation 493, s. 2003, which declared October as Cooperative Month. The proclamation mandated the entire cooperative movement to conduct the activity and encouraged wider participation of all sectors of society in nation-building through cooperativism.

Also, Section 2 of Memorandum Circular 2013-01 of the Cooperative Development Authority reiterated the organization of the cooperative development councils (CDC) that shall embody and highlight the partnership and resource-sharing between the cooperative and government sectors.

The proposed ordinance said that the celebration of Cooperative Month in Baguio has always been initiated by the city’s CDC, a tripartite organization created pursuant to Executive Order 95, s. 1993. 

The CDC has been conducting the annual celebration using funds obtained from its activities and registration fees collected from participants.

“To inspire more cooperatives to participate in the event, it is encouraged that funds be provided for the conduct of the activity so that more cooperatives will be benefited,” it stated.
