Davao Holds Leadership & Enterprise Summits for Program Members

The Transformational Development and Training Group (TDTG), formerly Client Services Group, together with the Credit Operations Group, provided new learning opportunities for 140 center leaders during the first Center Leaders' Conference (CLC) last March 23, 2017 in Davao City.

Armed with the theme, "Empowering Women, Transforming Communities", the CLC was divided into three modules pertaining to social, economic, environmental, and spiritual development. This was followed by a marketing workshop and orientation to one of the organization's most extensive spin-off, the KMBI Development Foundation, Inc. (KDFI) led by Mr. Reginold de los Reyes, Program Director of KDFI.

In her opening remarks, TDTG Deputy Executive Director, Ms. Hazel R. Bayaca, was confident the CLC will produce a positive effect on the mindset of Program Members towards becoming better and more efficient community leaders.

Transformation Coordinator, Ms. Rocelyn Magallanes, administered the modules on Environmental Awareness and People Management. On the other hand, Entrepreneurial Development Services Officer, Mr. Rico B. Antion, equipped the participants with financial literacy. KMBI also facilitated a livelihood workshop to teach the Program Members how to maximize their resources for profit and how to properly market their products.

KMBI, in partnership with Unilever, KMBI Development Foundation Inc. (KDFI), and APPEND, commenced the Kabisig Summit on the following day, March 24, 2017. The activity, held at the Alternative Marketing Center (ALMACEN) in Davao City, was a first for KMBI Program Members. The summit had the theme: “Bagong Taon, Bagong Pagkakataon”; and aimed to bring together a community of microentrepreneurs, particularly those engaged in sari-sari store enterprises. The activity also included inputs on business management skills and financial literacy through livelihood development programs.

SEC Clarifies the Official Address of KMBI HO

The Securities and Exchange Commission Regional Office in Baguio City in its Resolution dated February 17, 2017 affirms that KMBI’s principal head office is at #12 San Francisco Street Karuhatan Valenzuela City.

The KMBI Board based in #12 San Francisco Street Karuhatan Valenzuela objected to the highly irregular submission of a notarized secretary certificate by Dr. Amelia Gonzales, Noel Alcaide, Basilio G. Cajucom Sr., Jenara D. Eduarte, Fr. Eddie Panlilio and Noel B. Alipio, certifying that no intra-corporate dispute or proceeding has been filed and pending in any courts of law in their attempt to change the records of KMBI’s principal head office address.

Contrary to claim of Gonzales group, the SEC affirms that intra-corporate cases in Valenzuela City are existing when the Gonzales group filed the amendment of KMBI’s Articles of Incorporation. The Gonzales group’s submission of a secretary certificate stating the absence of intra-corporate cases, despite the overwhelmingly evidence to the contrary, is not in accordance with the requirements of the Corporation Code of the Philippines.

The SEC pointed that among the documentary requirements for the approval of any amendment of the Articles of Incorporation is a secretary certificate signed by the corporate secretary, certifying that no action or cases is filed or pending before any court involving intra-corporate dispute or claims. This requirement is mandatory in order to prevent a situation where person’s not “legitimately” elected in the Board will be allowed to amend the articles of incorporation to serve their own interest.
