The Search for The Outstanding Councilors of the Philippines (TOCP)

The Search for The Outstanding Councilors of the Philippines (TOCP)

JCI Philippines was again designated by the Philippines Councilors League (PCL) as the organization who will administer and manage this year’s search for The Outstanding Councilors of the Philippines (TOCP). 2009 National President Fulbert C. Woo was in Davao City during the signing of Memorandum of Agreement and Launching at the Garden Tent, Waterfront Insular Hotel.
It was in 2006 during the incumbency of PCL National President Carlo Pontico Fortuna and JCI Philippines National President Ismael Penado when the idea of to give due recognition to Philippine Councilors for their outstanding achievements and meritorious service was conceptualized. Recognizing the importance to bestow such national award, the proposal was readily approved and adopted by their respective national boards, thus, The Outstanding Councilor of the Philippines (TOCP) Award was born. TOCP is now on its 2nd implementation and has become a strong partnership between the Office of Senator Edgardo J. Angara, the Philippine Councilors League (PCL) and JCI Philippines.

TOCP 2009 is now open for nomination and nomination forms are available at the JCI Philippines Headquarters or at the PCL National Office, 4th Floor, DILG Building, A. Francisco Condominium II,  EDSA, Quezon City. There will be a regional search to choose at least 17 Finalists who will qualify for the National Finals where the 10 Winners will be chosen and who will be awarded with P100,000.00 worth of projects each.
