Welcome Message                                              

Dear Fellow PMAPers,


This year, we will be On the MOVE!   M.O.V.E. stands for:

  • Membership 
  • Organization
  • Visibility, and 
  • Engagement  

M - for Members.  You are our No. 1 priority.  Together we will move towards our vision and mission which was re-stated in 2018. 


"PMAP-CDO envisions itself to emerge as the standard bearer of the HR profession in Mindanao, recognized for its expertise and authority in people management." 


  • Validate and vouch for the HR qualification of professionals. (3rd bullet point)

Thus, we will create a program that will help you, our members map your developmental needs and be recognized for attaining certain HR Professional standards.  

We will make sure that your PMAP membership plays a key role in furthering your HR career.

O - for Organization.   The profile of our organization today is so much more professional and well-rounded than when I joined in 2010.  This year, we will group you according to your sector or industry in our directory and GMMs so that during our meetings, you will not just learn from PMAP, you will learn from and be able to benchmark with companies belonging to the same industry.

V - for Visibility.  I am pleased to announce that this year, PMAP-CDO will be significantly more visible among the Mindanao chapters and in Manila.  In addition to being your Chapter President, I am also the Mindanao Trustee reporting to the Board of Trustees of PMAP National. Thus, I will be bringing the PMAP-CDO banner in every chapter that I visit.  

E - for Engagement.  We will increase the level of fun and engagement in the Learning and Development activities, General Membership Meetings, Industrial and Employee Relations Summit, and other chapter events. We will be active on this website, on FB and on Instagram.  Viva #pmapcdo!

Thus, beyond iterating the vision and mission of PMAP-CDO, we will be On the MOVE.  A MOVE that is aligned with President Loi’s 2020 theme of People-Inspired, Heart-driven and Tech-Enabled Organizations.

My deepest congratulations to the outgoing officers, led by IPP Bambie Espiritu for a job well done in 2019.  I bring my best wishes to you fellow members as we MOVE on in 2020!

Welcome to our website!
