Greetings of Peace and Happiness!
As we are now approaching a new year, we also reflect on the past and look at our journey during the whole year. It’s been quite a year for all of us considering that we have encountered diverse challenges which provide us acumen that we need to work together to be a stronger force .
But this year is not all about challenges and threats. For the first time, we have conducted the Annual General Membership Assembly (AGMA) in three venues. The event was conducted successfully with 27,613 MCOs who attended the same. With a much bigger crowd this year, more prizes were added to the raffle promo which somehow brought joy to our MCOs.
The event also served as an opportunity for the management to present future endeavors of our cooperative. With so much aspiration that we have, we continue to strive hard to provide excellent service to our MCOs. The construction of our Kidapawan Sub-office is still on progress. This project will enable COTELCO to serve our MCOs in a more convenient way. We are looking forward to its completion and rest assured that this is all for the betterment of our services.
Futher, as a manifestation of our hardwork, COTELCO proudly received 5 awards during the National Electrification Administration’s (NEA) 50th Anniversary. One of the awards is the Paramount Achievement Award- Triple A Category EC. Indeed, with the help of our MCOs, we have consistently maintained our financial viability and efficient delivery of electric service thereby entrenching us to be effective partners in social and economic growth.
Lastly, we have faced the forces of nature when a series of earthquakes hit our province. Some areas, experienced power outage. Fortunately,through our brave and courageous warriors of light, we were able to get to our feet significantly faster. Aside from electrification, COTELCO has also willingly extended help to our MCOs in various forms. We are also blessed to receive solid support from our NEA Administrator, Mr. Edgardo Masongsong and from all EC Allied Organizations who never fail to give us helping hands. Evidently, in unity there is strength.
Now that Christmas is just around the corner, many of us may not probably feel the season of joy this year due to the current situation we are facing right now. However, may we all be reminded the true reason for the season. It is about celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. Christmas 2019 will come but in a very different and unique form.
So,let us continue to kindle our enthusiasm as we face each day. God bless everyone!
