Party-list for Librarians
The Philippine Group of Law Librarians, Inc (PGLL) a national organization of law librarians is sponsoring a forum on “ Party-List for Librarians and Information Professionals” during the Manila International Book Fair on Thursday, 13th September 2012 from 1:00am to 3:00pm at the SMX Convention Center (Meeting Rooms 2 & 3), Pasay City.
Party-list is a national, regional and sectoral parties or organizations or coalitions duly registered with the Commission on Elections (COMELEC). Sectoral representatives work for the special interest or concerns of their sector. There is a party-list for teachers, women, and even security guards that work and advanced their special concerns in Congress. We, librarians and information professionals have to explore this option to further advance the gains achieved by our respected elders in the professions.
A group of librarians have started to work for the formation of a Party-List. It is for this reason that we would like to invite all stakeholders in our beloved profession to attend the forum and give your feedbacks, suggestions, comments, support, etc. on how this movement could materialize.
Resources Speakers: Congressman Teodoro A. Casino and Michael A. Pinto
Forum Fee: P200 non-PGLL members, P150 –PGLL members and P100 for students.
See you there. Thank you.
