IPCAP Meeting at RGS, Cubao July 16, 2008 PICS

Here are some of the pictures taken during our 1st IPCAP Meeting (# 1-08) last July 16, 2008 at the RGS Convent's Rosary Hall. Our IPCAP papers have then been submitted a day earlier; on July 18, 2008 the SEC seal was affixed on our certificate of registration complete with the signature of the signing officer (I shall post it in my next blog together with our BIR Certificate). On July 21, 2008 Cesar and I went to SEC to receive our certificate and the Membership Book. Thanks God indeed!

IPCAP was organized for the sole purpose of fulfilling the stipulations of our RA 9258 or the "Guidance and Counseling Act of 2004" particularly Article III, Section 21. The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) endorsed IPCAP for SEC registration. It's Indorsement Letter dated July 11, 2008 states "...we hereby deem the herein PRC Indorsement or referral to SEC as compliance therewith and as PRC 'Certification of Non-Objection' to the SEC registration of the said [IPCAP] Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws."

This IPCAP meeting was attended by representatives of 8 Counseling-related organizations, namely the Philippine Guidance and Counseling Association (PGCA), Philippine Association for Counselor Education, Research and Supervision (PACERS), Philippine Association for Christian Counseling (PACC), Career Development Association of the Philippines (CDAP), Family and Pastoral Association of the Philippines (FPCAP), Guidance Circle of the Philippines (GCP), Philippine Association of PSycho-Social Helping Professionals (PAPSHP), and the Religious of the Good Shepherd Community (RGS) of nuns. Here they are:

Those in front are from the left: Dr. Emy Villar (PGCA President), Dr. Joyce Dy (CDAP Vice-President), and Dr. Perlie Polestico (in yellow and in a prayerful stance, PGCA Board Member).
