Director Foncardas focuses on moral renewal as he serves first day in region 5


Legazpi City – As luck or blessings would have it Regional Branch Director Reynaldo Foncardas on his first day of service at the Regional Branch 5 of the National Conciliation and Mediation Board (NCMB) attended the two-day Moral Recovery Seminar conducted by the Department of Labor and Employment Regional Office V (DOLEROV) held at Bethlehem Pastoral and Retreat Center, Sogod, Bacacay, Albay on April 6-7, 2017.

“I am honoured and feeling blessed that I was able to join the DOLEROV Regional Coordinating Council family in this moral recovery activity most especially since this is my first day of service here in the Bicol Region.  It is but fitting to start my arduous task of directing and managing the regional branch operations with a seminar on spiritual renewal or recollection of sorts,” said Director Foncardas.

“This will strengthen our moral resources and revisit our vision as civil servants for a God-centered, people-oriented, pro-nature and community development service,” he added.  “We must reflect on the teachings as this is a call to all of us for moral enhancement and transformation for a more responsive, democratic and effective service to our clients.  Let us start right by improving our moral selves first so that we can serve with highest dignity, transparency and trustworthiness.  Let us remain focused on our mission and vision tempered with spirituality.  We, being holders of public office, hence public trust, must at all times be accountable to the people.”
