LGU Holds Conference for Civil Society Organizations

At least 50 Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) attended the CSOs Conference organized by the City Government of La Carlota last August 5 at the City Gymnasium.

This activity aims to encourage all people’s organizations (POs), non-government organizations (NGOs), or institutions in the city to apply for accreditation with the city government.

Accreditation would allow the CSOs to participate in local special bodies and become partners of the LGU in the implementation and monitoring of its plans, programs and other activities.

The activity was also in compliance with Section 4.2 of DILG Memorandum Circular (MC) No. 2022-083 (June 15, 2022) which states that within the first week of August, the Sanggunian concerned shall issue a notice of call for accreditation to all the CSOs listed in the final updated directory of CSOs, whether previously accredited or seeking accreditation for the first time, through the conduct of a CSO conference that shall be conducted by the local government unit.
