Zamboanga City is set to host the Third National Executive Officers and National Board meeting where 1,000 officers and members of the Philippine Councilors’ League (PCL) are expected to attend.

Mayor Celso Lobregat presided over a coordination meeting held with representatives from offices and agencies concerned to ensure a hassle-free convention from September 12 in 14 in Zamboanga City.

As preparations are rife for the PCL National Convention next week, the city is also gearing up for two other huge conventions this year, the Fourth IBP Mindanao Convention of Lawyers and the National Conference of the Career Executive Officers Association.

“This is really a part of our effort to promote Zamboanga City by bringing out the good, the positive, the best and the beautiful of Zamboanga,” Lobregat said.

Zamboanga City has been dubbed as the convention center in the region, as it hosts the most number of conventions of local, national and international scales every year.

Aside from the continuing local legislative education program, the PCL officers and members will also get the chance to tour around the city to see the various attraction sites.

The PCL National Convention will have national officials as guests of honor from its opening day to the welcome night and closing program.
The league is headed by President Alma Moreno-Salic of Parañaque City.

Moreno, together with the PCL National Chairman and Tagum City Councilor Allan Zulueta and other PCL officers, was in Zamboanga City last May to prepare the groundwork for this month’s event.

“Nandito po kami para humingi ng tulong kay Mayor (Lobregat) at payagan gawin dito (sa Zamboanga) ang 3rd Assembly ng PCL from September 12 to 14. Ito ho ang pagkakataon para ipakita na ang Zamboanga City ay napakaganda at hindi ho magulo at napakabait ang mga tao rito (We are here to ask help from Mayor (Lobregat) and allow to hold the 3rd Assembly of PCL from September 12 to 14 here (in Zamboaga. This is the chance to show that Zamboanga City is very beautiful and there is no conflict. The people are very kind),” the PCL president said addressing city government employees during the flag raising ceremony in front of City Hall last May 28.
