Rey Anthony Chiu 

TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol, Jan 24 (PIA) – Evading from the usual lengthy discourses and processes of working out a task so important to its organizational strengthening, the Bohol Blood Council elects members of an 11 man Executive Board to delegate the task. 

In its first organizational meeting in 2012, the Bohol Blood Coordinating Council, and upon whose shoulders lie the burden of working out the details of the local implementation of the program that ensures adequate safe accessible blood for Boholanos, tasked the Executive Board however to set up the details. 

Led by Council President Governor Edgar Chatto, the council’s setting up of the Executive Board to decide on the details of the upcoming Provincial Blood Coordinating Council Planning Workshop has effectively won time. 

Earlier, Governor Chatto, who also skillfully delegated his authority to the Board so as not to hold the activities of the council at the mercy of the his overloaded schedule, pushed for the 11 member executive Board whose tasks include reporting to the governor any council developments and updates. 

Cognizant of the task and the dire need to get blood for transfusion immediately accessible to poor Boholanos, the council proceeded to pick Dr. Cesar Tomas Lopez, Sangguniang Panlalawigan Health Committee as Executive Board President. 

The 26 member council also elected Gov Celestino Gallares Memorial Hospital Laboratory Department Chief, Dr. Juanita Arcay to be vice president. 

Picked to be secretary is Philippine National Red Cross (PNRC) Administrator Nenita Briones, as the PNRC also sits as council secretariat, based on the Department of Health Secretary Francisco Duque issued Administrative Order No. 2010 series of 002. 

The multi sectoral council also pushed private sector representative Marietta Gasatan of the Bohol Chamber of Commerce and Industry as treasurer while the council also elected government’s sector representative Rey Anthony Chiu of the Philippine Information Agency as press relations officer. 

Elected Auditor was Dr. Portia Reyes, head of the Department of Health in Bohol. 

Completing the list of Board are five more Board Members, all chosen for their potential strategic sector representations that will bolster the council’s programs. 

Elected as Board members are League of Municipalities of the Philippine Bohol Chapter and Trinidad Mayor Roberto Cajes, Provincial pathologist and Provincial Health Office-based Dr. Jessica Socorro Yu, PSsupt Constantino Barot, Liga ng Mga Barangay President Board member Crspina Vergara and the Philippine Army represented by Col. John Bonafos. 

The Executive Board will now decide when to convene the full council for its strategic planning workshop in February, says Gov. Chatto. (30)
