Facilitated by the Regional IDS Staff, attended by the Provincial President and Vice President of the seven (7) provinces and witnessed by the respective IMO IDS Staff, new set of leaders for RCIA BOT for CY 2017-2021 was elected last February 22, 2017 at Farmers Training Center, San Rafael, Bulacan.
As per RCIA By-Laws, the seven (7) provincial president and eight (8) vice president (2 vice-presidents in case of Bulacan) has the authority to elect the new RCIA BOTs officer through secret balloting.
