DA-RFO 1 ushers in Farmer-Director for the month of May
As a tribute to the men and women of the agriculture and fisheries sector in the region, the DA-RFO I family warmly welcomes RAFC Chairman Vincent A. Adorna as he assumes the role of Farmer-Director for this month.
He was acknowledged by DA-RFO 1 Regional Executive Director Lucrecio R. Alviar Jr. during the regular flag ceremony held on May 7, 2018.
In his message, RED Alviar explained that Adorna is expected to devote 75% of his time in the agency to fulfill his responsibilities of taking the roles and tasks of the DA RFO I Director in the implementation and dissemination of DA’s key programs.
His authority, however, is limited to non-policy determining activities which should not in any way affect the government accounting rules and procedures as well as the civil services rules and regulations governing regular government employees as stipulated in the memorandum signed by the DA Secretary Emmanuel F. Piňol on March 27, 2017.
The farmer-director program is one of the highlights of the month-long farmers and fisher folk’s celebration.//
