PCMRI congress to be held Thursday
THE PHILIPPINE Council of Management Research Institute (PCMRI) will hold this year’s 40th National Management Congress with a simple dinner-awards night for the Outstanding Corporation of the Year Award, the Outstanding Management Leadership Award of the Year and the oath taking of new members.
PMCRI Congress chair Dr. Pedrito Salvador said the affair would be held tomorrow (Thursday) at 6:30 p.m. at the Legaspi Function Room, Intercon Hotel in Makati City.
“We opted to hold a simple rite so that funds and other resources we can save can be channeled to research and further studies of important issues in politics, economics, sociology and national security,” Salvador said.
The Outstanding Corporation Award goes to Mighty Corp., a wholly-owned Filipino multibillion company operating for the past 70 years. Mighty was chosen by the board of judges from eight other nominees for its outstanding achievements in the fields of economics, finance, agriculture, business and industry; e-commerce and IT; strategic management and economy of scales; leadership and governance; adherence to nationalism and antimonopolism; and social, cultural and religious activities that impacted on the country and society.
The other outstanding awardees are Dr. Benjamin Sy Santos, national president of the Filipino Inventors Society, for inventing greenhouse fixed and portable machines that refined and reuse, pollution-free; its particles turned into asphalt; Dr. Nerza Rebustes for her contributions in the fields of education, sociology, economics, customs, tariff and revenue taxation, research methodology and national security; Dr. Emmanuel “Noli” T. Santos for establishing an institution of higher learning and for writing and publishing books on constitutions, management, justice, business, history and culture; and Dr. Cecilio T. Arillo for his five bestselling books in the fields of education, research, history, politics, sociology, economics, investigative journalism and national security.
