HSAC strengthens information, education, and communication efforts

MANILA — Human Settlements Adjudication Commission (HSAC) strengthens its information, education, and communication efforts through informative and comprehensive training on communication concepts, strategies, and best practices in line with its pursuit of more efficient and effective public service.

The activity, dubbed Training of Trainers, gathered HSAC personnel from its Central Office and Regional Adjudication Branches who are directly involved in disseminating vital information about the Commission and its services to the public, fostering healthy relationships with the media, and engaging with the agency’s stakeholders.

“This training will help us, especially lawyers, to explain legal terms to people in a way they can easily understand because these are the people we need to protect,” said Commissioner John-Christopher T. Mahamud, the Supervising Commissioner of the Public Affairs Division. Commissioner Mahamud also welcomed the esteemed guests and resource speakers, Assistant Director General Allan Vincent B. Lorenzo of the Philippine Information Agency (PIA), Executive Labor Arbiter Roderick Q. Almeyda of the National Labor Relations Commission – Region 3, and Director Diana C. Camacho-Mercado of the Department of Budget and Management – Advocacy, Communications and Training Service.

Executive Commissioner Melzar P. Galicia and Commissioner Michael P. Cloribel also joined the activity.

To equip the HSAC with the necessary communication tools, the PIA team, headed by Mr. Darrel Winthrop G. Torres, conducted sessions on strategic communications and press conference simulation. In addition, Atty. Lorelei P. Bola-Mina, Officer-in-Charge of the HSAC Legal Service, presented the standard legal topics catered to the information needs of the stakeholders.

To achieve its mandate, HSAC aims to continually strengthen its information, education, and communication initiatives by delivering a standard and consistent key message to its stakeholders with the aid of new technologies. (HSAC)
