Board of Advisers Strengthens Commitment to the PN

he partnership between the Philippine Navy (PN) and its stakeholders has been strengthened and reaffirmed once more as the PN Board of Advisers (BoA) convened for the third time this year, last 14 July 2011 at the 19th Hall, PN Golf Club (PNGC), Bonifacio Naval Station, Taguig City. VADM Alexander P Pama, the Flag Officer in Command, PN thanked the PN BoA for the persistent support that it has extended to the organization. Likewise, Dr. Jesus P. Estanislao, Chairperson of the PN BoA, reassured their commitment to be of assistance to the PN, through initiatives such as the Support Your Navy Foundation (SYNF). This assistance is geared towards the realization of the PNs vision crafted in the PN Strategic Sail Plan 2020. Maritime security issues concerning the West Philippine Sea were one of the focal points of the discussion. The Board said that this provides a golden opportunity for the PN to build its capability in order to perform its mandate and be duly recog-

nized as a strong and credible organization that every Filipino can truly be proud of. As such, the PN BoA decided to take on the role of providing the intellectual leadership that the PN and the entire country need in light of the pressing issues. The cluster updates, the arrival of BRP Gregorio del Pilar, and the Public-Private Partnership projects and efforts of the PN were also discussed during the meeting. The meeting ensued with the presentations by PN officers. CAPT Giovanni Carlo J

Bacordo, Director of the Center for Naval Leadership and Excellence (CNLE) gave updates to the Board regarding the status of the PN Strategic Sail Plan 2020, specifically the status of the initiatives and milestones in the FOIC, PNs Balanced Scorecard. The three PN committees also presented their respective updates. For the Ways and Means Committee, LT Edwin German A Cordova of the Naval Resource Management Office updated the Board about the SYNF Fundraising Golf Tournament held last 23 July 2011 at PNGC. For the Maritime Coalition Committee (MCC), the presentation of LCOL Arturo G Rojas from the Office of the Assistant Chief of Naval Staff for Plans and Programs, O/N5, covered the

MCCs action items during the previous PN BoA Meeting last 29 April 2011 and the action items arising from the MCC meeting last 06 May 2011. COL Jesulito H Calimag from the Office of the Assistant Chief of Naval Staff for Civil Military Operations, O/N7, presented the proposed PN Briefing for Stakeholders, which shall be presented to stakeholders during visits of the PN and every possible venue to encourage participation and possible involvement. The Articles and By Laws of the Support Your Navy Foundation and the Board Resolution designating Dr. Jesus P.

Montinola III, President and CEO of the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI), graced the 6th Leg of the PN Governance Forum Series 2011 held last 10 July 2011 at the HPN Multi-purpose Hall, Naval Station Jose Andrada, Manila. At 160 years, BPI is the Philippines oldest commercial banking institution. It has been tested by various economic and political challenges that occurred in history. Yet these events did not deter the bank from rising beyond expectations. It was able to sustain its mark of excellence and innovation that made it one of the strongest and most profitable banks in the country. Exactly how BPI did this is what Mr. Montinola shared during the Forum. Speaking on the topic BPI: Sustaining Excellence Through Good Governance, he discussed the various best practices and innovations employed by the company to ensure sustainability, good governance and stakeholder satisfaction. Sustainability and governance always start with good people doing the right thing, Mr. Montinola said as he called the attention of the audience on the elements of sustainability. He said that any organization that aims for excellence only needs to concentrate on five things. First, it should pick good leaders. Second, it must walk its talk. Three, it must have clear goals and clear policies. Fourth is transparency and, lastly, accountability. He then emphasized that the measure of ones excellence is the level of satisfaction of its stakeholders its customers, partners, regulators, employees and shareholders. The value that BPI places on satisfying its stakeholders sets the tone for its strategies and innovations. He summarized BPIs best practices in a witty acrostic that spells NAVAL.

A is for having able professionals whom it trains and gives due recognition for their contributions to the company. Lastly, L is for Love our bank meaning, its personnel get to love and value the institution they are working for. Together, these best practices made BPI live up to its name truly it is the Bank of the Philippine Islands. BPIs success story on sustaining excellence throughout more than a century of existence is an inspiration to the Philippine Navy, which is also one of the oldest institutions in the country. At the same time, it is a challenge to examine where our organization is when it comes to the value we are giving to the people we are serving. (MCC)
