It is the Best in the Philippines! I’ve been to Tanauan for two or three times already but it was my first time to be in the Office of Community Affairs. It was the venue for our scheduled planning session of the Southern Luzon Association of Museums (SLAM). I was on time, but a few minutes before 9:00 o’clock in the morning. Since I was the first to arrive, I had a chance to chat with our host, the head of this office and past president of SLAM, Angelina Amat. I couldn’t help but admire not only the accomplishments but the design of her office.
Indeed, the City Community Affairs Office of Tanauan changes the way we look at government offices. Best in the region, best in the country. It is ISO certified! Now here’s the challenge: can we upgrade all government offices to this level? Why not? Give it a try.
