I-Café Pilipinas Initiates Formation Of An I-Cafe Cooperative

The move to form a multipurpose cooperative for the i-café industry actually started during the Idea Camp held at Philippine Trade Training Center (PTTC) Conference Rooms A and B, Roxas Boulevard corner Gil Puyat Avenue, Pasay City last April 27, 2010. I-Café Pilipinas takes the initiative in forming the cooperative by virtue of its being a national advocacy organization representing the interests of stakeholders in the Internet café industry of the country. Also, the proposed multipurpose cooperative is aimed to be national in scope with its membership opened to all interested parties with common bond to the i-café industry who are mostly affiliated or linked to the organization.

The next step in the formation of the cooperative was immediately scheduled after the Idea Camp and a meeting attended by twenty-four (24) individuals who are committed to be the cooperators was held last May 8, 2010 at the Redfox Conference Room, 4th Floor, Golden Building, 1465 E. Rodriguez Avenue, Quezon City. The attendees were fully briefed with the nature of the cooperative to be formed, the products and services that it will offer to its members and how it will be organized and manned in order to achieve its goal of having economic empowerment for the stakeholders in the i-café industry.

The Pre-Membership Education Seminar (PMES) will be the next activity that the individuals committed to the formation of the cooperative will attend. This requirement of the law governing the registration and operation of a cooperative will be scheduled as soon as possible with a representative from the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) conducting it. The financial and organizational responsibilities of the would-be cooperators will be decided during the PMES and the filing of the Articles of Cooperation with the CDA will conclude the registration stage of the cooperative.
