CPE* Provider

The Philippine Association of Academic and Research Librarians Association (PAARL) is pretty pleased and proud to have been honored by the Professional Regulations Commission (PRC) as an offical Continuing Professional Education (CPE) provider for Filipino Librarians. This means that participants attending their fora, seminars and workshops will automatically earn CPE points necessary when renewing one's license.

PAARL has been officially certified by the members of the CPE Council of
the Professional Regulatory Board for Librarians chaired by Hon.
Elizabeth R. Peralejo as a CPE provider for three (3) years from
2009-2011. This forthcoming seminar entitled "Librarians at their
Best: Envisioning and Realizing Multilevel and Progressive Readers
Services" which will be held at the Lyceum of Aparri, Cagayan Valley
from April 29 to May 1, 2009 has been approved and given 20 credit

Please hurry and make your reservations soon if you want to be assured
of accommodation and transportation. Call or email Christopher Paras at:
09287960744 Email: paras.christopher@

This goes to show that PAARL lives up to its commitment in pursuing high professional standards for its members and for raising the bar among LIS professionals at large. Very soon, I hope, the Philippine Librarians Association Incorporated (PLAI) and the rest of the library organizations in the Philippines would follow suit. Unless there exist a set of requirements for a professional association to become an accredited CPE provider.

As in all things in this world, there's another side to the story. It is worth hearing how PAARL was able to achieve this feat.
