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.
