NFJPIA holds Annual Regional Leaders Congress

The National Federation of Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants (NFJPIA) – Region 1 and CAR Council, in partnership with SGV, hosted the 2016 Regional Leaders Congress with the theme “AIM: Amplify, Intensify and Magnify Young JPIANs” last 6 August at Sea Sky Hotel, San Fernando, La Union. The congress aimed to gather the local chapter and regional council leaders and inspire them to develop their leadership skills. Officers and members from eight local chapters of the regional council attended the event.


Risk Director Alvin Manuel provided an eye-opening discussion, teaching the young leaders to build a connection with their members by actively listening, challenging and encouraging them to take risks and own their accomplishments. Alvin shared advice on leadership based on his own experiences on how he grew from being a student leader to being a manager in SGV. He emphasized the importance of enhancing client relationships during his early years in SGV.

Performance Improvement (PI) Director Joy Mendoza tackled social media and its connection to leadership and shared the latest updates on the social media revolution. Joy provided an interactive discussion on how social media could be a powerful tool if used properly in their own organizations (i.e., effective communication with their members), but she reminded these young leaders to also place importance in building real and offline connections and relationships.
