In response to an article that appeared in the October issue of The Philippine Community Herald Newspaper announcing that “Unification – Reconciles PCC and APCO”, the Philippine Community Council of NSW (PCCNSW) states that this is totally untrue. Contrary to the article, the “unification” did not happen and no agreement was ever reached.
While the “unification” initiative of Ms. Evelyn Zaragoza, Philippine Community Herald’s publisher is commendable, it did not happen. The headline of the article was false and misleading.
According to PCCNSW President, Ms. Serna Ladia, “What transpired was simply an exchange of ideas. As PCCNSW, we felt obligated to listen to what some members of the community had to say.” “While we in PCCNSW hope to see a united community, it did not eventuate as the main officers of APCO were not even present” she added.
In attendance at the meeting in question were a few members of PCCNSW, not the entire Board, and member affiliates of APCO, and a few officials. Invitation to the meeting was done solely by Ms. Zaragoza.
PCCNSW remains steadfast in its purpose to work harmoniously with all stakeholders and to serve the best interests of the community.
