RGADCC XI OFFICERS. The officers of the RGADCC XI, (l-r) Mr. Miguel S. Herrera III of NEDA XI, Committee Secretary; Ms. Mary Lou B. Caharian, the newly elected Chairperson; ex-officio Vice-Chairperson Dir. Maria Lourdes D. Lim of NEDA XI and the outgoing Chairperson Prof. Rosena D. Sanchez.
DAVAO CITY – Following the retirement of Prof. Rosena D. Sanchez from the Ateneo de Davao University (AdDU), the Regional Gender and Development Coordinating Committee (RGADCC) of the Regional Development Council (RDC) XI reorganized by electing its new Chairperson, Mary Lou B. Caharian, to replace Prof. Sanchez.
The membership of Prof. Sanchez in the RGADCC XI was based on her capacity as the Co-coordinator of the Ateneo Task Forum to the Mindanao Working Group on Reproductive Health, Gender and Sexuality (MWG on RHGS). While her term of office as the RGADCC XI Chairperson was yet to end by 2013, her retirement from AdDU also required dropping her commitments with the committee as she no longer represented the Ateneo Task Forum to the MWG on RHGS. Prof. Sanchez was reelected as RGADCC XI Chairperson in 2010, paving the way to her second term as head of the Committee. She was a professor of the AdDU and the head of its Social Research Office until her retirement late last year.
