Honorable Chairman Teofilo S. Pilando Jr. together with Honorable Commissioners Yolanda D. Reyes and Jose Y. Cueto, Jr. led the weeklong virtual celebration of Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) 48th founding anniversary on June 16-22, 2021 with the theme “Role of Filipino Professionals in Sustaining National Development and International Collaboration amidst Global Challenges”.
Through the years, the PRC as an organization tested and nurtured by time, has been faithful to its mandate to ensure the country of a steady supply of competent, quality, and globally competitive professionals through reliable and credible licensure examinations, an efficient and effective regulatory system, and a responsive continuing professional education and development programs. And this year’s founding anniversary celebration seals the more than four (4) decades of excellent and dedicated service to the Filipino professionals and the nation in general.
Regardless of the number of years an organization is celebrating, there are variety of ways to
mark an anniversary, just like what the Commission did.
