|Name of Project:||ECOP-DECP Project to Operationalize ECOP Chapters through the Establishment of a Secretariat and Implementation of an Action Plan|
|Timeline:||Consultative workshop with ECOP Chapter Presidents and top officers: February 2017
Pilot implementation: January 2018 – June 2018
|Background:||In order for ECOP to effectively operate at the regional level it needs to build on the structure of its existing Chapters. These Chapters are based in a number of regions across the Philippines and serve as the extension of ECOP at the local level.
The Dutch Employers Cooperation Programme (DECP) is supporting the development of three pilot ECOP Chapters in Pangasinan, Baguio, and Naga towards full operationalization. To this end, the Chapters are expected to obtain legal status, develop a strategy for recruitment and retention of members, identify possible services that could be implemented by the Chapter, establish contact with regional policy makers, and have a closer link with the work of ECOP National.
