NPC President Canet delivers promise to serve you well

Negros Press Club President Carla N. Canet has indeed delivered her promise to serve best her fellow members of the club who gave them their trust and mandate for her to lead the club for a year.

One year is already enough for me and my fellow officers to prove that we have never failed you in electing us as your leaders.

From the time you put your trust on us, I made sure that I will serve you with all of my heart.

The NPC Presidency is no joke. This is indeed a tough job. Everyone is observing and watching you on how you perform your tasks starting on how courteous you are, how you deal with people and community and the decisions you take. The pressures are all over especially that we are all practitioners.
