The ADFIAP Secretariat, composed of its business units (ADFIAP Consulting and Institute of Development Finance) and service units (membership, knowledge resources, and administrative and finance), held its annual operational planning meeting on January 25, 2017 at the ADFIAP Headquarters in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines.
The theme for this year’s planning is “Imagination, Creativity, and Innovation” that will focus on the creation and development of new and refreshed training programs and other services to boost ADFIAP’s offerings to its members, partner-organizations, and other stakeholders. Using the SCAMPER creativity tool (acronym for substitute, combine, adapt, modify, put to another use, eliminate, reverse), the Secretariat aims to review/refresh its existing activities and undertake new initiatives for the year.
All units took turns and made presentations on their accomplishments in 2016 and laid out their plans for 2017. For this year, ADFIAP will hold, among others, the 40th ADFIAP Annual Meeting on May 10-12, 2017 in Macao, China and the International CEO Forum XIII on October 10-12 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
