Two faculty members of the Customs Administration Department under the College of Business Administration were recently nominated into the Board of Customs Brokers, the board that oversees the licensure examination for customs brokers administered by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).
Prof. Nenette Dagondon, chairperson of the department, and Prof. Rolando de Jesus were nominated into the board as members by the Chamber of Customs Brokers, Incorporated (CCB). CCB is the largest and accredited body of professional customs brokers, and as such plays a big role in the regulation, practice, and professionalism of customs brokers in the country.
Prof. Dagondon was also honored by the CCB with a plaque of recognition for her outstanding work as a professional which has resulted into her nomination to the PRC board. The award was given to her during the CCB’s 2011 National Assembly last November 9 at the Manila Hotel.
While relatively new to the AdU community, professors Dagondon and de Jesus have contributed to the growth of the BS Customs Admin program, with its latest showing the board exams serving as proof. AdU achieved a 54.05% passing rate, with alumni Wyndell Diaz landing in the Top 10 passers at second place with her score of 89.75%.
