Posted on September 30, 2021

CARD MBA recognized its top MBA Coordinators and their determination to serve their communities amid the ongoing health crisis at the 6th Natatanging MBA Coordinator Awarding during the Association’s 22nd Anniversary and Microinsurance Day on September 9, 2021.

The annual awarding of MBA Coordinators aims to recognize and value their contribution and their exemplary performance and dedication to service. These coordinators have demonstrated exceptional records for being both an MBA Coordinator and a member of CARD MRI.

CARD MBA CEO Jocelyn D. Dequito shared her thoughts on how big of an impact MBA Coordinators have on CARD MRI’s goal of 10-20-80, the institution’s strategic direction which aims to reach 20 million members and insure 80 million people in the next 10 years.

“Our CARD MBA Coordinators are instrumental to our aim, especially now when families need institutions like us that could help them in times of hardships. These exemplary coordinators are our frontliners in extending our helping hand especially to those who need it in today’s pandemic,” said Dequito.

For the “Natatanging MBA Coordinator”, productivity makes up 80% of the score, while the score for a panel interview is 20%, adding up to 100%. The first to fifth place awardees received a plaque of recognition and cash prizes, while the “Natatanging MBA Coordinator” received PhP15,000 cash to go with the plaque of recognition.

Bagging the fifth place is Marites Revilla, scoring 95.50%, followed by Filda Tolen as the fourth placer, garnering a close 95.60%. Taking the third place with 97.20% is Emily Suplanas. The second-place spot was taken by Marjorie Quisoy with a score of 97.60%. Close to taking the top award was Lucebel Luceño, who placed as the first-place awardee with 97.90%.

In her speech, Frasco pledged to serve as an inspiration to her colleagues and help others through CARD MBA. “With this award, I would like to serve as an example to my fellow coordinators and spread the word about how much CARD MBA could be of help to the Filipinos in fighting against poverty, especially in times like this, when nothing is certain. CARD MBA is ever-present, certainly ready to ensure our fellowmen,” Frasco shared her sentiments on how important it is to prepare for uncertain times.

To qualify, an MBA Coordinator must have at least three years of membership to any of CARD MRI’s financial institutions and at least served one year as an MBA Coordinator. Excellent performance in employing the 8-24 strategy, which aims to release claim benefits within 8 to 24 hours of filing, also plays a role in the selection.
