Greetings! It is an honor and a pleasure to invite you as PIEP member to the 23rd PIEP National Convention which will be held on November 6 - 7, 2014, 8am – 5pm at the SGV Conference Hall, 3/F AIM Conference Center, Benavidez cor. Trasierra Streets, Legaspi Village, Makati City. This coincides with the celebration of World Town Planning Day. The overall theme for the convention is Looking Forward: Beyond The Yolanda Experience.
When Yolanda struck on November 8, 2013, PIEP was holding its 2013 National Convention with the theme: “Disaster Preparedness and Sustainable Development”. One year after such episode we are again holding a national convention, this time to discuss how we can participate in implementing the Yolanda Master Redevelopment Plan. We can review the events from November 8, 2013 to November 2014 but more importantly we can participate and help implement the Yolanda Master Redevelopment Plan by deliberating on the selected policies, programs, plans and best practices and by assembling an innovative action plan for sustainable and resilient communities amongst the Yolanda affected areas. Hopefully these would serve as a guide to these who wish to participate more actively in the rehabilitation and rebuilding process, now and for other similar occurrences.
Please be informed that the early registration fee is only Three Thousand Pesos (Php 3,000.00) for PIEP members and government employees and Three Thousand Five Hundred Pesos (Php 3,500.00) for non-PIEP members who will remit their payments not later than October 31, 2014. On-site registration fee shall be Three Thousand Five Hundred Pesos (Php 3,500.00) for PIEP members and government employees and Four Thousand Pesos (Php 4,000.00) for non-PIEP members. Payments may be made in cash or check payable to PIEP.
