President's Message

Liza L. Ortiz
BAIPHIL President
FY 2016-2017

We are celebrating BAIPHIL’s 76th year this fiscal year (July 2016 – June 2017) as it continues its quest for banking excellence through education and training with the strong support of the member-banks and the faithful dedication of the men and women of BAIPHIL.

Our theme for this year is “Leveraging capabilities and synergies for banking excellence”. It underscores the need for the banking industry to continuously strive for excellence in providing outstanding service to its customers by adhering to global standards and best practices in the midst of changes confronting the banking industry – the intensifying competition in the financial industry, the evolving local and global regulatory landscape, and the increasing expectations from the stakeholders and society.

The new leadership team will leverage on the capabilities that BAIPHIL has developed over the years particularly the rich resource of talents and expertise of its members and the support of the member-banks. The team will also maximize the synergies arising from our partnerships with the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, subject matter experts and our other stakeholders.

Our priorities for this term are geared towards strengthening the training framework to ensure a stable and meaningful structure that is responsive to the evolving needs and expectations of the banking industry. This includes, among others, conducting in-depth consultations with member-banks, development of certification courses, and applying for accreditation with the Professional Regulation Commission for our accountancy-related training program.

On the operational front, we will capitalize on the strategic location of our new office to expand our training offerings to include small group seminars. We will continue to improve our research and information exchange, rationalize our internal procedures and enhance communication among the members to raise engagement level. Moreover, we will continue to uphold our commitment to contribute to the society and community through our CSR activities.

This year is special as we will be holding our 29th National Convention on March 10-12, 2017 at Taal Vista Hotel in Tagaytay to highlight our BAIPHIL Week celebration during which we will tackle timely and relevant topics to continuously uplift the industry.

I am humbled and honored to lead BAIPHIL into its 76th year of continuing outstanding service to the banking industry. To all of you my dear colleagues, let us all walk together in this journey, hand in hand with zeal, fortitude, open mind and inclusive attitude!
