The first ever Coffee Table Book of the National Statistics Office will be launched at 3:30 p.m today (January 11, 2013) at the Eaton Hall of the Mallberry Suites of this city. This coffee table book is authored by Dr. Salvador A. Aves, Regional Director of the National Statistics Office, Region 10. Highlight of the book launch is the turning over of the copy of the book to the Administrator of the National Statistics Office, Hon. Carmelita N. Ericta. This will be followed by Administrator Carmelita N. Ericta’s message.
The NSO R-10 Coffee Table Book titled “The Pursuit of Excellence: Defining Extraordinary Moments” is startlingly simple in its concept, but very rich in substance , and even richer in its vision to share to fellow public servants the commitment to serve above its given mandate- the commitment to do extraordinary things .
Unlike the books which Dir. Aves published in the past few years which are mostly about civil registration laws and leadership and management in public service, this book is a complete departure from the previous ones. It chronicles the culture of innovation and how the team accepted the challenge to think out of the box and to innovate concepts instead of adhering to the status quo. It captures how NSO Region 10 has committed itself to a paradigm shift in public service, and how it has sustained for 19 consecutive years its success in obtaining first place in the Annual National Field Awards.Together with Administrator Carmelita Ericta are the Deputy Administrator, Madame Paula Monina Collado and Mr. Joseph Cajita of the Central Office.
