Aves conferred as father of brgy civil registration

         THE Philippine Association of Civil Registrars (PACR) through its President Dorotheo O. Lacbain Jr., a municipal civil registrar—conferred to Director Salvador A. Aves of the National Statistics Office, Region 10 the title Father of Barangay Civil Registration System (BCRS)" during the 5th Regional Convention on Barangay Civil Registration System held on October 11-12, 2012 at Grand Caprice Restaurant and Convention Center in Cagayan de Oro City. NSO Administrator and Civil Registrar General Carmelita N. Ericta with Director Lourdes Hufana of the Civil Registry Department and more than 1,700 participants witnessed the conferment of title to Mr. Aves. Earlier, Mr. Aves conceptualized and implemented the Barangay Civil Registration System (BCRS) whenhe introduced it in Region 10 as its flagship project then and was aggressively implemented in provinces of Bukidnon and Agusan del Sur. His idea of BCRS was conceived largely due to his concern for the less privileged and deprived sector of the populace, the indigenous peoples. BCRS was introduced with the belief that if civil registration is conveyed to the barangay level, the recognized constraints will be countered; thus, extending the civil registration services to the barangay constituents. The objective of the project is to include the IPs and Muslims in the Civil Registration System, thereby including them in the privileges that complement those who are registered. It was a humble contribution and vehicle in instituting change that could propel them towards the mainstream of Philippine society, while at the same time protecting their distinct cultural practices and traditions as guaranteed by the Constitution. BCRS has been adopted by other regions until it has been practiced nationwide. It also gained recognition in Asia and the Pacific as a viable model of improving the registration of births. The German agency, GTZ, got interested in trying this scheme in Indonesia where civil registration cum population administration system was established. Mr. Aves was also conferred the titled "Father of Philippine Association of Building Officials "in October 28, 2003 at the Philippine Convention Center, Manila in recognition of his efforts in unifying the Building Officials into one cohesive and united group empowered to plan and amend the National Building Code, thereby making it responsive to the changing times. This was triggered when Mr. Aves realized that the quality of private building construction statistics processed by NSO was deteriorating after the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) ceased to exercise supervision over building officials due to the implementation of the Local Government Code.
