National Conciliation and Mediation Board

Regional Branch No. 5

17 May 2021

Legazpi City – Rey Kelly L. Larce swears in as the new Administrative Assistant III of the National Conciliation and Mediation Board Regional Branch 5   in a simple ceremony held at the branch office on 28 April 2021.

Regional Branch Director Reynaldo S. Foncardas officiated the oath of office while the other personnel stood as witnesses.

“He rightly deserves the promotion,” said Director Foncardas.  “He is hardworking and performs his tasks diligently.”

Mr. Larce was promoted from Administrative Aide VI which he held for only less than three years.  He served as in-charge of Information Technology (IT) of the Branch aside from being the Supply Officer.  Having graduated from Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering at University of Sto. Tomas – Legazpi, he earned his license as Electronics Technician and an Ubiquiti® Broadband Wireless Specialist. Formerly, he was a faculty member of AMA Computer College of Legazpi at the Engineering Department.  

When interviewed about his plans for himself and for the office, Larce beamed with pride saying, “I hope to finish my Masters’ Degree at Bicol University as soon as possible.  Likewise, I also want to study and learn more about the programs and services of the Board so that I can assist in promoting the mandate of the office.”

“NCMB is more of a family to me.  That is why, I feel I am in the best working environment.  It is like a second home to me where my values are honed and nurtured.”

“My family is the major citadel that encourages me to work hard and do what is right, always.  I am blessed and wholly thankful to God to have a regular job and be promoted even at this time of pandemic.  This is what keeps me motivated to work hard and even exceed the boundaries of my skills,” he explained.

Administrative Officer IV Roslyn A. Borcelis was all praises for Mr. Larce, “He can do research on the procurement process and requirements.  He works independently and can meet deadlines.  He is also polite and respectful.”

 Jennifer Mae A. Novela, Administrative Officer III, has this to say regarding Mr. Larce as an employee and co-worker, “I appreciate his willingness and eagerness to learn.  As a newbie, he learned the ropes of his duties by studying and researching about it.  He will ask only when he wants to clarify something.” 

“He is an on-the-go co-worker whom one can ask for assistance.  I admire his spirit of voluntarism wherein you can expect him to undertake any task.  He also knows how to handle work pressure.  And most importantly he admits mistakes.” – fin
