All barangays are set to conduct the 2nd barangay assembly on October 9, 2016 with the theme: “Para sa Isang Tunay na Pagbabago, Mag-MASID, Makisali at Makiisa sa Isang Maka-MASAng Asembleya”. This is in consistent to Proclamation No. 260 issued on September 11, 2011 declaring every second Sunday of October as Barangay Assembly.
The barangay assembly is an institutionalized mechanism to ensure maximum peoples participation in barangay governance. A showcase of barangay assembly day is to be held at Barangay Manoc-Manoc, Malay, Aklan.
All barangays are to undertake activities on the day of the assembly such as delivery of the State of the Barangay Address and discuss barangay compliance to national laws and issuances and issues and concerns affecting the barangay.
The Faith-Based Organizations within the barangay, Ugnayan ng Barangay at Simbahan (UBAS), civil society and other community organizations are also enjoined to take part in the assembly by discussing their involvement in project monitoring and evaluation and in the advocacy for good local governance.
Enclosed in DILG Memorandum Circular 2016-124, SILG Sueno instructed the barangay officials to conduct public awareness activities within the barangay in order to cause the participation of barangay constituents such as but not limited to medical or dental mission, putting up of tiangge, and cultural presentations. Likewise, the hanging of barangay assembly posters or banners in conspicuous places like the barangay hall, plaza, main streets, market or talipapa and in any tricycle, jeepney or bus terminal in the locality is suggested to further the dissemination of information on the conduct of the barangay assembly.
