Effective February 4, 2015, DOLE- Zamboanga del Norte Field Office (ZDNFO) will now be under the stewardship of Mrs. Lourdes Balais-Amores who formally accepted the symbolic key of responsibility as the new Chief of the said office during a simple turn-over ceremony held in the reception area of the DOLE-Zamboanga Del Norte Field Office on February 3, 2015.

Maam Luding-as she is fondly called-is a seasoned program-implementer of DOLE who rose from the ranks with Senior Clerk as her entry position in the department. She hails from Labason, Zamboanga del Norte and is cognizant about socio-economic conditions prevailing in the Province. When asked what's on her priority list, Maam Luding said, " I would certainly ensure that the core mandates of the department are faithfully implemented at the grassroots level as I hopes to strengthen the partnership and support from intermediaries and established linkages."
Director Cano, in his message, emphasized that the movement of personnel is in line with the policy of the department of continuous service improvement wherein we strive to enhance our service through partnership with stakeholders. He also extended his gratitude to the predecessor-Aileen Mondejar-for having successfully steered DOLE-ZDNFO for the last 9 months. He summed up by saying that together, we can make a difference.
