Last June 20, 2014, following the recollection of the Elders Assembly, three new members of the CFC International Council were elected. During the elections, Jose Tale, Jose Yamamoto and Ermelo Villaroman Jr. garnered the three highest votes. They replaced outgoing IC members Ricardo Cuenca, Emmanuel Garcia and Emmanuel Dalman Jr.

The three new ICs are not really “new” as they are old-timers to the posts. Tale was Couples for Christ Chairman before he retired three years ago. Yamamoto, on the other hand, was former BCOP Director, and is still head of the Give Kare Foundation (GKare). He is very much active in the medical profession. Villaroman used to be CFC Executive Director. After he was replaced as IC, he took a corporate post in Singapore where he and his family are based right now.

The new ICs will assume office by July 1st, and on their first meeting, elect the new officers and heads of directorates.
