Executive Order No. 325 s.1996 provides for the creation by the Regional Development Council (RDC) of an Executive Committee (ExCom) to act on matters that require immediate attention for and on behalf of the Council when it is not in session. Section 6 of the said EO provides that the ExCom shall comprise one-fourth of the total membership of the fully-constituted Council.
Considered as automatic members are the Chairpersons of the four Sectoral Committees (SeComs), in addition to the four officials of the Council to include the Chair, Co-Chair, Vice-Chair and Secretary.
In addition to the eight, the reconstituted ExCom shall include the chief executives of the five Provincial Local Government Units and four City Local Government Units. This is to ensure their full participation and involvement in the deliberation of undertakings to address the socio-economic issues and concerns, where local governments play important roles such as the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, the implementation of Republic Act 11469, otherwise known as the “Bayanihan to Heal As One Act” and the BP2 Program. The Private Sector Representatives (PSRs) shall be allocated the remaining slots to complete the prescribed number of ExCom members. The PSRs shall convene and choose from among themselves their representatives in the ExCom
The EXCOM shall perform the following additional specific functions:
- Discuss Advisory Committee (ADCOM) follow through activities;
- Agree on the region’s position on proposed bills and deliberate on regional proposals to amend laws; and
