As part of its information dissemination activities, PCC has created the Visitor’s Assistance Ofiice (VAO) at the Office of the Executive Director (OED), manned by staff of the Information and training Division (ITD). VAO’s main function is to receive the various sectors that visit the facilities of the agency. Orientation of the programs and services is being done through a 15 minute film showing, followed by a brief tour to the gene pool and milking parlor.
Information materials about the PCC’s programs and services and prepared for the visitors/group of visitors whose visit is pre-arranged. Unexpected/ walk-in visitors, however, are also being extended appropriate assistance and/or necessary orientation. The whole orientation process which includes tour of facilities lasts about 47 minutes.
