The seminar-workshop included a presentation on the Bohol Dairy Enterprise Program-a proposal for the Philippine Rural Development of the Philippines (PRDP) Project and lecture-discussions on the roles and responsibilities of a cooperative leader and members. On the other hand, the teambuilding activities featured sessions on leadership as well as vision setting, while workshop activities were actual setting of vision, mission, goals and strategies, and activity planning.

The two-day activity culminated with the election of Shirley E. Molina, chairperson of Untaga Multi-Purpose Cooperative as the new BoDPA president, and Jesusa J. Danila, Tamboan Multi-Purpose Cooperative chairperson as the new vice-president. Other officers of the dairy federation were elected a few weeks earlier.
