On July 17, Joel R. Amores of the LRA’s Financial Service, was assigned as Acting Program Manager of the LRA-CARP.
Amores entered the service in 1982 as a Casual Clerk with the then National Land Titles and Deeds Registration Administration. He made his way through to the position of Utility Worker before earning his professional eligibility in 1992. In 2011 he was promoted to Supervising Administrative Officer.
Before being assigned to head the LRA-CARP, he concurrently held the post of Acting Chief Security Officer and assistant chief of the Budget Division.
With almost thirty-five years of government experience under his belt, Amores hopes to optimize the work at the office. “The LRA-CARP needs to be given a shot in the arm for things to be fast-tracked, so that more farmer-beneficiaries will be able to till and live on a piece of land that they call their own,” he said.
The LRA-CARP, the intermediate office between the Land Registration Authority and the Department of Agrarian Reform, is mandated to work for the redistribution of public and private agricultural lands to landless farmers and farmworkers, regardless of any tenurial arrangement.
