Hi Everyone,March 2017 is almost behind us… Time flies when your having fun; all to fast at times I might add..
We have had a very productive month, all things considered.. As usual it was very busy with research, special requests, Free advertising, and news publications, just to name a few.
We would like to extend our thanks to all members who made a contribution to our Information Network whether it was through great posts or suggestions, monitoring, researching, fact finding, graphics or writing..Even the feedback that we get regarding our projects and daily services; like the Morning Newspaper, and Currency Exchange Rates, is very helpful.. so thank you all so much. This is without a doubt a collaborative, expat effort..
A special thanks to our Advisory Board Members who are some of the best guys on the planet and offer their collective wisdom to assist with the smooth and valuable functioning of “Expat World Tagum Information Network”. Their work reflects concern, always, for providing practical services and information for Members & their families who live in and or are associated with the Philippines.
OUR MULTINATIONAL MEMBERSHIP
Our membership has grown by leaps and bounds this month. I could not begin to list all of our new friends here. It is blessing to see new members from all over the country, representing all walks of life who post and share their stories and perspectives with the rest of us. In my view this represents a healthy diversity.

Special projects that continue to be in the development stages are:
A network database for emergency contacts for friends and members which will be used to provide support for family members who may need assistance with blood, health services, missing persons etc..Should sickness or emergencies arise we would like to use this tool to connect families to the support system that you are connected with, by virtue of being an Expat.. We will be working on the creation of this database this month. If you have any thoughts please contact me… In this same vein we are commencing research for health insurance plans that may be an alternative to PhilHealth for expats… This information will be posted as we assimilate it..
An Expat World- Tagum Medical ID Card will be available over the coming months. Safety and Health is a priority for expats who are living in the Philippines.. It continues to be in the development stages but you may catch glimpses of it as the work progresses.For those of you who may not have visited our introductory website you may find it informative.
