Number of Members: 57 at present
Objectives of the Organization:
ICAD was created to promote the welfare of the operation of the Internet Cafes in Davao City, advancing the interest of the internet café operators, its stakeholders and the community.
What was the situation prevailing that made you decide to organize the internet café association in your area?
The very high cost of connectivity, the persistent issue about pornography in the internet and the complains of schoolchildren’s presence in the internet cafes were the major concerns that glued the café operators to form an industry association.
What are the problems encountered in your day to day operations in your association?
The most common problem encountered in the daily operations of the association are the same problems most industry associations encounter, operating funds. The association collects just a minimal membership fee and funds generated from conduct of events are not substantial. Another problem would be the lack of active members and officers that will carry through the objectives of the organization.
