The selection also aimed to broaden cooperation networks, especially between Argosari Village and the LP3M of UMY.

Hence, we chose UMY as the third party assisting the selection process. Hopefully, we will acquire a leader who is honest, trusted, and professional. Indeed, he/she can portray good examples for people.”
