Synergy is our battle Cry!

 

When people work together in a particularly fruitful way that produces an effect greater than the sum of their individual effects…that is SYNERGY.  “It connotes dynamism, action and thinking forward. It’s all about hyper connection, being able to reach out to as many partners as possible. It is the only way to stay relevant”. That is what our 2019 PANA president Chito Maniago stressed.

This year, Maniago sees that happening with everyone’s cooperation!  With 300 member organizations represented by the exceptional and the outstanding brand builders in the industry , meeting at least once a month in the General Membership Meeting, exchanging ideas on best practices and affirming each other’s talents, PANA is confident to achieve its goal. “We encourage all members to be involved by joining the different committees” Maniago said. “In so doing, one finds an avenue to contribute significantly to the organization and to be of service to the industry resulting to personal fulfillment and network expansion. “

There are 7 committees which organize the major events of PANA .
