Message from the PAOF Chair

Mar 26, 2020From the PAOF Chair, PAOF

Dear Colleagues,

We are in the grips of COVID-19.  Who could have imagined a month ago that this novel Corona Virus would have swept the world with such ruthless efficiency. This brings to mind the ever-increasing importance of the Power of the Pan-American, a multinational organization like our association in times like this.  We have been offering educational webinars to share information on COVID-19 and to collaborate and share information and experiences.  This is very important.
At this moment where millions are working from home, one of the most important things is the network of people from different regions that is creating a real world view of this global problem.  Through this network we can encourage each other; we can support each other.  No one is alone and no community is exempt.  

Through the internet we can continue to grow and strengthen the Power of the Pan-American.  We must encourage this sharing of ideas and experiences.  That’s why is so important to support the Pan-American and its educational programs.  We are supporting our future and the future of the next generation.
