On April 14, 2014, the Pan American Association of Philadelphia will hold its annual Pan American Day and Scholarship Luncheon at the Union League of Philadelphia. Luncheon guests will hear a keynote address by the Mexican Ambassador to the United States, Eduardo Medina Mora. Ambassador Medina Mora has had a distinguished career in the public and private sectors, and has played important roles in international forums and negotiations, including the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) negotiations. In addition, the Association will award two major undergraduate scholarships and recognize graduating senior pursuing Latin American studies at area colleges and universities.

Since its founding in 1940, the Association has been dedicated to promoting cultural, educational and economic activities that increase understanding and cooperation among the peoples of the Americas. The Association is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to advancing Pan-Americanism in the Greater Philadelphia region. Today, the region is home to more than 600,000 residents who trace their roots to Latin America, so the need for greater cultural understanding has become even more relevant.

Please purchase tickets early as we expect a sold-out audience of policymakers and leaders from business, cultural and academic institutions in the greater Philadelphia region with an interest in Pan-Americanism. There will be a networking reception from 11:45 AM – 12:15 PM, with lunch beginning at 12:15 PM and ending promptly at 1:30 PM. 

The Pan American Association is pleased to announce that Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett and Philadelphia Mayor Michael A. Nutter will welcome attendees and participate in the scholarship award program.
