The Pan American Association of Philadelphia is delighted to announce the 2015 Pan American Day and Annual Scholarship Luncheon featuring a keynote address by the Panamanian Ambassador to the United States Emanuel González-Revilla. Ambassador González-Revilla will report on the results of the 7th Summit of the Americas being hosted by Panama on April 10-11. The Summit theme is “Prosperity with Equity: The Challenge of Cooperation in the Americas.”

Since its founding in 1940, the Association has been dedicated to promoting cultural, educational and economic activities to increase understanding and cooperation among the peoples of the Americas. In particular, the Association has advanced a dialogue on Cuba over the past year, including a major address last year by the former head of the U.S. Interest Section in Havana and a panel discussion of Cuba experts to be held this Spring. This year’s Summit provides the opportunity for an important dialogue on the role of Cuba in the Americas, and Cuba has been invited to participate for the first time.

The Association also is committed to providing financial support to area college and university students pursuing Latin American studies. This year, the Association is again conducting a competitive process to award three major scholarships and recognize graduating students pursuing Latin American studies. We welcome your suport for these efforts.

The Pan American Association is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to advancing the concept of “Panamericanismo” among the residents of the Greater Philadelphia region. Today, the Philadelphia region is home to more than 500,000 residents who trace their roots to Latin America and the need for greater cultural understanding expressed by our founders has become much more relevant. We eagerly await your attendance at our April luncheon!
