The Pan American Association of Philadelphia is delighted to announce the 2019 Pan American Day and Annual Scholarship Luncheon. The event will feature a keynote address by Ambassador Patrick Duddy, Director, Duke University Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, who will address current challenges and opportunities in Latin America, including Venezuela.

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. The Association also is committed to providing financial support to area college students pursuing Latin American studies. This year, the Association is again conducting a competitive process to award three major scholarships to returning students and will recognize graduating students in Latin American Studies. We welcome your support 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 increasingly important. We eagerly await your attendance at our April luncheon!

 

Keynote Speaker

Ambassador Patrick Duddy, Director, Duke University Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies.

Patrick Duddy is an American diplomat, formerly United States Ambassador to Venezuela. He currently serves as Director at Duke University’s Center for International Studies.
