In historical terms, a legacy is something that is handed down from one period of time to another period of time. Often it means something handed down from an ancestor or predecessor. In loose terms it is sometimes said that countries or civilizations can leave a legacy that will be remembered for a long time.

Highlights of 39th PNAA Annual Convention

Excitement was apparent in everyone’s face as we entered the beautiful and spacious lobby of Hyatt Regency Hotel at the Hudson River in New Jersey! It was July 24, 2018 when delegates from all over the US started to arrive for the Annual Convention. Many see each other only once a year and so the scene was like a homecoming event with hugs, kisses, laughter, etc. 

On July 25, the President, Dino Doliente III convened his Executive Board with PNAAF President Merlita Velasquez and Executive Director, Annie Vista. This was his last administration meeting and final reports were presented by the Officers and Committee Chairs. The past two years were very productive and a long list of achievements was presented by the President. The afternoon was the COP (Circle of Presidents) meeting, then Regional meeting followed by the Town Hall meeting with the President.
