Dear PANSA members,

We have made it! As the year comes to a close we can all agree It has been a phenomenal one, filled with the most amazing friendships, sharing of information, discovering ourselves through empowering learning initiatives, and most importantly, continuing to LOVE what we do!

We have shown our resilience to challenges thrown at us and have remained professional and compassionate. Our members are not just members, but family – a family of individuals sharing the same challenges and celebrating each other’s successes. Our third group of Platinum Assistant Excellence Awards were celebrated, and a new tribe came to the fore to take on the legacy of delivering exceptional peer-led initiatives. 2024 promises to be a year filled with many wonderful memory-making moments which we will all get to participate in, and we are so excited to share it with you!

We wish you all a blessed Christmas and Happy Holidays. May 2024 bring you much joy, happiness, health and new and exciting challenges that will allow you to spread your wings and grow!

Happy Holidays!

Cathy & Susan
