American Society of Panama (AMSOC) or American Association of Panama at Spanish Panama
If you are American and moving to Panama one of the best clubs to get into contact with is the American Society of Panama (AMSOC).
Almost half of SpanishPanama’s Spanish students are from the United States! And many of these students have been associated with this non-profit organization as it is a great way to keep in touch with news back home and US events in Panama as well as get to know fellow Americans. Coming up is the July 4 celebrations, a picnic that will actually be celebrated on July 7.
The American Association of Panama elects its own board of directors. This year the newly elected were Benny Flores as president, Bill Mariano as vice president, Hari Singh as recording secretary and Eunice Greaves as treasurer.
Later in the year a political debate will be held and vital information will be given as concerning voting and major issues affecting Americans living abroad.
The new US Ambassador to Panama, Jonathan Farrar, will likely attend future American Association of Panama events, as this is custom.
Numerous volunteer opportunities are also available, especially in the area of helping children in education and families in need, and this is a great way for Americans to keep active helping out Panama.
