Since its establishment in 1984, the organization has grown significantly in its membership and continues to make great strides in cultural, social, and economic arenas.
The mission of the PAANC is to preserve cultural heritage, foster education and social exchange, and provide humanitarian assistance and services in the wake of natural or economic disasters regardless of geographical location, but especially in North Carolina and in the Philippines.
