As an organization aware of the growing number of millennials in the country and the important role they play in society, the Philippine Council for the Advancement of Association Executives (PCAAE) www.pcaae.org is reaching out to the youth in promoting professionalism in association governance, leadership and management through training, networking and partnerships.
On September 5, 2015, upon the invitation of the Junior Achievement Philippines (JA Philippines) www.japionline.org, Ms. Cora Conde and Mr. Octavio ‘Bobby’ Peralta, PCAAE Chair and President & CEO, respectively, conducted short learning sessions to about 100 students and members of the Junior Achievement Marketing Society (JAMS).
