PAAM 24th Biennial Convocation Postponed

Dear PAAMily,

It is with deep regret, coupled with the latest updates from local and national health organization, your Executive Committee, after much prayerful discussion and consideration, have voted to postpone the 24th Biennial Convocation slated for June 25 – June 28, 2020 in Northern California.  What this means is that this convocation will resume at the next convocation date in 2022 and in Northern California.  Exact dates to be determined.

This was a very difficult decision your Executive Committee had to make but felt it was in the best interest of all concerned considering the every changing situation with the COVID-19 virus.

Much thanks to the Planning Team from the Northern California Nevada Conference for the hard work in pre-planning this event.  Keep that same energy for the next two years!

In order to postpose this convocation, your Executive Committee also voted to suspend the following B-Laws:

ARTICLE IV Officers.  Section 1; PARA B

Your current Executive Officers has graciously agreed to stay on for another term until the next convocation.  Thank you!

For those of you who have already registered for the convocation if you would like a refund, please email our Registrar, Mitchi Reyes (, otherwise your registration will be applied to the 2022 convocation.  Please make your requests by the end of this month.

We pray that all of you will be cautious in dealing with COVID-19 virus and follow instructions of your local health department and the CDC.

We leave you with this Scripture from Philippians 4:6-7

“Don’t worry about anything, but in all your prayers ask God for what you need, always asking him with a thankful heart.  And God’s peace, which is far beyond human understanding, will keep our hearts and minds safe in union with Christ Jesus”
