I have great news to share with you! I have joined new Ning Management Team, as its Membership / Events Director. I spent the past few weeks exploring all the ideas with Bob Hunter and happy to report I look forward to join him & the team. As many of you know, I have been a resident of Boquete for a few years and very active in many community matters. It also helps that I have a heritage background in Panama as part of the latin culture and also raised in the United States. I understand the differences and dynamic's of the expat community and hope my experiences I share can help the Ning community. Although I am traveling for a few months, from afar, I am still very involved with all the happenings of our town. I do plan on returning over the next few months, with frequent travels in between for my new business opporuntities.
It is exciting to see the direction the new Ning management is taking and in turn, the tremendous opportunities this new direction will present to the community. Far from personal attacks and bickering, (but still enjoying stimulating differences). Ning will focus on spotlighting the good, the innovative, and the unique. Enhancing the beauty of our town and all the good it has to offer; Its people, businesses, places, nature and much more. Ning will strive to be all its members hope it to be and Ning will work hard with our members to make Boquete a continued great place to live.
A new service we will soon be offering to our members is a “Hard-to-Get” products in Panama service; We will be opening a portal service where these liked by all, but hard-to-find, items are readily available by request, at affordable prices. ( you request, and we will have a team in place to purchase in the U.S. and deliver right to you in Boquete at a small add on fee.
Ning hopes to be a community portal where all residents, visitors and will-be residents can discuss issues and resolve any problems that the community may face, in an amicable tone. There will be community events of interest to all: Select fairs, festivals, clubs and so much more we look to hosts. Please be patient and offer your ideas to me.
With the input from all you, I hope to make Ning a better “go to”source for all. I look forward to hearing from all of you and thank you in advance for your support in this new venture. With ideas from you and hard work from me, this will be a success!
