PANC | 45 Years of Service

During the early 1970's, a group of trailblazing administrators, sought to form a professional organization that would address the needs of the school employee community throughout the state of North Carolina.

Over the years, PANC members have worked with the General Assembly, the State Board of Education, local school districts, and partner organizations such as NCASA and NCPAPA, to further the human capital and human resources work in North Carolina public schools.

PANC's current mission is to serve the needs of human resources professionals by providing the most essential and comprehensive training and resources available. PANC promotes the HR profession to ensure it is recognized as a quintessential partner in developing and administering all tenets of the total school program. The organization believes that membership is a state-wide investment to remain on the cutting edge of human resource issues.

PANC is currently governed by an Executive Board, which includes a president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer and immediate past president. PANC hosts a professional development conference twice yearly, and each regional group hosts regularly scheduled meetings to stay abreast of current issues and to collaborate as professional learning communities. 

Through utilization of many of the state's personnel experts, the organization remains a viable organization in influencing systemic changes in education for the citizens of North Carolina and improvement of educational outcomes for children. The fair treatment of the men and women who teach and serve them continues to be of the utmost importance.
