THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF PANAMA
The American Society is non-profit, charitable, international organization. Our membership is comprised of people from the US, Panama, and citizens of all countries who are living in Panama and share our values.
The American Society was founded in November, 1931, by; Minister Roy T. Davis, Theodore McGinnis, George Novey, Sr. Robert J. Boyd, Sr. Charles F. MacMurray, Joel MCGinnis, Carl Brunner, Sr. and Dr. William James. These United States citizens, whose business affiliations had brought them together, felt the need for a formal organization to promote friendship among themselves and with Panamanians.
The Mission of the American Society of Panama (AMSOC) is to maintain and enhance positive relationships between Panamanian and U.S. citizens. Membership is open to all persons of good character who support the mission of the Society regardless of citizenship or national origin. The American Society sponsors and performs charitable works; assists groups or individuals that engage in like-minded endeavors, provides a forum for discussing calendar events; and keeps members abreast of important issues that affect our community.
AMSOC's members are comprised mainly of U.S. and Panamanian citizens, members of the business
community, personnel from the U.S. Embassy, retirees, and Panama Canal Authority employees.
