The name BEVERLY RAMSEY-MOORE is respected by ALL, this is due to my unquestionable track record in leadership and governance. Just to name a few:
Team Re-Build represents Strong leadership You Can Trust. We believe in the institution Pan Trinbago. This Organization is the largest cultural entity in Trinidad and Tobago and was formally incorporated by an Act of Parliament. Act 5 of 1986 conferred extensive powers on the organization to act locally and internationally in all manner to further the development of the steel pan and to protect the interest and welfare of its members.
We must always put our members first and never abuse the granted power as enshrined in the Act and our constitution for personal aggrandizement and the betrayal of the membership. What is happening in the organization today must never raise its ugly head again. No Executive must be a law unto itself. Our leaders must always be held accountable and our constitution must empower its members to treat with leaders who have abrogated their responsibilities and have treated the membership with contempt.
Change is Coming, We will Rebuild
The Member Bands are the organization's greatest assets and must never be taken for granted. Although we are facing challenges they are not insurmountable. Pan spirit is resilient, and we know without any shadow of doubt that we will Rebuild, and we will Recover. Tough times do not last but tough people do.
To Rebuild we must uproot the culture of corruption, mismanagement, wastage, misappropriation and laziness and stand on pillars of Honesty, Integrity, Openness, Fairness, Productivity and Excellence.
PAN is Community
PAN is Industry
PAN is Prosperity
Never again will the pan community be hewers of wood and drawers of water. We will work towards improving our operations, build skills and provide better service to our members. Through the collaborative efforts with government, NGO's and other private sector organizations Pan Trinbago will be a powerful agent of change. We are Real and Ready, highly organized, motivated and enthusiastic to get the job done.
Pan TrinBago Strong
Together We will Rebuild
My record as Chairman of the Eastern Region proves my integrity and capacity to endure under adverse conditions. I have been an advocate for the success of our fraternity. I have gone above and beyond for this association. PAN is my JOB, PAN is my JOY, PAN is my LIFE.
DENISE L. J. HERNANDEZ
I am a dynamic, forward-thinking, innovative leader with conceptual team leadership skills that no one can contest. I have been involved in the pan fraternity for the past twenty-four (24) years and served as Education officer of the Central Executive.
ASSISTANT SECRETARY CANDIDATE
My love and passion for the instrument sparked my entrepreneurial spirit for owning my very own band which led to the birth of Platinum Steel Orchestra; the only functioning ALL FEMALE steel band in our island.
Throughout my journey, the appreciation for the national instrument grew and the decision was made to contest PanTrinbago regional elections after being nominated in 2015.
I am a professional and a woman of integrity, drive and humility with leadership skills, commitment and determination. It is with a firm belief, that I believe the above-mentioned qualities, qualifications and experience mentioned fully prepares me to embark on task of rebuilding Pan Trinbago and the pan fraternity.
PUBLIC RELATIONS OFFICIER (PRO) CANDIDATE
The experience gained at the regional level and background as an educator adequately equip me with the skills necessary to design, plan and co-ordinate programmes which serve the best interest of the organisation. In my humble opinion, this is the ambit of an effective and competent Public Relations Officer.
I am an academic by nature and over the years I have listened carefully, watched closely and observed keenly those senior me and the operations of Pan Trinbago at both Regional and Central levels of the organisation. It is past time for restructuring and rebuilding, it is time for pan men and women to think about sustainability, competency, integrity, transparency and efficiency for the organisation. Gone are the days for voting popularity over capability, band over individual and friendship over the issues affecting member bands. Remember, Pan Trinbago and its executive have the responsibility to represent members in all matters pertaining to the development, growth and promotion of the steel pan but it is the membership which decides who will wield their power. I am Salisha James and I offer my service in the position of Public Relations Officer.

EDUCATION OFFICER CANDIDATE
With modern day tech it depends on type and quality of work. Oversimplification at its best. I don't buy that. What are we using video conferencing for?
To conduct meetings a video app can do that without having to travel. This was in response to the question on travel expenses.
A good idea, but with due respect, a personal touch is best in this climate. If they manage their expenses responsibly there should be no problem. Video app will work well in emergency situations. What do you think?
Agreed! Thanks for the advice, not a big fan of social media don’t have a FB account for that reason, not one to go for the likeability/click or clique contest.
I tend to filter stuff, a task-manager style of thinking, beginning with the end in mind, here’s the problem, find the solution not ANY solution (decision analysis) fix it in a timely manner, not SELL people expectations. Quality results are the operating standard.
One thing I have to remind myself is working in a 24/7 environment compared to someone who works in a 9-5 environment is “time is money” takes on a different meaning.
