ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – (July 2, 2008) – The 29th Philippine Nurses Association of America (PNAA) Annual National Convention with the theme “Powering the Passion for Nursing!” will be held at the Radisson Resort Hotel in South Padre Island, Texas from July 16 to July 20, 2008. The five-day convention will feature an array of topics that will enhance leadership, professional development, clinical excellence, continuing education, and achievement of personal goals. Major sponsor of this event is Western Union, it’s fourth consecutive partnership.

“With Western Union, we constantly try to promote knowledge and professional excellence within the community we serve, and partnering with PNAA allows us to provide further education and leadership within the community of Filipino nurses,” said Shirleen Velasquez, senior marketing manager, US Outbound Philippines. “We are very proud and honored to be supporting the PNAA year after year.”

As in the past, this year’s national convention will include an array of professional seminars, and a new 5K run activity was added. The run is set for Saturday, July 19 at 6:00 am and promises to bring an outdoor networking and exercising opportunity to all participants. The five-day convention is a forum for nurses to share their views and experiences on clinical excellence, technology commitment, professional education and community involvement to power the passion for nursing. More than 200 Filipino nurses are expected to attend.

“We truly value Western Union's support each year," said Leo-Felix M. Jurado, President-Elect of the PNAA. "Western Union's continuous generosity and dedication to the future of Filipino nurses and the U.S. healthcare industry is very much appreciated."

Established in 1979, PNAA has close to 5,000 members from 37 chapters all over the United States. Most of these nurses are actively working in hospitals, home health care programs, government agencies, long-term care facilities, colleges of nursing and other health care providers.

With a $12 transfer fee for sending up to $800, your choice of payout options --U.S. Dollar* or Philippine Peso, and customer service representatives that can speak Tagalog, Western Union makes sending money home easy and convenient. Customers can also send money with a credit card over the phone by calling 1-877-PERA-ITO, or online at westernunion.com.

In United States and Canada, Western Union has nearly 50,000 Agent locations. And there are more than 7,100 Western Union Agent locations in Philippines where receivers can collect money. Proper identification, such as a personal identification card, is required to receive payout. Effective July 1, 2008, all inbound money transfers to the Philippines from abroad are subject to the 0.15% of principal Documentary Stamp Tax (DST) as required by the Philippines Government Bureau of Internal Revenue regulations.
