I am President and founder of Intermedia Communications Training, Inc. I began my career as a journalist broadcasting worldwide from the US, at the Voice of America. This gave me the greatest education in international affairs. In 1999, I started my own communications training company focusing on international economics and international development. My clients are dedicated organizations and individuals who want to change the world. I work with The World Bank, the UN, the IMF, and ngo’s like the WWF. I am lucky that I only work with people whose goal is transformation — in themselves, and in the world. As an immigrant from Portugal, I would like to contribute my advice and knowledge to the Diaspora Council.

Carlson Berenanda Connor



We are a relatively young organization, founded in 1996 in response to a very destructive hurricane that struck Anguilla on September 5th, 1995.
I served as Vice President for Nine years.Since then I have been duly elected as President from then until now.

MISSION:

The Anguilla Progressive Association of new York, Inc. (APANY) is a 501 (c) 3 corporation, charted in the State of New York by Anguillians to assist Anguillians at home and abroad, and whereas prominently included i that broad mission. APANY is committed to provide assistance for the educational social, economic and cultural need of Anguillians.

Some of our major goals are:

APANY strives to carry on the philanthropic ideas of the previous
organizations, such as The Anguilla Progressive Society of New York that
was started in New York in 1923; and the Sons an Daughters of Anguilla
of New Jersey. Membership in the Association is open to any person who
shares a common interest in promoting the goals and objective of the
Association. APANY also works with several organizations in Anguilla to
accept contributions in North America.

To conduct activities which are charitable, educational, and cultural
to unite all people who are interested in the island of Anguilla
To provide the goodwill and general welfare of its members
To provide assistance to persons in need
To activities for the elderly and youth
To provide scholarship awards
To provide mentors to assist and encourage students who receive scholarship.
To sponsor and support cultural programs in the performing and visual arts
To conduct activities which are charitable, educational and cultural in nature, both for our own members, and for
Anguillians, individuals and groups alike, wherever they reside.

our major vehicle for accomplishing these goals is through fund raising activities and gifts received from other charitable agencies in the US. Our activities are ongoing. The money raised from these activities is used primarily to purchase supplies and equipment for the youth of Anguilla. To this date, these are some of the activities in which we have been engaged.

Our most outstanding project for which we are raising funds is to build a community center in Anguilla. This center will replace the former one which was built by the Anguilla progressive Society of new York and the Sons and daughters of Anguilla in New Jersey, and which has now been incorporated in the Albena Lake Hodge Comprehensive School (ALHCS) to house their Music Department. We strive to carry on the philanthropic ideals of the previous organizations. When the Community Center with its theater and other meeting facilities,for seniors, the Anguilla Diabetic Association, its Olympic style swimming pool, and other sports facilities, would have been completed, we the members of APANY would have fulfilled the goal of repaying the former societies on behalf of the younger generations of Anguilla, and we would have fulfilled our goal of providing a venue for cultural programs in the performing and visual arts.

Our organization takes care of its members as well. We organize activities that keep us in contact with one another, giving us that moral support which we so often need in our sojourn away from home. We provide a forum where members can participate in activities that are cultural, social and economic. On an annual basis we honor hardworking and outstanding members,as well as Anguillians in general,wherever they reside, for their continued contributions to their respective communities or institutions where they serve with distinction. And though mentioned last, they are by no means the least, we recognize our high school and college graduates encourage them to forge ahead to achieve their educational goals.

On March 2012 , the Anguilla Progressive Association of New York, Inc. and the Optimist Club of Anguilla signed a MOU. The purpose of this MOU is to establish the general framework in which the Parties will collaborate. Under its overall mission, APANY is authorized to accept tax deductible contributions that may be use for any eligible charitable purpose in the United States and Anguilla.
