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 were instrumential in the creation of the Department of Personnel Services within the Department of Public Instruction for the State of North Carolina.
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 does not require dues of its members, yet believes it is a state-wide investment for its membership to remain on the cutting edge of human resource issues.
