“The advisors will meet quarterly to discuss issues, share experience, and provide one another confidential help to achieve their goals,” the Convener stated.

He said the advisory board comprises former NEC members, past senators and any other past student of an accredited private university who may be deemed to be relevant to the association based on a strong recommendation by an active associate.

Mr. Adjin Bonney, Convener of the group advised associates to bring on board their expertise and experience acquired so far in their professional careers and social lives to help achieve PUSAG dream.

He also advised students to work hard and take their studies serious by seeking knowledge at any available time.
