FINANCIAL STANDING

The PHA is financially stable and is able to support operational expenses of its board meetings which are held quarterly and as the need arises. The revenues of the PHA come principally from registration fees in the annual conference, membership dues and the sale of the Historical Bulletin. The PHA receives financial support from the NCCA and the PSSC for its annual conference. The PHA receives support from Vibal Publishing Inc. for conference kit and other materials. However, the PHA needs to generate funds to support expenses incurred in seminars that it holds for free such as the Pocket Lectures which are for teachers of Araling Panlipunan in the National Capital Region.
