This historical review of the contributions of a professional organisation across three decades is noteworthy since it will serve to emphasize strongly the value of Home Economics in nation building through its contributions to various sectors, inter alia, in Education, Health, Family life and community well-being. It is particularly pleasing that the capacity and capability of mainly Caribbean women, contributing positively in national and international fora, on development issues, is clearly demonstrated through this work.

The contents of this book attests to our longevity rivaled only by West Indian cricket. It is a sacrificial  investment as we continue to fight the battle for recognition of our profession and to bridge the gaps in our practice between home, school community and our personal lives. This chronicle offers valuable insights into strategies and structures that foster permanence within such an organization while remaining effective in service towards fulfilling its mandate.
