What Members Say

In the brief time MENACA  has been in existence, I have benefitted exceptionally from membership.  I have made several key business connections that have resulted in major deals for my company.  I have been published, and had access to numerous high level decision makers in government.  MENACA has initiated a Womens Entrepreneurs Initiative that will benefit hundreds of Middle Eastern women and most MENACA members.

Sharakpur Financial Integrity Services continues to benefit from its membership in MENACA as an excellent coalition of diverse in-house practitioners and experts of the Region.  We, together, deliver what we promise–indeed a rare trait in the otherwise transient businesses in any capital city of the world.
