About the PCMA Education Foundation

We fund individual scholarships and critical projects for the future of the business events industry.

The road to greatness is not always paved with equal opportunity. The PCMA Education Foundation’s aim is for our community to own that road for the meetings and business events industry.

We care deeply about fueling our industry’s future.

Help us support educational scholarships for promising individuals and fund critical projects to lead this great industry into an incredible future.
