Stuart Ruff-Lyon, 2020 Chairman of the PCMA Board of Directors, looks back on a year of challenges both personal and professional and the changes the pandemic has brought to the business events industry.
A lot of people in the organizations and communities that support the delivery of business events have been hurt as a result of the pandemic and related economic crises. Our industry will re-emerge but will be different as a result.
The PCMA Foundation wants to help business event professionals, their supplier business partners and supporting communities everywhere recover and thrive in a post-COVID world.
Accelerating Reskilling is a PCMA Foundation fundraising campaign dedicated to investing in key skillset development areas for business event industry professionals and their business partners. Our goal is to raise $250,000 by the end of this year to support the immediate reskilling of 1000 business events professionals as our industry emerges towards recovery and beyond.
