The Impact in Action

Industry Impact


The PCMA Foundation empowers individuals and advances innovations that fuel the future of business events. It is an incubator for making personal dreams happen and turning research and innovation into tangible learning and resources that benefit our industry and community. This work is possible only through the generosity of more than 2,000 individual donors and supporters, and 250 organizations that are aligned and connected with the mission. Thanks to this generosity, in 2018, the Foundation directed over $600,000 to fund industry innovation, nurture professional development and advance student achievement.
