Valerie Sumner, PCMA Foundation Chair.

The PCMA Foundation has launched a new reskilling campaign with the goal of helping events professionals recover from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on the industry.

The Accelerating Reskilling Initiative aims to raise $250,000 by the end of 2020 to support the immediate reskilling of 1000 business events professionals.

“Together as a community, we can bring these educational opportunities to our industry,” said Valerie Sumner, PCMA Foundation Chair.

“The events industry has always been generous when a need has arisen, this time is no exception. We cannot do this alone; it will take all of us working together, towards one goal, for our industry to recover.

“We know funds are short for many of us, even the smallest contribution has tremendous reach. Through the efforts of our community, we can accelerate recovery for our entire industry.”
