Claire Smith, Chair of PCMA’s Board of Directors, presented the 2018 Chairman’s Award at the Convening Leaders event in Pittsburgh to the association’s own staff, for hard work and dedication.
“Last year was exciting, yet challenging, for the organisation as it embarked on a journey of self-reflection and realignment towards achieving our vision,” Smith said. “But PCMA employees persevered and embraced change to deliver amazing results, including the 63rd annual Convening Leaders. We are all better for their passion, hard work and commitment to PCMA and the business events industry.”
Past recipients of the award include Janet Tan-Collis, President of the Singapore Association of Convention and Exhibition Organisers and Suppliers (SACEOS) and the founder and CEO of East West Planners in Singapore, and Isabel Bardinet, CEO of the European Society of Cardiology.
Headquartered in Chicago, PCMA has 17 chapters throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico, with members in more than 40 countries. More information: pcma.org
