Americas: Fund Launched to Help Meeting Planners in Crisis


In partnership with:


by Sue Pelletier 

Kudos to the meetings industry pros behind the launch of The Meetings Industry Fund, a 501(c)(3) foundation that will provide financial help to people who plan, execute, deliver, and support meetings during their time of need. The foundation has an ambitious goal of kicking off the fund by raising $100,000 in 100 days, but that would be enough seed money to start helping meeting planners as soon as possible.

As one of the fund’s cofounders (and one of MeetingsNet’s IdeaXchange experts), Maritz’s David Peckinpaugh said in a press release, “Our industry is made up of amazing people and organizations that do fantastic work on behalf of our industry. The one gap we noticed was for an organized effort to help out individuals in crisis, and The Meetings Industry Fund is all about them. We know our industry will pitch in to help our colleagues who have short-term financial needs.”
