PCMA launches ‘Pay What You Can’ initiative for training events

The New York Area Chapter of the Professional Convention Management Association (NYPCMA) recently rolled out the Planner Subsidy programme, which allows planner members to participate in its events free of charge.

A response to budget cuts, this programme allows planner members to request this subsidy directly from NYPCMA. The chapter compiles the list of requests and follows up with an email to all its supplier members.

To take the initiative to the next level and allow more meeting professionals to participate, NYPCMA is offering ‘Pay What You Can’ for their next Roundtable Workshop, which will be held on 9 June at The New Yorker Hotel from 11am to 2pm.

This workshop, sponsored by Detroit Convention and Visitors Bureau, will provide attendees with the opportunity to engage in discussions about a variety of topics currently affecting our industry. Moderators will frame the topics in the current market and open the discussion for attendees to share knowledge, ideas, best practices, possible future trends and problem resolution.

The minimum fee to attend this event is only $25 per person compared to the standard $45-55, and the ‘Pay What You Can’ offer is applicable to all NYPCMA  members and non-members.

“Diana Brady, our director of programmes, took our initiative one step further. For the first time since NYPCMA incorporated in 1993, ‘Pay What You Can’ is offered to our members in direct response to the current economic downturn that has impacted the meetings industry,” said Dawn Rockas, President of NYPCMA.
