The PCMA POWER Chapter is excited to announce that it will host the inaugural PCMA U Regional event in Cleveland on April 26. The POWER Chapter, in consultation with PCMA headquarters, and in partnership with the Hilton Cleveland Downtown, will host the event for students from Mercyhurst University (Erie, Pa.) and Kent State University (Kent, Ohio), as part of its new Emerging Leaders program, launched earlier this year.
PCMA University, or PCMA U, is the premier pre-conference event for students and emerging leaders at PCMA’S annual flagship event, Convening Leaders. PCMA U programming offers students the opportunity to learn, network, and collaborate with other young professionals and emerging student leaders in the business events industry.
This inaugural regional event, as part of the POWER Chapter’s new Emerging Leaders program, will achieve two of the program’s stated goals: hosting events with relevant content to students and young professionals, and connecting the chapter’s emerging leaders with experienced industry members. Students will hear from industry leaders in a moderated panel session; they will have the opportunity to network with industry mentors; and get a behind-the-scenes look at hotel and convention center operations.
This is the first of what the chapter hopes to be many of these events, in an effort to help grow the industry’s future.
