POWER Chapter to provide DES Certification Scholarship

Few industries were as disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic as the meetings, events, and hospitality sector. Everyone involved in our industry was either laid off or furloughed or knows someone who was.

The PCMA POWER Chapter is here to help in aiding in the recovery and reskilling of our industry. The chapter will be funding a Digital Events Strategist (DES) scholarship for one of its members in 2021!

Earning the Digital Event Strategist certification will give you the tools to:

  • Plan, produce and measure digital and hybrid events from start to finish
  • Monetize digital events through fresh pricing and sponsorship strategies
  • Evaluate and choose the most sophisticated tech solutions

Going forward, a portion of all registrations for POWER Chapter events will go towards this DES scholarship. Details on how to apply for this scholarship will be coming later this year.

Until then, please help the chapter help one of its own, by signing up for future POWER Chapter virtual or in-person events, or by making a donation by contacting
