CHICAGO, IL — Last month PCMA President and CEO Sherrif Karamat announced an initiative to raise $250,000 to help those affected by the bushfires in Australia and the earthquakes in Puerto Rico. Karamat said that PCMA and the PCMA Foundation will immediately commit $50,000 to kick-start the initiative, and he invited business events industry stakeholders around the world to make any kind of contribution.
In addition to direct financial support through PCMA’s Industry Relief Fund, PCMA will collaborate with leaders in the affected communities to provide messaging support through PCMA’s global networks and channels.
“Doing good for people and communities in crisis is doing good for all of us,” Karamat said. “The business events industry has a rich legacy of stepping up and coming together to do good when disasters strike. This is another way of demonstrating how business events can be a catalyst for economic and social transformation.”
