Chapter News


We asked chapter members Roberta Kravitz & Elaine Rothenhaus why they joined PCMA:

Roberta Kravitz

As a long-time member of PCMA, I recognize that there are several things that set our community apart – a strong and committed membership, a unique and truly international composition of business events professionals, active and collegial exchange at meetings and a long-time commitment to supporting the development of the next generation.  And all of this expertly facilitated by the PCMA team headquartered in Chicago, IL, USA.  PCMA has been my “home” for almost 20 years, and when I look around me at PCMA events, I see dear friends and brilliant colleagues who have inspired and sustained me.  Join us.  Support us.  Learn what we can do together.”

“When I first became a sales manager, I was encouraged to join many associations so thaI could network.  My first experience with PCMA was attending PCMA Convening Leaders.  As I attended the sessions and breakouts in hopes of networking and meeting people, I became aware of the valuable educational sessions PCMA offered.  Every year that I get to attend

After attending LEAP 2015, and again energized from the education, I was motivated to become involved in my local chapter.  Thanks to the wonderful PCMA NCC Board Members that welcomed me warmly as a volunteer, I really enjoy helping where I can and contributing towards PCMA NCC.  I strongly encourage everyone to become involved as a volunteer because you really do get a valuable experience when you give back. 
 Convening Leaders, I continue to be amazed at what I learn and am able to take away both professionally and personally.

If nothing else, I hope everyone attends LEAP 2018.  Let us show you the value of the program and education scheduled.  I hope you continue to be a member of PCMA NCC and I hope you ask me how you can get involved.  We have opportunities for everyone based on how much time they want to volunteer.”
