PCMA Canada East Chapter at Large

Convening Leaders 2024

January 6 – 10, 2024
San Diego, CA

Representatives from your PCMA Canada East Chapter Board of Directors attended PCMA’s Convening Leaders Conference at the beginning of January in San Diego, and what a wonderful experience it was! Members are encouraged to consider this conference for future, as the education opportunities are not to be missed.

The chapter kicked off the week at the Chapter Leaders Workshop, where your President Susan Saganski, President-Elect Sandra Moniz, and Chapter Secretariat Erica Orecchio learned about the latest developments from PCMA HQ, noting valuable learnings to be applied to our Chapter this year.

Next, we joined forces with the Canada West Chapter to host our Canada Meet-Up at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina. Over 100 members joined us to network before heading over to the Opening Reception at SeaWorld.

We learned about the importance of AI (Augmented Realty) in the events industry through several innovative and engaging sessions throughout the conference, including the latest updates through PCMA’s Project SPARK, a tool that is FREE to members, so make sure you take advantage of it.

Finally, we heard President Bill Clinton and Secretary General Hilary Clinton speak on geopolitics today and how they see the future unfolding based on the current environment.
