The 2018 100 + Women of IAVM campaign was a great success because of YOUR commitment to YOUR IAVM Foundation. Your donations raised over $11,000 and made it possible for five women to attend sector conferences at VenueConnect18 and two woman to go to an IAVM school.  “My heart swells watching the 100+ Women of IAVM goal getting closer. For our third year in a row we are able to change seven women’s lives with education and professional growth.” stated Kerry Painter, CVE, CEM, CMP and Director General Manager of Raleigh Convention Center, IAVM Foundation Board of Trustee member, and champion of the campaign.  Echoing her words is IAVM Foundation Board of Trustees, Chair Robyn Williams, ““It is so wonderful that women in our industry (plus some stellar men!) are coming together to support other women’s participation at VenueConnect. Even though I’m a chair’s circle donor I still make my $100 donation for this terrific Foundation program. I hope you will join me!!”

In its over 35 years, your IAVM Foundation has funded hundreds of scholarships and internships for VMS, AVSS, VenueConnect, and Sector Conferences at VenueConnect.  Through the continued support of our members, these scholarships and internships are made possible. Our success is your success and the success of the whole industry. Thank you for making a difference!
