Check Out How This Chapter is Making a Difference During the Holidays


As the holiday season approaches, members of PCMA’s Rocky Mountain Chapter are making sure that this year’s celebration will be brighter for those in need.

Earlier this month, chapter members worked together to win the Meetings Industry Council of Colorado’s friendly Food Drive Competition. The competition, part of the 20th annual Serving Up Hope Luncheon, pitted PCMA-RMC against 12 other hospitality organizations. Our Rocky Mountain Chapter proved their rock star status, collecting 38 pounds of food per member -- the most among any organization with more than 125 members.

Thanks to the chapter’s hard work and the efforts of other MIC organizations, the Food Bank of the Rockies received more than 26,00 pounds of food and more than $30,000 to help distribute food to needy families throughout the region. Congrats to the chapter for their great work!
