AUSTIN, TX, January 9, 2017

PCMA (Professional Convention Management Association) announced today the launch of the business events industry’s Giving Good online resource.

This comprehensive online resource enables event organizers to find, vet and book community impact projects. This industry resource provides a snapshot of key information organizers need to add a give-back element to their event. Features include the ability to connect with other event organizers, get additional information from destination service departments, or reach out to the community impact project directly for more information.  Giving Good was design to be an organizer’s first stop when booking community outreach programs.

Giving Good began with an Innovation Grant from ASAE in 2014, to assist in getting the project initiated. In 2015 PCMA created a beta site via their Conscious Meeting Project, initially launched at Convening Leaders in January 2016 with 13 supporting destinations. Immediately, the resource received rave reviews from destinations and event organizers alike. With the support of ASAE, DMAI, IAEE, and MPI, Giving Good is well on its way to being an essential industry resource for event organizers. There are over 30 destinations now featuring their community impact projects on Giving Good and it is growing daily…

“We are thrilled to be able to launch this industry resource benefitting business event professionals looking to incorporative a give-back element to their event,” said Deborah Sexton, President and CEO, PCMA.  “The support of the major industry organizations has catapulted this project to the next level expanding its reach to all event organizers.  In the coming year, we look forward gathering and reporting on social impact data showcasing the many positive outcomes of business events.”
