Applications are Open for the Mark Henry Scholarship

Mark Henry was a friend to many in the meetings industry. He was a long time GMC member and a wonderful volunteer leader. Sadly, he passed away in December 2017. To honor his legacy, GMC PCMA has created the Mark Henry Scholarship, the purpose of which is to help members new to the industry (10 or less years) fund the costs of meeting registration and other meetings related expenses, so they can attend, experience and participate in our industry events. In 2021, because of the impact of COVID-19, applications are open to all regardless of years in the industry.

This application is open year-round. Committee review will happen twice a year after April 1st and October 9th.
