by: Edward Vargo, Director of Volunteers

Congratulations to the PCMA Southeast Chapter 2020 Volunteer of the Quarter (Q1): Krista Fleming, CMM, KF Events

Thank you Visit Music City and the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corporation for sponsoring the PCMA Southeast Chapter Volunteer of the Quarter and the Year program. Krista Fleming with KF Events was the recipient of our Volunteer of the Quarter award for the first quarter 2020.

Krista currently serves on our Central Florida Programs committee. We asked Krista about her volunteer experience, and here is what she had to say:

Why do you volunteer with PCMA?
I have been a member of PCMA since 1999 and believe in the power of education, networking and meeting face to face. My involvement with PCMA has been both personally and professionally rewarding. It is also a benefit to our clients as we stay connected and informed of the ever evolving meetings industry.

What inspires you most about volunteering?
I am inspired by the incredible fellow members who I learn from and partner with as we work to support the programs of our local chapter and the meetings industry.

What would you tell other PCMA members to get them involved?
PCMA is full of professional, knowledgeable and kind people who work together to support one another in our various roles and can help keep our industry moving forward and growing. They also provide excellent support and expertise when we are faced with challenging times (like we are currently experiencing with COVID-19). Our business has grown directly from our connection with PCMA members. I hope others choose to get involved as a PCMA volunteer, it is a benefit to us all.
