Martin is now a business partner of the Professional Conference Organisers Association (PCOA). The PCOA is a respected Professional Conference Organisers Association with industry connections across the globe.
Eligible students completing their first period of study in Martin’s Diploma of Events course will be given access to membership. Membership with PCOA brings with it a wealth of opportunities for students, including professional development webinars and internships – with the chance to attend the Annual PCOA Conference & Exhibition.
Martin student Michelle Joseph attended the 2015 conference with facilitator Milyn Lo, and was overwhelmed by the support and encouragement she received. “When I explained that I was attending as part of a scholarship, everyone was very congratulatory –” says Michelle, “all willing to offer advice, information about the industry, and potential leads that might be helpful to me.
The partnership presents a great opportunity for Martin and for the students who will gain invaluable work experience and build their CV up to impress. “Anyone who is interested in pursuing a career in the industry will benefit from PCOA membership,” says Michelle.
