#GivingTuesday is the global movement where millions of people come together to support causes they believe in. This will be an opportunity for YOU, our members, to show support for the IAVM Foundation and the overall well-being of the venue industry we all work in.
We hope that you will consider and reflect on YOUR experiences in the venue industry, and that you will realize the importance of YOUR investment in the IAVM Foundation. For almost 40 years, donations to the Foundation have helped to create amazing programs such as VMS, the IAVM research department (VDS), safety and security initiatives (EMSSI), and scholarship and internship programs for the future of the industry. This is a time to give back, so the IAVM Foundation can continue to develop programs and education that improve every aspect of our venue industry, as well as to continue to provide scholarships.
Your support, in any amount, makes a difference! Please consider giving back on #GivingTuesday and have a magical holiday season.
The Joseph A. Floreano Scholarship + Internship Program recognizes deserving individuals who demonstrate leadership, character, diversity, community involvement and the potential to be future leaders in the venue management industry.
The Joseph A. Floreano Scholarship + Internship Program was established after the untimely passing of Joseph A. Floreano, CFE, a long-time IAVM member, Foundation Trustee and the first and only Honorary Chairman of the Foundation Board of Trustees. Floreano was known for giving selflessly in both time and money to worthy industry causes. His leadership was aspirational and he took great pride in mentoring and supporting the advancement of the venue management industry. Joe Floreano was not only incredibly instrumental in the development of the Foundation’s ‘Build An Amazing Future’ campaign but also became the inspiration as he truly resembled and embodied everything it stands for. The contributions Floreano made to the Foundation are immeasurable and with that we believed that the naming of the scholarship program would be the most appropriate way to honor his legacy that will forever leave a mark on the Foundation. To learn more about the program please visit www.iavm.org/amazingfuture.
