Meetings + Incentive Travel (M+IT) is launching a new Canadian Nationwide Scholarship Program in partnership with the Meeting Professional International Foundation Canada (MPIF). The announcement and cheque presentation were made yesterday at IncentiveWorks 2017.
According to Joe Glionna, president of Newcom Business Media, the owner of Meetings + Incentive Travel magazine and IncentiveWorks, M+IT has pledged $9,000 to fund conference attendance scholarships for Canadian planners across all seven MPI chapters in Canada. From the seven chapter recipients, one Premier Education scholarship will be awarded and presented live at IncentiveWorks 2018.
More information about the program, which will be facilitated by Heather Donnelly, director of business development for Meetings + Incentive Travel, will be announced in the coming months.
