Chapter Charity  

New for 2023, the IAEE Midwestern Chapter is thrilled to announce the launch of our Emerging Leaders Scholarship Fund! The purpose for these scholarships is to identify, grow and develop future leaders for the industry. This scholarship fund will provide opportunities for individuals in college and those in the early stages of their career who have shown interest in learning more. By show people the unique and exciting world of the exhibition and events industry, we look to encourage them to consider the industry as a long-term career. This investment will provide a new wave of talent that will strengthen the industry. So many of us in this room have relied on mentors that showed us what this industry has to offer, and this program is meant to keep that spirit for a whole new generation of industry professionals!

The scholarship fund will rely on donations from chapter members and industry supporters to build these opportunities for young professionals. Look for more information throughout this year at our upcoming chapter events. If you have been personally touched by a mentor throughout your career, we would love to hear your testimonial! Please feel free connect with IAEE Midwestern Chapter Board of Directors with questions or for further information.


We hope that you'll continue to support the wonderful charities
