PCMA stands for Professional Conventions Management Association, an international association of professional and aspiring event planners. Thompson Rivers University has a PCMA club filled with students that are dedicated to enriching the lives of their peers through fantastic events on and off campus.

PCMA-TRU strives to give real life, practical experience for students across all disciplines at Thompson Rivers University. We work hard to provide a safe learning environment focused on developing individual and teamwork based skills. We aim for our members to have a well balanced background in management, logistics, leadership, design, and partnership. 

PCMA-TRU is aiming to be a leading student club for event planning on the Thompson Rivers University campus. We would like to be the university and the community’s go-to-source for volunteers and assistance with a large range of events. From small scale meetings, to multi-day conferences, to celebration events, and festivals, PCMA-TRU hopes to be a welcoming, strong pillar for years to come.

PCMA-TRU is open to all students, alumni, and community members who are interested in providing real life experiences through planning events, conferences, fundraisers and much more! While gaining great content for one’s resume, each member will also have the opportunity to network with industry leaders, make new friends, try new things, and most importantly, have fun!

This website will be helpful to students and faculty at TRU that want to learn more about the PCMA-TRU club or that want to be in-the-know on upcoming events. This is also a space for our members to gain a sense of community and an understanding of what PCMA-TRU is all about.
