Sarah Vining, IACC Board Associate, Receives Pacesetter Award from Convention Industry Council

The Convention Industry Council presented one of its first-ever Young Professional Pacesetter Awards to Sarah Vining, Board Associate of The International Association of Conference Centers – The Americas.

 
PRLog - Nov. 6, 2012 - According to Karen Kotowski, CEO of Convention Industry Council (http://www.conventionindustry.org/index.aspx), “the Pacesetter Award pays tribute to individuals whose achievements are brought to the CIC as worthy of industry recognition.” This new awards program spearheaded by the CIC honors accomplished industry supporters and emerging leaders in the meetings and events community. “In this inaugural year for the Pacesetter Award” said Kotowski, “Sarah was selected in the Young Professional category and in outward years those honored will be expanded into other categories.”

Vining was nominated by Tom Bolman who retires from The International Association of Conference Centers at the end of this year after 26 years as Executive Vice President of the association. Bolman cited Sarah’s commitment to the industry, her contributions to IACC’s Emerging Trends Committee, her service as marketing co-chair for the IACC annual conference and her major role in the development of IACC’s first Guide to Social Media (http://iacconline.org/content/files/IACC_SocialMediaGuide...). She is the youngest Board Associate to serve with IACC’s Board of Directors.
