mag10

The Center for Growing Talent by PMA, formerly known as the PMA Foundation for Industry Talent, is celebrating its milestone 10th anniversary this year. In addition to launching a new name, website and logo, the Center for Growing Talent by PMA has also launched a social media campaign, called the “10 for Talent” challenge, to draw more attention to its revamped brand, and collect donations to help support its mission.

“On the occasion of this group’s 10th anniversary, we are inviting industry members to demonstrate their energy and commitment to talent, both for our industry and for their companies,” said PMA President Cathy Burns. “Our ’10 for Talent’ challenge is a fun and social media-oriented fundraising effort that calls on 10,000 industry members to give $10 each to the Center for Growing Talent by PMA, to fun and accelerate our important work.”

Participants can simply contribute $10 online at www.GrowingTalentbypma.org/give10 or text 10forTalent to 41444. The organization is encouraging people to have fun with the challenge by sporting some orange (the Center for Growing Talent by PMA’s official color) and posting photos to your social media channels, showing that you participated. Photos can be shared on Facebook and LinkedIn; and submitted at www.GrowingTalentbypma.org/10-for-talent for a chance to win a free registration to one of its programs, including PMA Fresh Summit and the Emerging Leaders Program. You can also tweet using the hashtag #10forTalent.
