Summer Sizzles with NYPCMA – Educating, Serving, and Inspiring

by Chris Achacoso, Melbourne Convention Bureau

NYPCMA continues to kick up the heat this summer with several activities in store for all our members, friends and industry partners. Hope you can join us for any (or all) of these activities)

Our Programs and Community Service committees are busy planning and preparing to deliver world-class programs in keeping with this year’s theme of Educate, Serve, Inspire.

2nd Annual Lip Sync Battle – Wed. Aug. 9th

NYPCMA Soup Kitchen Volunteer Event – Mon. Aug 21st

Fall Education Event – Mon. Sept. 11th

Operation BBQ Block Party – Weekend of Sept. 15th


First up is our 2nd Annual Lip Sync Battle on Wed. August 9th. This event promises to be another entertaining and exciting opportunity to let your hair down and let loose. Bonus – no actual singing is required! Don’t forget – sponsorships are available for judge spots and the event itself (in case you have a bit of stage fright). Please contact for more info on sponsorship opportunities.

Mark your calendars for our Fall Education Event on Monday, September 11th, brought to you by our friends at Visit Denver. This program will focus on navigating risks in an ever-changing world. Details forthcoming – watch this space for more details.


NYPCMA is partnering with two long-time partners, Bowery Mission and Operation BBQ Relief, to serve and give back to the community in August and September. Read on below for more info on how you can get involved!

On Monday, August 21st we are partnering with Bowery Mission to serve in their soup kitchen. We’d love 10 volunteers to help serve meals to the homeless that day – hope you can join us. More info and to sign up, click here.

And on the weekend of Sept. 15th we are once again partnering with Operation BBQ and working with them on their block party. Stay tuned for more details…
