Who’s Who – Member Profile

by Christopher Achacoso – Tourism Australia

You may have noticed an uptick in our social media presence, thanks to the Marketing Committee’s newest member, social media guru Janene Machado. We caught up with her and she shared some of her thoughts on why she chose to be involved with PCMA.

1. What drew you to NYPCMA?

In addition to access to the industry’s most comprehensive educational and professional development resources, I wanted to be part of an influential community of professionals in the industry. PCMA is a growing network of like-minded professionals who share my commitment, integrity, pride, and desire to be held to a higher standard.

2. When it’s all said and done, what are you hoping your NYPCMA legacy will be?

#nypcma – I’m supporting the New York Chapter’s Marketing Committee with their social media needs.I hope to connect and engage existing and potential PCMA members through social media outlets. I want NYPCMA’s social media to be about conversations, community, connecting with the audience and building relationships.

3. Can you give us a few details about who you are when you’re not at work: What are your passions? What do you like to read? Who inspires you and why?

You can find me etching drinkware when I am not sourcing venues or selecting F&B menus. My side hustle is Handmade Glass with Class which is a therapeutic, creative outlet for me. I also love cat naps with my two cats, Gizmo and Rainey.
