Conference coordinator Jessica Christy from DC Conferences has won the Young Professional Scholarship at last night’s 2014 Meeting and Events Australia (MEA) NSW Industry State Awards, held at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney.
She will now go on to represent NSW in the national awards, which will be held during the 28th annual MEA Annual National Conference in Hamilton Island in May.
The Young Professional Scholarship program is open to employees of MEA members aged 30 years of age or under with less than three years experience in the meetings and events industry. State and territory winners each win a complimentary registration to the MEA conference including airfares and accommodation.
Christy joined the DC Conferences team after she was spotted by the company’s Dianna Crebbin working as a volunteer the Australian College of Nurse Practitioners 2012 National Conference, managed by DC Conferences.
“Jessica has been a stand-out individual ever since we first noticed her as a volunteer back in 2012,” Crebbin said. “She has been a real contributor since joining the DCC team and she is such a positive force in the office. I can see she has a great future ahead of her in the industry.”
