The NSCA Education Foundation will host its first Ignite Fundraiser of 2022 — and the first in-person fundraising event since 2019 — on Wednesday, June 8, at the Brooklyn Bowl Landing Pad in Las Vegas, held in conjunction with InfoComm.
Now in its sixth year, Ignite’s goal is to generate interest in communications technology. It helps local high school and college students connect with manufacturers, dealers and integrators to spark imagination and encourage new career paths in our industry. All funds raised for and during this event will go to Ignite, which was established in 2016 by the NSCA Education Foundation.
The theme of this year’s Ignite fundraiser, “You Can Be the Hero”, is a reminder to Ignite Ambassadors of the industry change they can impart simply by encouraging their organizations to use the remarkable resources available through Ignite.
Brooklyn Bowl doors will open at 6 p.m. on June 8 for the reception, followed by entertainment on the main stage. To attend and receive a drink ticket, attendees will need to show their InfoComm badge or the invitation they received from the NSCA Education Foundation.
“Ignite is a powerful way to cultivate the next generation of skilled professionals by promoting incredible opportunities for young people in our industry,” said Jeff Kindig, Ignite workforce development project leader. “As the industry’s on-ramp to a vast range of great careers, Ignite will help bridge the gap and help companies find ways to deal with workforce challenges.”
