IABC Heritage Region Conference scholarships offer chapter leaders and members-at-large who have strong volunteering experience a great opportunity to explore the region's signature professional development and networking event. After a careful application vetting process, evaluators chose this year’s winners: Poonam Sharma, a proposal writer for ASSYST and VP of social media for the DC Metro Chapter, and KayAnn Taylor Rutter, AVP of marketing for United Way of Central Ohio and a member of the Greater Cincinnati chapter.
