Scott & Carol Present IAAPA 2018 - The Al Weber Foundation

IAAPA 2018

The IAAPA Foundation impacts the success of the attractions industry by developing a stronger workforce and building the next generation of industry leaders.This mission cannot complete our mission alone. It takes a village, and in that spirit, we ask for your help in achieving our goal to change the lives of young people.

The IAAPA Foundation’s mission is to inspire life-changing careers in the global attractions industry by cultivating tomorrow’s leaders,” said IAAPA Foundation Chair Jane Cooper during a press conference at IAAPA Attractions Expo. “This is something all of our members can embrace.”

The IAAPA Foundation, formed in 2010, is supported by IAAPA members. This year, the foundation announced partnerships with JA Worldwide and the University of Central Florida Rosen College of Hospitality Management to help nurture and develop young, talented students with interest in joining the attractions industry.

The Rosen College students receiving the new $7,000 scholarships are in the school’s Attractions Management Track; they are: Bridget Frost, Matthew Temmer, and Ashley Kaczor. In addition, the foundation will connect industry executives with Rosen classrooms while also bringing Rosen professors out into the industry to help facilitate enhanced learning opportunities for both sides.
