“The AVIXA Foundation is grateful to Almo Professional A/V for supporting our mission of workforce development, and we congratulate the company on its 10-year anniversary,” said AVIXA Chief Operating Officer and Foundation Executive Director Heidi Voorhees. “The Michael Vergauwen Scholarship remains an important part of the Foundation’s program, helping enable the next generation of professionals to join AV companies around the globe.
