Shelley Pedersen Scholarship


Shelley Pedersen was fiercely passionate about NACE.  She put NACE on the map as an organization that, with a vibrant community, could help professionals grow into their career. She saw potential in individuals who may not have quite seen it in themselves, and she took every opportunity to mentor the next generation. The NACE community will certainly miss her presence, her sass, her knowledge, and her friendship. We plan to celebrate Shelley’s life the way she would have wanted, with her friends during the NACE Experience conference in July.

Shelley was an incredible advocate for continuing education and achieved CPCE Emeritus status in 2015. In honor of Shelley, The Foundation of NACE has established a scholarship program in her name to help future professionals obtain their  Certified Professional in Catering and Events (CPCE)
