Shirley Tillett Scholarship Fund for Event Professionals


Shirley Tillett, founder of Shirley Tillett and Associates (STA), successfully operated her event planning and training company for over 20 years. She also founded the Event Professionals of Manitoba Association (EPM).

Shirley was instrumental in raising the bar on professionalism in the Event Planning industry in Manitoba. She was a consummate professional, which was evident in every part of her life. Shirley has been teaching Event Planning at MTEC for close to 20 years. She has taught and mentored hundreds of people working in the field of event planning and those wanting to work in the field.

MTEC is honoured that Shirley has created this scholarship and will always be grateful for all the wonderful work she did here and in the community.

The scholarship fund will pay a portion, or all, of the fee for the MTEC 3 Part  Series for Event Coordinators & Planners. (Criteria for scholarship TBD)

Shirley’s family has requested that in lieu of flowers,  donations can be made to the Shirley Tillett Scholarship Fund for Event Professionals. If you would like to make a donation to this fund, please send your donation to the Manitoba Tourism Education Council (MTEC) at 3-75 Scurfield Blvd., Winnipeg, MB R3Y 1P6.
