Grant Helps Atlantic Canada Chapter Attract Top Speaker

The MPI Atlantic Canada Chapter received an MPI Foundation grant that helped them pay for an event speaker/moderator.

“We held a speed networking event for Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID) where people got five minutes to meet with others in the industry, then they switched off,” says Claudia Habib, immediate past president of the chapter. “We wrapped it up with a lunch where our speaker summed up the best ways to network and make lasting connections.”

“We held a speed networking event for Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID) where people got five minutes to meet with others in the industry, then they switched off.”

She says the grant covered half of the speaker’s fee, and without it the chapter would not have been able to have such a professional speaker.

“She sat in on committee meetings and helped us promote the event with her
videos and social media channels,” Habib says.

She says the MPI Foundation helps small chapters with the bottom line, and helped the Atlantic Canada Chapter produce a well-attended and well-received event.

In 2018, the MPI Foundation awarded 256 total scholarships totaling US$292,238.
