2023 Canadian Advisory Council

By Michael Pinchera | Jan 17, 2023

"Your 2023 Canadian Advisory Council is a dedicated group of volunteer leaders from across the country and we act as the “voice” of the MPI Canadian community. We act as a conduit between the Canadian chapters and the Global Advisory Committees in providing recommendations and information between the groups. We also provide recommendations and input to the MPI Global Board via our dedicated Board Liaison. The Canadian Advisory Committee’s focus is on membership growth, chapter stability and the implementation of event strategies that consistently deliver education, networking and increased business development opportunities for global sponsorship and MPI Foundation.

"We are working with the chapter leaders across Canada to heighten the awareness of the Canadian MPI community nationally and internationally. If you are interested in learning more about the MPI CAC, please feel free to reach out to us."
