RE: 2020-2021 Board of Directors Application


Each year, the MPI AZ Nominating Committee recommends a slate of candidates to serve on the Chapter Board of Directors. On behalf of this year’s Nominating Committee, please use the attached 2020-21 Board of Directors Application  to submit your name for a position on the board.

The Board of Directors is made up of 13 chapter members: 6 Directors, plus 4 Vice Presidents, the President, President-Elect and Immediate Past President (who comprise the Executive Committee). Active chapter members in good standing are eligible for the nomination and election to any elective office. For Executive Committee positions, it is preferable that the member has previous service on the Board of Directors. 

The Nominating Committee is made up of planners and suppliers who are in good standing and are familiar and active in chapter functions/events.

Serving on the board is not only demanding and challenging, but it is also extremely rewarding. Consider becoming a leader in an award-winning chapter of the largest organization of meeting professionals. This is your chance to contribute to the growth and professionalism of our chapter.

Before committing to a board position, please review the job descriptions available on the MPI AZ website. In addition, consider the following responsibilities of all board members:
