President's Message


Melanie Volkers, CHSE, CHDM
MPI Arizona Sunbelt Chapter President


Melanie Volkers

Hello Arizona Sunbelt Chapter!

I am truly honored to be president of this award-winning chapter, and I want to thank you for placing your trust in me.   Although nobody knows what this year has in store for us, I am excited to start this journey with all of you and see where it takes us.  We have an incredibly talented board of directors, and we are excited for both the challenges and opportunities that lie before us.  We are strong and resilient, and we will rise to overcome these challenges.

We know that business as usual is not the case this year, and that is ok.  We are using this as an opportunity to reevaluate our program of work so that we can offer the best of virtual and live events as we move forward.  We will make plans, we will reevaluate those plans, we may postpone even or cancel some plans, and that is ok. 

Looking forward, as we try to navigate our way through the unknown, one thing is clear.   We need our MPI community – our MPI Family - now more than ever.   We need to be connected to our industry and to each other. If you have been thinking about getting more involved, now is the time to join us and grow your network and your community. 

If you have any suggestions or feedback for the board this year, please contact me directly by phone or email.   You have my word that we are here for you, we will listen to you, and we are here to support you. 

Until we meet again,
