President's Message


Terrie Rickard
MPI Arizona Sunbelt Chapter President


Terrie RickardHello Members!

Collectively the MPI community brings people together. We set the stage for people to meet face-to-face. We educate the world. This is your value. You make a difference. Because when we meet, WE change the world.

Depending on your role in this community, you or your products are continuously evolving with newly built and renovated hotels, improved technologies to reach attendees and showcase destinations, and discovering better ways to conduct business around the world. MPI members are unique because of our multi-cultural knowledge and inclusiveness. We value and respect our differences. That has been a cornerstone of success for MPI.

The 2022-23 Board of directors will chart a course for your success and enrichment with MPI this year. I have a Vision of Success. Growth is down from a year ago. Our strategy is to increase membership to pre-pandemic levels. I want 50 new members to celebrate MPI’s 50th year!

Networking and education are your key membership values. We will test opportunities to combine relevant educational programming with ample networking time so you all can re-engage meaningfully. We will recruit new talent to our committees to help you develop your leadership skills. And to our supplier partners, NOW is a great time to reinvest in MPI. Take advantage of what MPI has to offer as far as exposure to potential buyers.

I challenge you to choose your path of doing more or something different to enrich your membership and your professional skillset. This is your time to reignite your commitment to MPI because we have a collaboration of board members and dedicated volunteers to help you do just that.

I look forward meeting you and hearing about your MPI journey this year!

Terrie Rickard
