MPI CAC Coronavirus Statement

Updated March 19, 2020

As the industry continues to monitor and adjust to COVID-19, we would like to ensure you that MPI Chicago Area Chapter is doing the same. It is important we come together as a community to support each other, focus on our industry, our members and the health and safety of both.

With the recent developments of COVID-19 and the CDC’s recommendations for events, we have made the incredibly hard decision to cancel Industry Xchange on April 14. As we continue to monitor the situation we will keep you informed of any changes.

We encourage you to utilize the resources available to our industry for real-time updates, mitigation techniques, and best practices.
