MPI's Georgia Chapter

I am over the moon excited to serve you and our community this year.  What an honor to stand alongside so many amazing, talented and humble members of our MPI Georgia Hospitality Family.  My goal this year as I said on stage at our Annual Gala is to instill that fire in you that I have in me for our Industry and Chapter.   I mean it when I say I want to get you INSPIRED to serve and take an active role in this Chapter; and what better way to get the best ROI than to get involved!  I know there’s a little voice inside of you all – you want to do it, you’re secretly excited about it – but you’re afraid… “do I have the time; do I have the energy; do I have what it takes” – the answer is absolutely, 100% YES!  You do! 
If I do, you certainly do

In addition to the countless relationships and partnerships you will make through this organization; we promise you actionable education, thought leadership, industry advocacy, equity, diversity and inclusion and career and personal growth and advancement.  Our Chapter and Board are here and committed to serving you and your needs – to help you become the industry leader that you envision – to help fulfill your passion and purpose.  We are ready to help push you past boundaries, think outside the box and maybe push you a tiny bit outside your comfort zone… we’ve all heard that life begins at the end of your comfort zone… it’s also where the magic happens.  

Our motto at MPI Global is, “When we meet, we can think in ways previously unthought.  When we meet, we break through barriers that kept us apart.  When we meet, we change the world”.  Coming together is such a powerful force and I am so passionate about bringing all of you together this year.  Cheers to a great year of growth together!  I am humbled and honored to be of service to you!     

Our Vision: MPI will lead and empower the meeting and event community to change the world.

Our Mission: MPI will connect the global meeting and event community to learn, innovate, collaborate and advocate.

Our Commitment to Diversity: MPI’s aim is to embrace and foster an inclusive business climate of respect for all peoples regardless of national origin, race, religion, sex, gender identity, gender expression, age, color, sexual orientation or disability

I look forward to serving alongside you!
