Chris Yueh, CMP

By: MPI Georgia | Jul 1, 2017

ChrisYuehChris Yueh, CMP
Director of Programs
The Atlanta Chapter of the American Institute of Architects
Member since: 2015



For the last three years, Chris Yueh, CMP, has been relishing his role handling meeting logistics for the AIA Atlanta Chapter’s monthly social and educational meetings, as well as annual signature events. His planning serves 1700 members in Metro Atlanta and North Georgia. Prior to this position, Chris served as the Corporate Volunteer Coordinator for Hands On Atlanta.

Chris was introduced to MPI GA by former Chapter President, Eileen Roehl, CMP. He joined to learn more about the meetings and event industry, and stayed for the networking and educational aspects of membership. Most recently, he served as the Fall Classic Chair in 2015.

In three words, Chris is diligent, outgoing, and loyal. He says the best part of his job is the work itself: “I get jazzed planning and executing events and meetings, with the take-away being a sense of satisfaction seeing our programs accomplished flawlessly.”

Chris is willing to do whatever it takes to make sure his events comes off without a hitch, including giving the shirt off his back – literally. In 2015 the AIA held its national convention here in Atlanta. The opening party was held at the National College Football Hall of Fame. In keeping with the football theme, Chris had jerseys made and asked each of the three presenters to “uniform up” for the event. All they had to do was remember to wear their jersey. When one of the presenters forgot the jersey in the hotel room, he gave her the jersey he was wearing; and continued the event in his chic Hanes “tighty whitey” tee under a borrowed sport coat.

If Chris could create an event for any famous person in the world, he would choose former President Barack Obama.  Creating an event honoring the former president would be a true test of his meeting professional skills: theme, logistics, security, and venue selection. Chris would savor the challenge.

Editor’s Note from Ginger:  When you see Chris, please congratulate him for earning his CMP designation this May. When asked if there was anything else significant happening in his life at the moment, he shared this accomplishment as somewhat of an afterthought. A fourth word to describe Chris would be “humble.”
