Top Performing Chapter Award



Call for Champions!


The season for change is important to stay vital - change is essential for groups to thrive.  Have you considered getting more involved, sharing your leadership talents, and gaining more leadership understanding?  Becoming an MPI CHAMPION?  The MPI Heartland Chapter is looking for CHAMPIONS, for the Board of Directors and we can all benefit from your new talents, techniques and energy! 

Your commitment would consist of a 1-year term beginning in July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021.  Most leadership discussions are conducted electronically to gather officers via facetime/zoom meetings.  There are two Board retreats in May and November which require attendance, and shadowing is encouraged prior to the role rotations.  Most duties for the positions can be accomplished at your own pace, and the rewards are high payoff.  Would you consider these few positions still open for availability:

  • Director of Omaha Socials
    • Like to plan events or parties?  This is a perfect fit for you!
  • Director of Communications
    • Are you good with graphics, emails and are creative?  We have an opening for you!

Please respond to the Nominations Committee by January 6, 2020 if you are interested in seeking a position on the MPI Heartland Chapter Board of Directors. 


Season’s Greetings,

Cheryl Math (Immediate Past President) & the MPI Nominations Committee

Get more involved in the chapter by being a board member!


Part of our culture in the Heartland Chapter is to join a committee to get involved and we think your engagement is ready for the next level. We have Champion positions available for immediate active participation from 1-5 hours per month. Are you ready to be a Champion?


  I love to crunch numbers! Give me a goal and I’m all over it. I’ve been told I can sell ice to an Eskimo, and I enjoy raising money for a good cause. I’d love to show you my philanthropic side!  

   I’m a communication and social media guru! Have a question about creating a Facebook ad? I’m your person! Need help creating interesting content for a newsletter, that’s my jam!

   I’ve often been referred to as a social butterfly. Give me an opportunity to plan a fun outing, and you’ll see me shine!

   I am an MPI champion! If you need someone to talk about the benefits of becoming a member or helping to make connections, let me show you my skills!

   Speakers, venues, and agendas, oh my! I’m a master planner who enjoys building educational content and finding the next best venue. Give me a list of speakers to research, and I’ll curl up with it like a good book!
