MPIKC Annual Professional Education Conference Postponed Until Fall

Dear Colleagues,

In light of the impact on MPI member businesses and the significant non-essential travel policies put in place in recent days, we have made the decision to move the dates of this year’s Professional Education Conference to the fall.

The MPIKC board of directors and all those involved in putting together this conference, believe that PEC should be the catalyst event for our members to begin looking forward and rebuilding again once the worst of COVID-19 is behind us.

We will be working directly with those who are already registered for PEC, to assist in transferring to the new dates.

At this time, we are not providing refunds for the rescheduled dates. However, we encourage transferring your registration to someone in your company who may be interested in attending PEC. If you are unable to attend the new date or unable to transfer your registration, then we will gladly submit refunds after the new date has been set and the inability to attend the new date has been confirmed.

We’re very grateful for the ongoing support of our members, attendees and supplier partners who continue to stand supportive of MPIKC and the industry. Be strong, things will get better. It might be stormy now, but rain doesn’t last forever.
