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.

Message from the Chapter President


WOW, so many amazing things have happened in Kansas City since our last newsletter!  The holidays  season, we transitioned into a new decade, and the CHIEFS WON THE SUPERBOWL!  Being a huge fan of the Chiefs I can’t imagine a more exciting time to be in Kansas City.

We have exciting things happening in the Kansas City area for our industry and within our chapter.  We have completed four amazing education events and two fantastic special events.  Make sure your calendars are marked and you are registered for the upcoming Professional Education Conference being hosted at the new? Loews in April and offering up to 7 credit hours!    We also have our Annual HamBingo at Hamburger Mary’s in May and the Annual Auction and Gala hosted at Children’s Mercy Park and Sporting Kansas City.  What a great way to wrap up our fiscal year.

You may have or will soon be receiving a survey from MPI Global labeled “Once-Annual MPI Member Survey Invitation”, please take the time to fill out this survey as we utilize each of these surveys to better our chapter for the following year. 

Want to get more involved?  We have numerous spots for all different levels of commitment within the chapter.  Please reach out to myself or anyone on the board and let us know your interests. We would love to get you connected.

I look forward to seeing you at PEC!
