I am so honored to win the scholarship to WEC 2020. I am really excited to meet individuals in our industry from around the world and grow as an individual and professionally via their educational sessions. This will be my 1st time at the Conference. As a small business I would have never had this opportunity to attend and I am grateful for the scholarship. I am PROUD to be a member of MPI Middle PA Chapter and can not wait to share my experience with the group!! Thank you MPI Middle PA for your dedication to your members!

MPI Middle PA has done a great job of building its credibility over the past eleven years in our region as the “go to” organization for professionals in the meetings and events industry.  MPIMP’s reputation of providing quality educational events, great opportunities for networking and a friendly approach to its members and guests has been the driving force to its continued growth and success.  Makes me proud to be a member of MPI Middle PA since its inception!

It’s been almost 5 years since I joined MPI. My only regret is that I wish I would have joined sooner. I was a communications major in college when I accepted a marketing internship with the local chamber of commerce. Little did I know my marketing internship would evolve into a meetings and events internship position. When my internship came to an end, my supervisor asked me what my favorite lesson I learned during my experience was. It was then when I said; I had learned, I wanted her job planning meetings and events. At that time, I wish I had known about MPI’s student membership opportunities. Since becoming an active MPI member, I’ve earned my CMP with help from MPI’s scholarship program, expanded my network, and learned new techniques to create memorable experiences for attendees at the events I help coordinate.

- Lindsey Killian, MBA, CMP, Director of Education, Pennsylvania Academy of Family Physicians & Foundation

I must admit that I hesitated to join MPI as I was already a member of another organization and I didn’t think that I would get much out of my membership. The first meeting I attended proved me wrong. The MPI educational sessions are always current and relevant and the speakers are right on point. I’ve often thought that after almost 40 years as a meeting planner that there couldn’t possibly be more to learn. But the times they are a changing and if we don’t change with them we get left behind. I want to give my members the best experience at our meetings and belonging to MPIMP is helping me do that. After all, how can I encourage membership in our association if I don’t support mine?

- Ilene K Sauertieg, Director of Education, PA Optometric Association





MPIMP is my go-to resource as a young event professional still learning the ins and outs of the industry. Whether I need information on new venues, attendee engagement, or the CMP certification, MPIMP has provided invaluable connections for me as I navigate the event planning world! Everyone is so warm and welcoming- it’s great to have such an active and reliable chapter close to where I work and live. Thank you MPIMP for all that you do!

- Andrea Stroble, Director, Education & Events, Pennsylvania Association of Mutual Insurance Companies




MPIMP is all about community for me – it’s where I go to connect with peers, make new friends, compare notes, ask questions and discover. Every meeting is filled with ‘Aha!’ moments, laughter and so much energy.

- Stacey Thomas, Program Manager, Pennsylvania Bar Institute
