"I love having a professional avenue to connect with and learn from Event Planners and Hospitality Sales professionals."
-Stephanie Lundeen, Hilton Garden Inn Minneapolis Downtown

"I feel a sense of community, enjoy seeing seasoned veterans and people new to the industry. It's a place where I feel comfortable doing things that are uncomfortable. I never imagined that I would be on the Board of Directors learning budgets, P & L's, and being accountable to the financial health of our chapter. I am learning a new skill set, which makes me a better team member for my day job."
-Betsy Walsh, Marriott Minneapolis West and Courtyard West

"I love MPI Minnesota because all of the great connections I've made!"
-Nicole Coon, Housing First Minnesota

"MPI Minnesota offers organic networking opportunities and allows you to be a part of a great community of professionals."
-Jenny Ng, National Co-Op Grocers

"I love being with like-minded people in the events industry!  We all get it!"
-Amy Beilke, Carrousel Incentives

"The free on demand webinars are a huge added value to my MPI membership! The live monthly meetings are fantastic for developing local relationships, but the on demand webinars allow me to brush up on topics when it’s relevant to what I’m doing at that moment. For example, I was tasked with planning an incentive trip and it’s been a couple years since our last one, so I browsed mpi.org to see what resources were out there. I found an on demand webinar featuring an industry pro that shared how he conducts sites visits and he even shared his inspection checklist. I sent him a thank you email and he followed up letting me know that he would be happy to be a resource if I ran into any questions throughout my planning experience with the hotel." 
-Alyssa Frank, Northwestern Mutual

"MPI Minnesota is great because the people are great!"
-Jerry Terp, Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel

"Our chapter offers great education and networking opportunities within them."
-Amanda Sullivan, IntrinXec Management

"Becoming a member of MPI Minnesota is and will remain to be one of the most important career decisions I have made.  You get in what you put out and joining MPI, volunteering and then later to be on the board has helped me to grow my network but more importantly it helped me grow, ME!"
-Elizabeth Sherry, Minnesota Chamber of Commerce
