The New England Chapter of Meeting Professionals International honors outstanding members with Awards each year.

We strongly encourage all of our members to consider nominating themselves or a fellow chapter member for consideration. The Nomination Form will open each Spring.

The following categories are eligible for nominations:

The Kathy Keegan-Cummings Professional Development Scholarship Award

This scholarship award is presented annually to an MPI member from the New England Chapter to provide a full-year of complimentary registration to all monthly educational chapter events excluding the Educational Institute. The candidate must present a rationale for receiving this scholarship, including why he/she/they would like to participate in Chapter educational events throughout the year, how this participation will benefit the candidate’s future professional goals, and how his/her/their participation will benefit the New England Chapter of MPI.

Sam Dame Chapter Leader of the Year

This award is intended to recognize the local commitment of a chapter member in influencing the life of the Chapter. The award is based upon the ability of the recipient to motivate others, impact chapter functions, provide a sense of purpose in the community, and act as a catalyst to cause exceptional results that benefit the local chapter and meetings industry.

Meeting Professional of the Year Planner/Supplier

These awards (one for Planner and one for Supplier) are presented annually to 2 members of MPI in recognition of outstanding industry contributions, leadership, and professionalism.  The awards are based on chapter participation, donation of time and talents, and services to members of the community, community service outside of the industry, and mentorship of newer members of the chapter. The awards recognize a career of involvement, commitment, and achievement.


Dayna Brunelli Tomorrow’s Leader Award

This award is presented annually to an MPI member who has made new contributions to the association at the chapter level. The candidate must be a current member of MPI in good standing. The candidate must be employed as a full time planner or supplier. This award recognizes a new and growing career in the events industry with demonstration of  involvement, commitment and achievement on a chapter level. This award is named in honor of an incredible young member of MPI New England, gone from us too soon but remembered always for her contributions to the chapter.
