Overall Excellence Chapter Award



MPI New England 2025 Board Slate

One of the most crucial resources ensuring our chapter’s success is the volunteer leadership on the Board of Directors. To this end, the MPI New England Nominations Committee has reviewed the leadership applications received in response to the 2025 Call for Nominations/Applications. After extensive consideration, we are pleased to present the current slate of candidates selected by MPI New England's Chapter Slate Committee for the 2025 Board of Directors.

This slate of officers has been prepared by the Nominations Committee and is now being presented to the membership. If uncontested, the slate will be approved unanimously. Members have the opportunity to challenge the proposed candidates within the next 30 days. If you wish to oppose any of the selected candidates, please send a detailed explanation to Marjie Lane, Immediate Past President at president@mpine.org. This must be received by 5 pm ET on Wednesday, July 31, 2024.

If no petitions are received, the candidates listed will assume their positions on January 1, 2025.

I would like to express my gratitude to the members of the Chapter Nominations Committee for their dedication and hard work in producing this slate.
