Overall Excellence Chapter Award



Scholarships & Awards

In the 2019/2020 term, MPI New Jersey experienced the great loss of two of our legacy members and Past Presidents.  Pamela James, CMP served as Chapter President in 2004/2005 and Julia Ramos, CMP in 2013/2014.  Those that knew either Pam or Julia know that they were champions of MPI.  They were always there to make you feel welcome, encourage you to get involved and learn thru our educational programs, all in order to help each of us be the best in our professional lives. 

MPI New Jersey Chapter has established a scholarship program in their honor to provide educational opportunities to our members and encourage involvement in Meeting Professionals International.
