What Our Awesome Members Say About Us!


“I originally joined MPI mainly as a means to keep up with education for my CMP, but it turned out to offer me so much more! Working as an independent planner and out of a home office, MPI offered me a regular opportunity to connect with my peers and get that interaction that I was missing. And getting involved as a volunteer (committee and ultimately board) turned out to be so incredibly rewarding and beneficial to my growth professionally and personally. MPI is one of the best investments you’ll ever make for yourself and your career!”

Lisa Perry, CMP                                                                   President, Meeting Creations, Inc.

"Of all the professional organizations I have been a part of, I find the MPI North Florida Chapter to be the most engaging organization. It has allowed me the opportunity to not only benefit from the education and networking but to also share it with industry friends and colleagues."

"Being on the Board for MPI North Florida has allowed me to collaborate with men and women in our profession on a regular basis to move the needle for our Chapter. I have grown as an individual, built solid relationships, learned more about MPI and become a better 'me.'"

Edye Wright, CMP

"Being very involved in MPI for over 20 years has been a passion and a pleasure. MPI has provided me with the education and resources to excel in my meeting planning career and I have made many wonderful friends that have also been instrumental in my success. A majority of my client base is built upon the connections I have made through MPI. My return on investment with MPI has been ten-fold in multiple ways and I encourage anyone in the meetings industry to take advantage of these benefits."

HelmsBriscoe, Past President/Founder MPI North Florida

"MPI has helped educate, enlighten and enhance my personal and professional career. I first started really connecting with MPI by attaining my Certified Meeting Professional Designation in 2014. This was not just an educational accreditation but also helped me to build personal and professional friends along the way! MPI is more than just a meeting or luncheon. It's a community of ‘friends’ that work together to help educate and grow business together. I am stronger and more confident because of MPI!"

Rebekah Blakely Lowry, CMP
Casa Marina Hotel, Former Board Member

"Serving on the North Florida MPI Board has given me the opportunity to grow professionally as I have worked with fellow board members to better the chapter by navigating challenges together. It's been incredibly rewarding personally to begin and deepen friendships with individuals who are prioritizing the welfare of others before themselves."
