Top Performing Chapter Award




President's Report

January 2020


Happy New Year! I hope that all of our members had a wonderful holiday season and that you were able to spend some much deserved time off with family and friends. Last month, the board of directors had our midyear retreat where we focused on strategic plans for 2020. We had a very productive few days at the beautiful Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort Bonnet Creek. I am so proud of the boards and committees accomplishments so far and excited for the incredible plans in store for the year ahead. We kick off 2020 with a two part series in January and February, so we encourage you to register now for both sessions. Our January 14th luncheon will focus on How Planners and Suppliers Can Work Together to Create the Perfect Vision and February 11th will focus on A Vision for the Future Partnerships of Planners and Suppliers. These are topics our members have been asking for so we are really excited to bring these interactive programs to our Chapter. 

In February we will start our CMP Study Group which is open to members and prospective members. If you are interested in learning more about the study group we will hold an informational session following our January luncheon. Thank you to the education committee and all of our facilitators for your commitment to the study group and also to our gracious host, Wounded Warrior project. 

We have updated our 2020 planned event calendar on our website so that you can make plans for your professional education and networking for the year ahead. Our biggest event of the year and one you will not want to miss is Global Meetings Industry Day on April 14th. If you were at last year’s GMID, we celebrated our 25th anniversary on a huge scale at TIAA Bank Field.  While we know it will be hard to top the venue, this year we are focusing on a very big and important topic with some incredible speakers, so stay tuned for an announcement coming soon and more details on Global Meetings Industry Day. Partnership opportunities will be available, so if you are interested in getting involved with GMID please let us know! 

Our goal is to be your professional organization of choice and remain one of the top MPI Chapters in the world so if we can assist you in anyway in making the most of your membership, please reach out to us. We would love to hear how we can best support your goals in the coming year! Wishing you all a great year ahead and look forward to seeing you in 2020!

All my best,

Liz Hogan
