Happy Holiday’s MPI North Florida Family!  This is my favorite time of year as it is a good time to reflect on the past year of accomplishments and what to strive for in the year ahead.  This certainly has been a year like no other and with that comes its own ups and downs.  I challenge each of you to look at the positives that have come from this year; maybe it was more time with the family, a slower pace of life, communication with old friends, innovative ideas and thinking, etc.  Whatever it may be, this is a time to look back on what you have done.  I want to celebrate you all for making it through this challenging year and hope you can spend time with family whether in person or virtually.

I am so proud of this chapter coming together to find new and creative ways to still engage with our membership.  We have shown during this time why we are a chapter of excellence.  We look adversity in the face and think outside of the box.  MPI North Florida held two of their first hybrid luncheons with success.  We showed meetings can still take place in a safe environment.  We even managed to host a November After 5 event for those wanting to network and fellowship.  We also recently held our first two hybrid luncheons and a retreat.  We had a great time coming together to discuss 2021 opportunities and the financial success of this chapter. I must give a shout out to this board who is working hard to keep this chapter on track. 

This year has been a year of many first and more to come.  It was the first year we held a full day virtual GMID, free education, happy hours, coffee talks, hybrid events, virtual/hybrid retreats and so much more.  I feel we have been able to connect more now than ever.  I cannot say enough on how honored I am to serve as President of such an incredible chapter.  I have watched as best practices are shared, encouragements made, celebrations of certification and membership coming together for one common goal. #wemakeevents

As we close this chapter of 2020, I hope you will look at 2021 as what amazing opportunities there are to come.  Reach out to a member, set a goal, sign up for a certification or plan your resolution.  This has truly been a year of perseverance and strength.  Thank you all for your continued support to MPI North Florida. To persevere is to persist in anything undertaken; maintain a purpose in spite of difficulty, obstacles, or discouragement; continue steadfastly.  We have not only persevered but conquered new challenges while maintaining strong relationships.

We will continue to hold events, deliver first class education and provide networking opportunities for our members.  We have another packed year of events and education in 2021 starting with our hybrid luncheon in January.  We have also secured the Daytona Speedway for the 2021 GMID and it is an event you will not want to miss.  Our education team has been working diligently to give our members what they want.  We value your feedback and strive to continue offering incredible programing.

May you all have a blessed and Happy Holiday!  I look forward to seeing you all in 2021.
