President's Report

September 2019


I hope that you all fared well in Hurricane Dorian and that everyone is getting back to normal here in North Florida. We were so lucky here in Florida but of course the Bahamas has just been devastated.  This week I have been in communication with all of the Florida MPI Chapters and SITE Caribbean and have pledged our support in North Florida to come together in in partnership to support recovery efforts in the Bahamas. More details will be forthcoming but I am thrilled to see this collaboration amongst the organizations and immediate attention to help our industry partners in the Bahamas. 

Just a few weeks ago the Tampa, Orlando, North Florida and South Florida Chapters came together for the 25th anniversary celebration of MPI SES. The TONS committee outdid themselves in producing an excellent conference full of high quality education, unique experiences and fun networking opportunities. A huge thank you to 2019 Conference Chair and MPI North Florida member, Sarah Crocker, for her relentless commitment to making this conference one of the best in our industry. We also had a number of members that were involved with the TONS, Education and Silent Auction Committees and were proud to see many of our members selected as speakers! I could not be more proud of our MPI Florida community for delivering such an incredible conference.  

During SES, we had the opportunity to connect with leadership from all four chapters to discuss increased collaboration amongst the four Florida chapters. We had some great discussions and I am very excited for the future. The collaborative ideas shared will continue to elevate our chapters and create more benefits to our members. You can already sense the collaborative spirt in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian with the efforts being demonstrated so quickly to help our partners in the Bahamas. Events like SES foster this type of collaboration and I could not be more excited about the future of MPI in Florida and the SES Conference. Plans have already started for next year’s conference which will held at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Orlando on August 31- September 2, 2020. Save the date! 

We have two upcoming Educational Luncheons on September 10th and October 8th. We will also be hosting a CMP Study Group Informational Session immediately following the October luncheon so if you would like to learn more about the CMP Study Group please be sure to register to attend that session. We will also host our first Regional After5 networking event in Gainesville on October 10th so keep an eye on our events calendar as we are updating new events regularly and have a great line up to finish out the year strong!
