President's Message

Happy November! I am very thankful for all our amazing members, guests of chapter events, and incredibly talented and hardworking board members that make our chapters one of the best MPI chapters! We were very excited to be awarded Chapter of Excellence by MPI Global for the 2022-2023 term during the awards call on October 25th. This is a huge accomplishment and MPI North Florida is the sixth time only MPI Chapter to achieve this incredible milestone. I am very proud of our chapter and want to congratulate our board of directors for helping work towards achieving this success so that we can continue to provide fantastic educational programming and networking for our members.

 We also had a great virtual coffee talk where we had members and guests from all the Florida Chapters join us for a fun hour of event scary stories and Halloween trivia! Special thank you to David Hanscom, President Elect from our chapter for facilitating that event!

 There is still time to register for the November Educational Luncheon that will take place Tuesday, November 14th from 11AM-1PM at the Marriott Jacksonville! Vera Jones, Motivational Speaker, Author, Conflict & Communication Coach will be presenting an exciting, interactive session to help participants explore and develop their professional capacities to lead, train, and relate with greater EMPATHY. The session is designed to improve communication effectiveness by learning to engage in more empathic relational strategies resulting in greater leadership clarity, confidence, and collaboration, identify and explore the “6-S” core motivators that activate greater individual and team engagement and productivity, help participants increase their self-awareness by assessing what personally motivates them to do their best work, and ignite greater motivation and significance in leadership, especially in the face of challenge or adversity which is when true, empathic leadership is needed most. You won’t want to miss this last educational event of the year, so make sure toregister!

We are also excited to be partnering with Ponte Vedra Inn & Club on the December Holiday Party! Mark your calendars for Tuesday, December 12th from 4:30PM-7PM for a fun evening of drinks, dinner, networking, and celebrating the holidays. Registration is now open, so join us for an evening full of holiday cheer!

All My Best,
Katie Risher, CMP
MPI North Florida Chapter President
