There's No Better Time Than the Present

The new MPIOC Board of Directors will be meeting in a few weeks at the Great Wolf Lodge in Garden Grove for our annual retreat.  Things are all in place with a few exceptions…we need you! We have a couple open board positions and a number of committee chairs that need to be filled to help us continue to grow in the upcoming year.

And don’t worry, we have needs of all sizes and commitments! If you only have an hour a month? We can work with that J Any time given towards our chapter considers you a volunteer and those are all credit hours you can use when applying for or renewing your CMP.

And, by working with other chapter members on projects it’s a great way to move past the surface pleasantries of seeing someone once in a while at an event and really dive into the heart of the team that makes MPI so special.

Need another reason to get involved? We have plenty…want to try something new in the industry and gain hands on experience with various areas of event planning? MPIOC has volunteer opportunities that cover an array of marketable skills: Sales, branding, event planning, member outreach, sponsorship, social media, finance…you can build experience in any of these areas or more.

If you’re interested in learning about opportunities within MPIOC leadership, contact Bruno Duarte or anyone on the board and we’ll be glad to help you find the perfect spot to share your talents and help the chapter at the same time.

Lastly, here’s a few examples of roles we need to fill in our Finance team alone. Yes, you work with numbers and spreadsheets, but Finance also plans our special events that help fund the Chapter.


  1. Director of Supplier Partnerships
  2. Event Title Sponsor Chair
  3. Extra Opportunity Chair
  4. Table Sponsor Chair
  5. Committee Chair for 2022 October Holiday Event
  6. Spring Fundraising 2023 Chair
  7. Awards & Installation 2023 Chair
  8. Virtual Education Chair (3 Events, 1-3 members Dec 2022, February & March 2023)
