Honorary Achievment Chapter Award





MPI Potomac is an inclusive community of meeting professionals who embrace learning, collaboration and your development.

As MPI's leading chapter in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) we do not take lightly the responsibility to our members, and ourselves, to continue to grow, learn, improve, advocate and act on what is best for our chapter, communities and industry. As part of that mission we will continue to update this page and we would encourage you to also review the resources available on MPI Global: It Starts with Us!


Thank you Visit Raleigh for being MPI Potomac's first DE&I sponsor for April 2022!

Date: December 29,2021


Dear MPI Potomac Members and Supporters,


As we begin a new year still in the throes of a global pandemic, I would like to remind you of the chapter's mission:

MPI Potomac is an inclusive community of meeting professionals who embrace learning, collaboration, and your development.

As meeting professionals and leaders in our industry, it is our duty to continually uncover new ways to share, educate, implement, and improve ourselves and our industry, especially when it comes to diversity, equity and inclusion. The pandemic is an example of one thing we all have in common, though our experiences may be different, we have all been impacted.

In the past two years, the COVID-19 pandemic has increased the intensity of the bright and deeply distressing light on the pervasive inequity and injustice that exists in our society. Together, we need to stand and embrace these challenges. MPI Potomac is fortunate to have you and others who are very well connected in our communities and industry. As a Chapter we are strong, committed, capable, and resilient because of the diversity within our networks: our many races, ethnicities, cultures, faiths, affiliations, gender identities, sexual orientations, ages, abilities, and backgrounds. Our diversification fuels our message and drives learning and action.

The pandemic may have physically kept us apart; however, I am proud of the educational programming, initiatives and networking opportunities the chapter has been able to hold safely in-person and virtually.

We are a community who cares about each other. I encourage you to continue reaching out, lend an ear, and provide a virtual shoulder to those in need. Let’s keep moving forward by showing our collective strength, and remaining allies and advocates for one another.

I wish you peace, health, happiness, and much success.
