President's Message


Hello MPIRMC Family,

Here we are familia… the start of a new year! United in our efforts to create meaningful connections, impact, and growth. I want to thank each of YOU for investing in our chapter, but more importantly investing in yourself. I’m excited and honored to share this year with you! Also thank you to the 22/23 Board of Director’s for your leadership this past year. You’ve reminded us of who MPIRMC is in the industry and the meaningful impact we want to make, driven by commitment to excellence, progress, and the well-being of our members.  

At the 2023 MPIRMC Annual Gala, I spoke about vulnerability. Vulnerability is the quality or state of being exposed to the possibility of being physically or emotionally wounded. Open to attack or damage. This year I’m encouraging vulnerability in the spirit of growth, because I believe being vulnerable is what brings us closer together. And isn’t that why we’re all here? To connect, build relationships, learn from one another, and collaborate on initiatives that strengthen our industry, professional careers, and personal lives.

Brene Brown, researcher and author, once said, “Vulnerability is not weakness. And that myth is profoundly dangerous…Vulnerability is the birthplace of connection and the path to the feeling of worthiness. If it doesn’t feel vulnerable, the sharing is probably not constructive.” 

In our journey toward success, it is natural to focus on our strengths, accomplishments, and the strides we’ve taken. These achievements have indeed defined us and propelled us to where we are today. However, it is equally important, if not more so, to recognize and embrace our vulnerabilities.

As an association, our strength lies in our diversity – diverse talents, experiences, and perspectives that come together to form a formidable whole. Yet, within this tapestry of diversity, we must also acknowledge that everyone brings their own vulnerabilities. It is our responsibility to create an environment where these vulnerabilities are not feared but celebrated.

This year will focus on you, on us, and on growing, learning, and connecting (together), because none of this would be possible if it wasn’t for all of us deciding to be a part of the MPIRMC family in the first place. 

Thank you for your time and dedication to our shared mission. Here’s to a future defined by strength, growth, and the courage to be vulnerable.
