President's Message

President Elect - Stephanie Sadri, CMP
Immediate Past President - Dana Rains, CMP
Vice President of Communication - Ashley Davis, CMP
Vice President of Education - Rebecca Sosa

Vice President of Membership - Nikki Bibbero, CMP, HMCC

Director of Fundraising - Alex Doyle, CMP
Director of Special Events - Jennefer Weeks
Director of Strategic Alliance - Brian-Douglas Stanwood
Director of Member Care - Jennifer Svitak, CMP, CAP, OM
Director of Recruitment - Brett Ranieri 

The outgoing and incoming Boards have been working together closely to ensure a smooth transition into the new year. 

I would also like to thank Heather Basch, Kevin Hedican, Karoline Corbett and Joyce Reilly for their dedicated service to the Chapter. Joyce completes her time on the Board as Immediate Past President and we are beyond grateful for her leadership. We look forward to all their continued support and involvement with MPIRMC for years to come. 


As the 2019/2020 year comes to a close for MPIRMC, I would like to provide some highlights of the year for our members: 

Education - MPIRMC provided members and guests seven educational opportunities including our first ever Members Choice program and a bonus virtual program in May. Due to the pandemic, we hosted our first and second ever virtual educational events with strong attendance. 

Membership - Our membership continues to hover at 400 members. MPI Global continues to provide membership assistance through the MPI Foundation to members in need of support during the coronavirus pandemic. 

Finance - While the pandemic greatly affected the last three months of our year, the chapter remains financially stable and the 2020/2021 budget was created to maintain this stability. We are grateful to our many sponsors and partners for their support throughout the year. 

Volunteers - We are grateful for each and every volunteer who has served as a table host, a greeter at an event, a committee chair, and in so many other capacities. MPIRMC relies on member volunteers to keep our chapter moving forward. In 2019/2020, we had an average of 75 volunteers per month. 

I am pleased to share that the chapter is in a strong position moving into the 2020/2021 year. The incoming Board of Directors has prepared a calendar of events and corresponding budget with much as much flexibility as possible as we continue to come through the pandemic and adjust as an industry to the “new now”, which evolves on a daily, weekly & monthly basis.  

Finally, and most importantly, THANK YOU to each of our members - you are the reason the Board of Directors, our committees and volunteers work so hard to bring the educational programs, networking events and fundraisers to fruition and we very truly appreciate each and every one of you. 

It has been an honor and privilege to lead MPIRMC this year and I look forward to the chapter’s continued success in 2020/2021 and beyond. 

In Service, 

Dana Rains, CMP
MPIRMC 2019/2020 President
