MPI Testimonials


"As an attendee at last year’s MPISSN- Meeting Planner Boot Camp, I only had a couple events under my belt as a meeting planner’s assistant. The Boot Camp was perfect for my experience level. I am now much more effective and confident and have been able to hold a few smaller event projects on my own. The part I found most valuable was that it wasn’t just a lecture; participants got to see what it was like going on a site tour, by way of a mock- site visit at the training location."

"Joining MPI Sacramento/Sierra Nevada was a personal investment in my professional growth. I received my CMP in 2012 and wanted to make sure that I didn’t just stop there. MPI was a smart choice because it offered a combination of continuing education as well as important networking opportunities to further my career.  I continue to read industry publications and view webinars on important meeting topics but truly it is the face to face interactions I’ve had with my colleagues over these past six years with MPISSN that has helped me prosper and advance in my career."

"Joining MPISSN was a critical choice for me in pursuing my professional career development path. MPISSN’s carefully planned and professionally executed events provide a venue for building relationships, networking with industry professionals and accessing continuing education. There is a real sense of community – sharing knowledge and exchanging best practices. Being actively involved has been incredibly rewarding, both personally and professionally.”

"I have no doubt that I wouldn’t have been able to pass the CIC CMP exam without the help of my MPISSN CMP study group.  I was very fortunate to have a group of sixteen dynamic women share their knowledge and expertise with me.  Our facilitators developed a study plan that gave each of us an opportunity to dive into the material and present it to the group.  This format not only helped with retention of the material, but boosted our speaking and presentation skills as well.   Our study sessions were a complete safe space where we could share best practices, seek advice and learn from each other.

It had been decades for me since studying for an exam like this and having the support of a group that was focused on the same goal, made all the difference in the world.

It is my hope that our chapter can continue to provide this service to our members and grow the number of CMPs in our chapter."
