Yes! MPI’s membership transfer policy enables members to maintain their MPI relationship no matter where their career pursuits may take them. MPI membership belongs to the individual supplier or planner who originally joins the association, even if the employer paid for it.

In the event a member finds it necessary to terminate his/her membership, it is the right of the member to transfer his/her membership to a qualified employee within the same company.The member may do so providing that a written notice of transfer of membership, signed by the current member, with proper and complete paperwork, is provided to MPI headquarters prior to the expiration date of membership. The notice must include the full name and address of the new member who will assume the current membership through its expiration date. No planner match is required of the supplier. No application fee applies. The individual receiving the transfer must complete an MPI membership application.

Employers that lose membership representation in MPI, due to a member employee leaving the company and taking his/her membership with him/her, may apply for a trial three-month “limited membership” for a new or existing employee of the company to replace a departing MPI member. There is no fee for this trial three-month “limited membership.” Within the three-month “limited membership” period, a new supplier member is required to find a new planner match in order to continue to a full MPI membership with all privileges and benefits.Learn what MPI is doing to help Planners through these tough economic times.
