President's Message

February 2020



Hello Lovely Members,

Can you feel the love in the air… puppy love that is? This past Saturday we hosted our 3rd Annual Yappy Hour benefiting the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. Thank you to all our amazing sponsors that support this awesome charity and us, as well as all those that came out for the event even though the weather was against us. We were able to raise over $2,000 for the Humane Society. Our Special Programs committee has been working hard putting on some great events including Yappy Hour and our Gasparilla themed After 5. Coming up this month we have an After 5 at Armature Works and our annual Game Night at Splitsville in March.

Don’t forget to sign up for our upcoming education program on February 12th with Leadership Pathway’s Velma Knowles on Starlite Cruises in Clearwater. This topic, “Don’t Rock the Boat: Communication & Contract Negotiation”, came directly from feedback we received at the Planner Appreciation Breakfast and it is perfect for suppliers & planners.

This past month the nominations committee worked with Office of the President to put together the 2020-2021 Board of Directors slate.

If you don’t know the nominations committee is comprised of some MPI Tampa Bay all-stars including multiple past presidents and board members. Please make sure you review the proposed slate.

Lastly keep your eye out for the Global Membership Survey that will be going out shortly. As a reminder, participation in this survey is very important to our chapter as we receive metric points from Global that can be used to benefit our membership. This survey also contributes to our awards we receive including Top Performing Chapter, Leadership and Volunteer Engagement.

Much love,

Nevar Campbell, CMP
