President’s Message






I hope that everyone had a great holiday weekend celebrating our independence and the 4th of July with friends and family.  Speaking of celebrating, it was so wonderful celebrating “our MPI Family” recently at our Night of Legends 2021 – Mask-querade Ball!  And honoring those who have given so much, especially over the past year, during a fun evening.  I want to thank all of them for everything that they have done, and you can see those Legendary winners below in the newsletter. 

And for those of you are new, July marks the beginning of our MPI year.  So, I want to thank once again all the members who just recently finished their terms serving all of us on our chapter’s Board of Directors.  I also want to say that I’m looking forward to another amazing year with this year’s Board and all we will accomplish together. 

So, I have a question to all of our members, Are you Legendary?  This chapters success and accomplishments are due to everyone working together.  Every one of you who takes the time to commit to our industry, our association, and our chapter. 

I would like to challenge each one of you to get more involved with the chapter and get the most out of your membership.  Attend events again in person.  Come network with your fellow members and event professionals.  Be a part of the learning experience with our upcoming education sessions.  Make a commitment and join our winning team and be a part of a committee.  There are many to choose from so there is a perfect fit for you.     

Our next time together will be at the amazing Don CeSar Hotel for our MPI After 5 networking event.  This is a perfect time to come see the fully renovated hotel, as well as network with your peers.  Also, a great time to invest in yourself and join a committee. 

Until then, be well and stay safe.  And remember, we are Stronger Together!
