About Our Chapter

The MPI Upstate New York Chapter was founded in 2004. Our chapter now serves the Capital Region, North Country, Mohawk Valley, Central NY, the Finger Lakes, Western NY, Southern Tier and as far south as the Mid-Hudson region. We also have members in the Berkshires of Massachusetts and the Green Mountains of Vermont. In the recent merger with MPI’s Eastern Great Lakes Chapter, we have extended our membership west to the Canadian and Pennsylvania borders.

When you join our chapter, you become a part of an organization dedicated to your personal and career success. You’ll connect with the innovative learning, passionate people and big ideas that will empower you to become an agent of change and reinvent the world.

MPI Upstate New York has been recognized internationally for its award-winning newsletter and consistent member growth.
