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.

"Our members represent the greatest assets of our MPI Upstate New York chapter. These individuals have pivoted gracefully to meet the challenges of the past several months and will continue to do so in the coming year. Our chapter's focus will be on compassion, wellness, education and connection. These four ideals will guide the decisions of our Board of Directors as we support the recovery of our meeting planning community.”
