Benefits of MPI Membership

Why Join MPI? The Upstate New York Chapter offers an outstanding combination of professional education, peer networking, business opportunities and personal development. As a member of one of MPI’s most active chapters, you’ll benefit from:

  • Education Programs – dynamic, nationally recognized speakers discussing cutting-edge issues and topics affecting our industry.

  • Person-to-person Networking – enticing social events offering showcase opportunities for chapter supplier members and an opportunity to make new connections that can help you personally and professionally.

  • Complimentary CMP Study Groups, study resources, and access to members who have earned their CMP and CMM and can provide individual assistance to you too.

  • Volunteer opportunities on small committees where you can make a difference and shape the future of our chapter. The more you give, the more you will get back. Volunteers spend as little as one hour per month and can even take on a larger commitment as a member of the Board of Directors.


All of these benefits add up to incredible results!

For three years in a row, the MPI Upstate New York took home top honors in the Membership and Chapter Satisfaction Survey. Our small but mighty chapter has been ranked THIRD in the North American Region as well as Globally among all MPI Chapters for overall satisfaction.

Last year's overall satisfaction score climbed 13% from last year, satisfaction with chapter leadership rose 9%, and education content increased a whopping 21%. We also heard your constructive feedback and will work on implementing new programs or opportunities to increase your satisfaction with networking/marketplace opportunities; communications; volunteer opportunities; and program locations. There are several  volunteer opportunities available for you to help us reach these goals!
