MPI Virginia Board of Directors

Since 1986, the Virginia Chapter of Meeting Professionals International has counted on its members to step forward and fill leadership roles. We are proud of our leadership team and thank them for their time and expertise. They work hard to provide current industry news, quality programs and networking sessions, a diversity of meeting sites, membership information and benefits, as well as keep an eye toward the future. It is thanks to our leaders that MPI Virginia has been twice recognized as MPI's Chapter of the Year.
