President's Message



JoEllen Graber
President, MPI-Wisconsin


Welcome to MPI-Wisconsin!   I am so glad you have found your way to our chapter’s website. I encourage you to explore and learn more about us!

Our chapter has a rich history in Meeting Professionals International as four of our own Wisconsin Chapter members were founding members of MPI Global.  We are also proud to be recognized as a Top Achieving chapter by MPI Global.   Our chapter members are recognized leaders in our industry and we continue to strive for better education, innovation and leadership. 

The education we offer  at nearly every chapter event spans a broad base of topics to help you further your career, presented by some of the best experts in the industry. As a EIC Preferred Provider, our sessions are certified by the Events Industry Council for Continuing Education credit.

I encourage you to click on the “Events” tab to check out our future schedule, and attend every event possible…even if that means just those in your area. We value your time, and know that your time will have value when you attend any of our upcoming events.

Networking opportunities abound and provide priceless one-on-one connections for professional and business development.  Our Chapter is one of the top among all MPI Chapters in volunteer engagement. Our members know that time invested in MPI-Wisconsin is time well spent. 

Much of networking is not “who you know” but “who knows you” and MPI-Wisconsin offers many ways to gain professional  exposure.  Our Strategic Alliance partnerships, event sponsorships, in-kind donations, and other opportunities support our goals and provide great value in reaching our enthusiastic membership.   Member support is crucial to our mission of connecting industry professionals to learn, build relationships, and enhance business opportunities. 
This organization is the world’s largest community of event planning professionals and will change the trajectory of your career.  I am grateful proof of that!

As president of this awe-inspiring group, I recognize that we are all leaders.  I am simply here to guide the chapter through our next successful year, I’m excited and honored to do so.  I look forward to welcoming you to our MPI family!

Wishing you all a great MPI year!

JoEllen Graber
MPI-WI Chapter President
