Education is a priceless gift.

2018 CMP - Annual Education Fund Recipient

The MPI foundation has helped ease the financial burden of preparing for and taking the CMP exam throught the Events Industry Council. My volunteer role with my local MPI chapter exposed me to the MPI foundation and it’s generosity. Thank you! 

My employer pays for my membership and educational meetings but I turned to MPI global for assistance with the certification. MPI has been my second career and family of collegues since I joined in 2014. I also wanted to set a good example as a leader in my MPI Arizona Sunbelt chapter. 

Without a college degree, this certification has given me the professional credibility I have worked almost 18 years to achieve. 

Education is a priceless gift. Thank you to all of those who have donated to help take professional meeting planners to another level of understanding in our industry. What I have learned in this process is going to make my work much better!
