Overview

Did you know that 25% of MPI’s membership are association meeting and event planners? These meeting professionals face specific challenges that corporate meeting and event organizers do not because of their organizations’ structure, not-for-profit status and governance.

They also may need to book citywide events years in advance.  MPI supports its community of 2,000 Association Planners through targeted educational offerings and social activities.
