Global Volunteer Center

MPI relies on its volunteers in support of achieving its strategic objectives and mission. We rely on our volunteers’ knowledge, skill and time and in return our volunteers learn, grow, meet new people and expand their network. Numerous opportunities are available at the chapter and international levels. So join us now and build those relationships within our community while helping us make this industry stronger.

MPI Community Advisory Boards

These boards reflect the needs and interests of the industry's largest communities of meeting and event professionals. Community Advisory Board members recommend and create education, resources and engagement strategies to empower and engage members of their community segment at the global and local chapter level. This is a great opportunity for people who are interested in gaining experience in community moderation and/or content creation and would like to position themselves as thought leaders. Experience as a chapter leader is a plus, but not required.

“Make volunteering a growth opportunity. Try new things, embrace being uncomfortable, and push yourself. Being part of something bigger - something you believe in - is worth prioritizing. I believe in MPI, and I believe that you, our members, are our organization's greatest asset."
