Volunteer at MPI

When YOU volunteer, you build relationships that make MPI—and your industry—even stronger.


MPI Volunteers

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. Opportunities are available at the chapter and international levels.
