"Through the many years of my involvement in the industry, the Arizona Sunbelt Chapter of MPI has had an enormous positive effect on my business, my community, and just as importantly, on me personally. Through our chapter, I have learned and cultivated skills in leadership, strategic planning, group dynamics, communication and marketing. All of these skills have helped our chapter and helped my career as well.

Donating these funds to help cultivate other members' involvement in our chapter is a joy. It is my hope that the recipients of these awards will continue to serve our chapter and gain as much from their involvement and relationships as I have. After all, it's important for us all to pay it forward."
