2018-2019 MPI Arizona Sunbelt Chapter President
Thank You Arizona Sunbelt Chapter members for giving me the great honor and opportunity to serve as your 2018-19 MPI AZ Chapter President. Along with our new Board of Directors (BOD) and Leadership Teams, we've been working hard to prepare for the year ahead. Together we plan achieve our chapter goals and exceed them!
I've asked all of our Leadership Teams to think out of the box, be open to creative change, redesign many chapter programs and continue to move MPI AZ into the future while maintaining our chapter culture.
Our education teams have already started to plan programs that include industry hot topics. Risk management, event crises & prevention, and emergency responsiveness are some of our areas of focus. We are also going back to the basics of event planning during our summer EduCon program. Look for these and many other EIC-approved continuing education programs.
In addition, the Finance teams have listened to you, our industry partners, how we can improve your ROI. We'll be rolling out new investment opportunities, so you can showcase your brand here in Arizona, and to a broader audience through the newly designed global and chapter websites which are set to launch later this year. Our chapter, along with MPI global, is working hard to provide you, our sponsors, with countless investment opportunities going forward to maximize your ROI.
I'm also excited to share that this May of 2019, MPI Arizona Sunbelt Chapter will be celebrating 40 years as a chapter. What an amazing milestone! Look forward to see how we'll be celebrating our 40thyear of MPI AZ.
These are just a few examples of new things to come. However, we cannot forget about the networking events that make our chapter stand out. We'll be bringing back our Holiday Party, Spring Fundraiser and the Annual Golf Tournament where we partner with our friends at HSMAI.
We are coming off an incredible year where we were honored with a MPI Global Chapter Merit Award for Volunteer Engagement. In order to win again, WE NEED YOU! If you are a member who is not yet participating on a committee, I personally invite you to join and get involved. We need your expertise, vision and professional dedication to continue to make MPI AZ an award-winning chapter.
Working together as a team -- membership, volunteers, leadership and myself -- will make MPI AZ a huge success!
