President's Note

A Note from the President

Learn, Serve, Lead. That’s the goal for the 2017-2018 Board of Directors. Our team is committed to engaging members on a more meaningful level and providing new opportunities for personal and professional growth. Other initiatives include:

·  Our new B2B campaign will highlight the buying power of MPI Orlando and generate measurable ROI for sponsors and members alike.

·  The Membership Committee will hold several focus groups this year to collect data and get a better understanding of your wants and needs.

·  Special Events will focus on creating memorable experiences that showcase the Orlando marketplace and promote connections through networking.

·  Marketing & Communications will launch Monday Minute, a bi-weekly newsletter that gives a short synopsis of what’s happening in MPI Orlando. This engagement piece will also include things such as Member Spotlight and Chapter High Fives.

·  Leadership Development will work in tandem with the MPI chapter at UCF to provide mentorship opportunities for tomorrow’s leaders.

·  Education will take a targeted approach to finding topics and speakers that meet our members’ needs. Offerings will include Coffee Talks, Education Luncheons, and Global Meetings Industry Day. Education will also join forces with After 5 to provide several joint education/networking opportunities.

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event. Thanks for your continued support of MPI Orlando.
