MPIKC Board Member Spotlight – October

This month we are shining the spotlight on Diana Midyett – Director Strategic Alliance. Diana is currently owner/principal of Diana Midyett Meeting and Event Planning, LLC.

About Diana in 140 characters:

Very active in HSMA and MPI when she worked at the Corpus Christi CVB. She kept raising her hand to say “let me plan that!” After moving to St. Joseph she was the DOS at the St. Joseph CVB until deciding to open a restaurant and catering company. The opportunity came to be a meeting & trade show planner for Teva and Bayer Animal Health which launched her into her own business as an independent planner.

Favorite Travel Spots? Santa Fe, New Mexico. All mountain ranges. Sitting in my chair reading a good book about other cultures.

Hobbies/Extracurricular Activities? Hiking, kayaking, reading, gardening

Favorite Parts of KC? Plaza

Something unique about you? I went to a different school almost every year growing up. It made me understand that there are so many different ways to live a life at an early age.

Something on your bucket list? Travel to South America and Canada.

Stay tuned for next month’s Board Member spotlight coming in mid-November!
