Welcome to another great year of MPI Kansas City. It is my honor and privilege to serve as your chapter president for the 2016-2017 year. I look forward to tonyballardinteracting with many of you throughout the year at one of our fabulous events.

As members of the board, we are here to serve you! Reach out to us and let us know what we can do to assist you in your role as a meeting professional. We want your ideas and assistance in moving our organization forward. Is there something we haven’t done in a while that you sure wish we would bring back? Have we been doing something that really is not providing any benefit to you as a member? Whatever it may be, we want to hear from you! After all, this is YOUR organization!

In order to be the best MPI chapter that we can be, we need YOU! Find a way to get involved. Contact our chapter administrator, Aesha Beattle, at info@mpikc.org and tell her you want to get involved. She will work with members of the board to find a fit for you that expands upon your strengths and your passions. Make the most of your membership by attending our events, serving the organization, and supporting our members by Buying MPI! I look forward to seeing you at many events throughout the year!
