MPI HEARTLAND CHAPTER

OCTOBER/NOVEMBER 2019 NEWSLETTER

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
This is a time of change. Just in the past month my career along with my personal life had been affected by multiple changes. As the seasons change, children are going back to school, the 2019 year is wrapping up and soon it will be 2020. In July the MPI Heartland Board was installed and is filled with many new faces who have become part of our fabulous organization.  Those fresh new ideas mixed with the experienced board officers and committee members will be collaborating together to bring new and exciting changes to the 2019-2020 year. Everything from holding the July 2019 meeting in unique venue at The Jewell located within the Omaha Marriott Downtown at the Capitol District to pairing the April 2020 Chapter Meeting with a Global Meeting Industry Day Social (GMID). The MPI Heartland Chapter Board is looking for unique ways to provide one of a kind experiences for our membership.

As we know the events industry is in constant change, from hotel & venue’s constancy growing inventory, to how we move forward with planning meetings & conferences.  These changes stretch our imaginations while helping us grow as industry professionals. 

I am looking forward to serving as the MPI Heartland Chapter President and challenge all of you to embrace the changes that are presented to you.
