I am leaving the industry, but want to keep my membership, can I do that?
Yes, the membership belongs to you, the individual, not the company. You will be classifieed as a Planner or Supplier.
My company is not going to be happy about the membership not belonging to them. What if they want somebody else to become a member? How does that work?
Your company can obtain a free 6-month trial membership. They can do this by contacting the MPI Member Care at 972-702-3053.
John/Jane Doe is a member of MPI but is no longer with our company; how do I update the member information to put my name and contact information in his/her place?
The MPI membership belongs to the individual - therefore we cannot place your contact information in another's place. Here are a couple of options:
Can I purchase a list of members?
- This person can transfer his/her membership to you by signing a "transfer release form" available at MPI Int'l under Membership and Membership Forms. Once that is complete, you will need to complete the membership application yourself. When the documents have been completed fax them into MPI Member Care at 972-702-3065. It will cost $100 to transfer the membership. If the membership is up for renewal then it makes sense for you to join as a new member.
- "Employer Complimentary Limited Membership" which is free to your employer for 6 months only and comes with the following benefits: MPI's exclusive e-mail newsletters and the The One+ magazine; local Chapter affiliation and access to the members-only section of the website. When the member renews at the end of the 6-month period he/she will receive the full benefits of a member.
From MPIWSC: Yes, you can purchase mailing labels (addresses only). We don't sell e-mails or phone numbers. Contact our Chapter Managers at 425-778-6162.
How do I use the website to post a job opening?
For MPI Int'l: Please contact MPI Member Care at 972-702-3053 for assistance with the Job Bank.
For MPIWSC: Go to the Career section of the website, then "Post a Job" and complete the online form.
What are the future MPI Conference dates?
