The MPI Washington State Chapter (MPIWSC) was chartered on May 26, 1981. In 1981, we started the Chapter with 50 members and have grown to over 325 members in 2012. We continue to grow through our focus on strong education at monthly programs and multiple conferences, as well as with numerous networking opportunities provided at specialized events and community outreach events in addition to the educational events.
Servicing the entire state of Washington, MPIWSC's mission is to elevate members to the next level - empowering them to increase their strategic value with education, professional development and business growth opportunities. MPIWSC promotes this mission through a strong and committed membership engaged in volunteerism within the chapter and within the community, striving to better themselves by increasing their knowledge and skills sets as well as by expanding their reach with partners, suppliers and customers.
MPIWSC offers eight monthly educational programs each year along with six networking and celebratory events and numerous outreach opportunities. We have also enjoyed joint ventures with the MPI Oregon Chapter (Cascadia Educational Conference) and with the Pacific Northwest Chapter of PCMA (The Industry Summit) for over 10 years to further increase educational opportunities. MPIWSC joined the Washington Tourism Alliance to support the Meetings Industry at a grass roots level. We have collaborated with eight other industry associations for an annual industry event celebrating our peers, our partners and ourselves.
MPIWSC is the opportunity with in the local and international Meetings Industry to grow personally and professionally, get connected and ELEVATE YOURSELF.
