Leadership

MPI Washington State Chapter would not exist without volunteers. 

The success of the chapter is due in part to the chapter leaders and committee members.  Your chapter leaders are the Board of Directors which is a 1 or 2 year commitment.  Board members take a leadership role chapter and it is their job at the Annual Retreat to create the goals for the year and come up with the strategic plans for the chapter in order to have a successful chapter.  If you are interested in joining the Board of Directors please contact the This email address is being protected from spambots.

For those that can't committee to the Board or aren't ready and want to be more than a committee member, we have Chair positions available.  The Chairs are responsible for leading and managing the committee to which they choose to Chair.  The ideal plan would be that the Chairs would eventually move onto the Board.  If you are interested in being a committee Chair, please contact the This email address is being protected from spambots.
