Student Mentor Program
In an effort to create an environment for building valuable relationships, MPIWSC introduces the Student Mentor Program. For 6 months, student members will be paired up with an experienced planner or supplier member.
Students will learn aspects of the meeting and event industry, increase their chapter knowledge and involvement, and expand their professional and personal network. Professionals will develop leadership and management skills, gain valuable volunteer hours through MPI, and potentially have the opportunity to recruit the student to his or her company or for an associated affiliate.
