Spring It On! This year’s Spring Education Day is packed with opportunity to renew relationships, grow your knowledge and get in on the Community Outreach action.

Professional Business Portraits

David LaHaye will be offering heavily discounted head shots to all attendees. Take this opportunity to update your current head shot or have a professional, polished photo of yourself taken.

Time: 9:45 am - 10:45 am
Cost: $30, cash only (This is a 70% discount!)

Limited spots available! 

Renew your relationship with fellow MPI-er’s on Tuesday evening at a fundraising reception at The Pfister Hotel's Blu on the 23rd floor. Challenge our own MPI “Blu-tenders” to mix your favorite cocktail and tip them well as ALL of their tips (and 10% of the sales from the reception) will be donated back to the chapter.

On Wednesday, 9/11 Pentagon Survivor, Dan Holdridge, will share his incredible experience while teaching us to grow our inner strength and align our personal identity between ourselves and those we serve, helping us manifest our purpose. 2014-2015 MPI Chairman of the Board, Kevin Kirby, will help us grow by sharing invaluable marketing ideas. The afternoon breakout sessions will allow you to choose your path of growth as we offer sessions on hybrid meetings, understanding third party organizations, and learning more about the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) designation. In a fun, interactive closing session, Tracy Stuckrath will grow our food and beverage knowledge by showcasing trends in F&B around the world and how they can be paired with meeting design.
To build off last year’s success, we are putting our Community Outreach program in to action once again. After collecting your donations, we will create Hospitality Bags and inspirational messages for the families that stay at the Ronald McDonald House of Eastern Wisconsin.
