In the MPI fiscal year, 2010-2011, the year that Don Diorio was Chapter President, Don encouraged a group of dedicated members to gather to begin writing a three-year vision for our association that would take us to new experiences for our members, our volunteers and the meeting professional community in New York.
The plan below reflects the comittment our association leaders have made to our members to stay focused, clear and vigilant to meeting and exceeding the needs of our members.
Thanks goes to the Strategic Plan Task Force that created this roadmap to our future success.
To create a supportive community for meeting professionals to achieve excellence for themselves and their organizations.
To provide education, networking and resources for meeting professionals in the Greater New York area.
