Spring Has Sprung!
Spring has sprung, and MPIGNY is ready to roll with lots of great events!
April was about giving back, both globally and locally. On April 6, we celebrated the meetings industry with NYPCMA – and our industry colleagues worldwide – at our annual GMID event at the New York Marriott at The Brooklyn Bridge. Later in April, a group of 14 MPIGNY members and friends joined together to volunteer for NY Cares Day Spring. Together, they ventured up to the Bronx to help clean up a local park and give back to our local community. Keep your eyes open for announcements on other upcoming volunteer opportunities!
Coming up we have our next education event, on Wednesday, May 24. Join us as we collaborate with MJM Creative at The Chocolate Factory Theatre to tackle the all too relevant topic of Death by PowerPoint. Come learn about new trends, then join us for some rooftop networking! And don't forget to Save the Date for our annual Genie Awards and Kalahari Golf Outing. Lots is in store!
Here's what's happening with MPIGNY.

May Education Event: What If Power Point Ceased to Exist
MPI Greater New York, in partnership with MJM Creative, invites you to join us for an evening of networking and discovery. "Death by PowerPoint" as General McChrystal terms the misuse and over-use of the 1987 software, is what we are all up against. Why is content delivery format important? This keynote presentation and master class explores alternatives to the traditional content delivery methods such as PPT, videos and the panel discussion – and will explain the logic behind their power. MJM Creative is a leader in designing experiences that liberate leaders to make indelible, transformative impressions on their attendees.
