August 2018 Bluegrass Beat Print

President's Connection

Hello MPI Members!

Now that August is upon us many of you are preparing for the beginning of school and wondering where the summer went. As the saying goes, “Time flies when you’re having fun” In July, we hosted one of the most well attended meetings in recent years. Again a big “thank you” to the Education committee – Morgan, Hannah and Trish - for the successful event at the Louisville Omni Hotel. This event started the forward momentum that we have needed to expose more people to our chapter. As we move forward this year, I encourage each of you to invite a guest to our meetings. Together, we can grow our MPI Chapter!

Our Education Committee continues to work on more interaction between our MPI Chapter and other organizations in Kentucky. Each of these efforts will be beneficial in creating more networking opportunities for all of us. Networking and learning more about our industry and the resources available will enable each of us to grow and be more successful.

 I look forward to this year and challenge each of our members to become more active with the chapter.  Don’t forget to join us on September 20th! Our next meeting will be at the Hilton Cincinnati Airport in Northern Kentucky. See you soon.


Ducan Hines
2018-2019 President

MPI Introduces the MPI Cares Program

Overview of Program

Meeting Professionals International (MPI) is an organization with strong values of responsibility and integrity. Per our Principles of Professionalism, MPI is committed to providing safe, harassment-free environments, where open dialogue, ethical behavior and constructive communication are encouraged.

If a member observes and/or experiences unprofessional behavior, he or she is encouraged to report it via the MPI Cares Hotline, which is hosted by third-party provider, EthicsPoint. If preferred, members have the option to submit reports anonymously via the hotline.

Additionally, the MPI Cares Hotline can be utilized to seek guidance and/or clarity related to MPI’s policies and procedures, as well as for providing suggestions, positive feedback and member testimonials or stories. MPI guarantees that all comments will be reviewed.
