MPI Official Statement re: Southern California Wildfires

“The news of massive fires in Southern California is saddening and really hits close to home for me personally. MPI extends our deepest sympathies to all impacted by the wildfires. While we have not yet heard of any direct impact to members of our Southern California, Orange County and San Diego chapters, we will keep them in our thoughts and prayers. If you would like to show your support with a donation, we encourage you to explore the many organizations helping with relief efforts including the American Red Cross of Ventura County, the United Way of Ventura County and the Salvation Army of Ventura County.”

– Paul Van Deventer, President and CEO of Meeting Professionals International
