"As an independent meeting designer and planner, I simply wouldn’t miss MPI Georgia’s Eventeract. This year, not only did I attend the conference, I volunteered on the committee for that additional knowledge and exposure. I learned a ton about choosing participant-focused content, about being creative with session formats and about working within a committee structure. Best of all? I got a hot business lead simply because of my involvement on the committee – my volunteer role gave me the opportunity to communicate with many industry leaders, and one of them reached out to me about working with her company in the future. My participation also gave me another, unrelated lead that has already converted to paying business. That’s the power of MPI Georgia involvement!"
