Message from the Chapter President



I want to start by saying, I am truly grateful for this opportunity, to represent our incredible organization, MPIKC, as your President. I am humbled, not only for the title that I am being honored with, but more so because of the caliber of the people I represent. To have the privilege to serve this organization, that is comprised of professionals that do such incredible work and that are dedicated to the betterment of the hospitality and meetings industry; this is truly what makes being MPIKC Chapter President so meaningful to me.

It is the mission and vision of MPI to connect the global meeting and event community to learn, innovate, collaborate and advocate by leading and empowering the meeting and event community to change the world. We’re focused on people, dedicated to collaboration and we, as an organization, carry all of this out with unrelenting enthusiasm and passion.

My personal mission as your chapter president is motivated by my desire to do all that I can for the continued education and betterment of the chapter. I will support our board of directors and committees in any way I can. The 2018 – 2019 Board of Directors vows to grow our membership, listen to our current members, provide more volunteer opportunities, educational opportunities, and provide our sponsors with additional reach.  We are dedicated, we are enthusiastic and we are ready to take on the coming year.

MPIKC has over 165 beautiful members, over 38% of which are involved. I encourage each of you to think about something that has inspired you, and determine what you can do next, for YOUR MPIKC, for your career, and for your profession. It is my job to ensure that there are opportunities available to you, and it’s your job to actively pursue them.  You’ll always miss 100% of the shots you don’t take – so take your shot where it counts, on an incredible organization called MPIKC.

Thank you again for the faith you have placed in me, and for the privilege to serve as your president in the 37th year of Meeting Professionals International, Kansas City Chapter.

Thank you,
Devin Carver, CMP
2018 – 2019 MPIKC Chapter President
Sales Manager at Bishop-McCann
