 Meet Kevin Cummiskey 

Kevin is Producer/Creative Director of Lehrhoff Productions, Past MPI/NE President and Member since 1991
 

Early in my career, I was invited to be on the MPINE Board. So I said yes, and then… the beads of sweat started forming, as I realized I was about to have a place at the table, surrounded by icons of the meetings industry, people who’d been doing this for decades. At first, I didn’t say much, because I didn’t want to sound stupid or naïve. A friend on the board finally pulled me aside, “you know a lot more than you think you do, so get involved, Speak Up!” So I did. Haven’t stopped since. Ask anyone.

My point is I was so afraid of looking bad that I failed to realize how much I had to offer. Luckily, I was surrounded by some of the most thoughtful, supportive and committed people I’ve ever had the pleasure to know and to learn from. And there must be something about the New England water, because today’s volunteers and BOD members, and all who have come in between, continue to provide a nurturing environment where you can learn, teach and grow all at the same time. So, get involved, and when you do… Speak Up!
