Association Planners Overview

Did you know that 25% of MPI’s membership are association meeting and event planners?

They also may need to book citywide events years in advance.

MPI supports its community of 2,000 Association Planners through targeted educational offerings and social activities.


Members of the MPI Association Planners community receive all the benefits of MPI membership, plus so much more.
