Administrative Planner



Administrative Planner

If you plan meetings, but you’re not called a “meeting planner,” you’re not alone. An estimated 80% of all meetings in Corporate America are planned by executive assistants, administrative professionals, marketing managers, HR professionals, learning coordinators and other team members who aren’t recognized as meeting professionals. 

MPI recognizes you. We know that you need education, support and encouragement that you’re doing the right thing. MPI Membership can also open new doors and connect you to potential career opportunities if you want meetings and events to become your full-time focus.
