WHAT CAN MPI

DO FOR YOU?
BY COLLEEN JASINSKI

I

joined MPI about two years
ago, but it might as well have
been yesterday. While I have
always known MPI would offer
some great industry networking
opportunities, unfortunately,
I must admit, I didn't know much more
than that. I was unsure how to go about
doing more, a little shy about asking,
and blamed it on a "busy schedule."
Thus, I ended up just waiting to see
what information would drop into my
email inbox. That is, until now.
As they say, with anything in life, you
only get out what you put in. And knowing
that I wanted to do more with MPI,
I decided to begin this new year with a
renewed commitment to the organization
and to the many opportunities available

to me as a member. My first step was to
contact my local chapter, MPI Greater
New York, and find out what volunteer
opportunities were available and where
I could become more involved. That
contact led to a connection with the
Marketing & Communications Committee,
which led to a request to write an
article for the upcoming magazine,
and ... voilà! Getting more involved with
MPI is just that easy, and volunteering
is just one way to make the most of
your membership.

Education and Career
Development
One of the most significant benefits
and, in my humble opinion, alone
worth the cost of membership is MPI's

contributions to the career development
of its members. Through educational
opportunities, CMP support, job
board listings and scholarships, the
organization is dedicated to assisting its
members in all aspects of building the
career of their dreams.
MPI Academy is the backbone of
MPI's educational offerings, providing a
wide range of professional development
options, from individual webinars
focusing on specific knowledge goals
to complete professional certificate
programs. The Academy's courses are
open to all members in good standing,
and programs are tailored to both the
novice planner as well as seasoned
professionals looking to take the next
step in their careers.
