@MPIGNY - Winter 2014 - (Page 21)

showcased via Twitter on an ongoing basis. The collection of ideas would keep growing month-to-month and would culminate with a highlight of insights, so to speak, at our annual recognition event, the Genies, in June 2014. By design, the responses received also allow for current leadership to implement ideas we receive in real time. In fact, two stickers from the October event contained ideas that were so simple that we implemented them within 30 days for the November program. To increase networking, one person asked that planners and suppliers be easily identified on the name badges, and another member suggested posting the speakers' Twitter handle on the screen to increase engagement. To build a GREATER NY, it's not always some earth shattering idea that makes an impact. Sometimes genius can come out of nowhere, from anyone and be in the form of a sticker. Join the conversation.

I was born and raised in Arizona. I currently live in Colorado, but I am moving to the East Coast in December. I am one of five children with a twin sister. I am recently engaged to an outstanding guy! I love volleyball, working, family, friends, traveling and cooking. I have been in sales almost my entire life and absolutely love it! I love finding new customers/friends and building longlasting relationships for life! In sales, you are a part of a team that helps you be creative, innovative and motivated to be the best. Why did you decided to join MPIGNY? I decided to join MPIGNY mainly because of the people. When I was in Las Vegas for MPI WEC, I felt a warm welcome from so many members of the MPI Greater New York Chapter, and I knew it was the right place for me. Meghan has great energy and shows passion for her chapter. I had no doubt it would be the best chapter to join. How long have you been a member? I joined in July of 2013. What committees are you on and what is your role? I currently help with Strategic Events and my role is co-chair for the Auction/ Mixology with Carly (Roncaglio). My main role is to make this year's event the greatest event yet! What is your favorite part about belonging to MPIGNY? My favorite part about belonging to MPIGNY would be the people. Everyone loves to be involved and help each other out wherever they can. Going to networking events or chapter events are fun and very entertaining. What keeps you coming to the MPIGNY programs? I keep coming to the MPIGNY programs because I enjoy being around all the members. I am new to the industry, and it is really nice to meet new people and learn about our great industry. What's your favorite MPIGNY program so far? My favorite MPIGNY program would be the After 6 Mix! Networking is one of my favorite things to do! How would you value the relationships you build with MPIGNY? The value of the relationships I build from MPIGNY are truly priceless. It is hard to meet outstanding people today, and so far everyone I have come in contact with at MPI has made an impact on me. What is your greatest source of job satisfaction? I love working at ACTIVE Network, and my greatest source of job satisfaction would be meeting new people and finding what solutions work best for their needs while building a long-lasting relationship with them. Anything else you want to share (personal, hobbies, etc.)? My favorite television networks are The Food Network, HGTV and AMC. I have nine nieces and nephews (and counting). I enjoy working out and Pilates. I secretly enjoy Starbucks peppermint mocha frappuccino. I enjoying making others happy! What is your New Year's resolution?
