Meeting MPI Toronto - May/June 2015 - (Page 5)

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE Chapter Success Hit All the Senses LEE-ANNE LECKIE, CMP Sales Manager The International Centre lleckie@internationalcentre.com The MPI Toronto Chapter's vision is to "make our members successful by building human connections through knowledge/ideas, relationships and business opportunities." Have we contributed to your success? Is there something that you feel is missing? Please reach out to any member on our Leadership Team and let us know if there is something you would like to see. We started out this year celebrating our successes! We shouted from the rooftops how great the MPI Toronto's community is. We have had some great successes this year, and they can all fall under the theme of this publication: "5 Senses." Sight: The newly formatted Annual General Meeting and the Volunteer Recognition event. Did you see the number of volunteers on the stage? Amazing! A big thank you to all of our volunteers. Hearing: We are listening to what our members want by asking the question - "MPI is the answer, what is your question?" Taste: What an experience at the February Signature Series event, with an actual "food fight" and tasting three incredible dishes and actually voting on the winner. Smell: The amazing smell of a brand new hotel and our sold-out Holiday Gala back in December. Touch: Due to our member's generosity, we have touched many lives in giving back to our Meeting Professionals International Toronto Chapter 6700 Century Ave. Suite 100 Mississauga, ON L5N 6A4 Tel: 905-567-9591 Fax: 1-866-768-8168 office@mpitoronto.org www.mpitoronto.org Published by: 1630 Ness Ave. Suite 300 Winnipeg, MB R3J 3X1 Tel: 800-665-2456 Fax: 204-947-2047 www.naylor.com Group Publisher: Angela Caroyannis community with donations to the Breakfast With Santa Charity, the Children's Book Bank, the Scott Project Manager: Kim Davies Mission and the Yonge Street Mission. Editor: Sarah Sain Take a peek inside this edition of MEE TING for some more areas that we have touched on with the 5 Senses. This year has gone by so fast, and this is my last President's Message. It has truly been an honour to serve as your President this year, and to work with such a dedicated Leadership Team was amazing. At our last Leadership Summit, the group was working on our future Strategic Plan. I paused to look around the room and everyone was so completely engaged and working together as a team to bring to you, the member, the benefit of your membership with MPI. All of this could not have been done without the passion of our Leadership Team and our committee volunteers - thank you for your commitment - you have made this year a great success! To our family at Fletcher Wright - Leslie, Nikki, Jason, Stuart and Maggie - each year there is more and more to do; however, somehow, it always gets done and with a big smile on all of your faces. Thank you! To you the member - thank you for being a part of our community - for reaching out and for letting us know what is working and where we can improve! Happy Summer!
