“There are hundreds of thousands of meeting professionals around the world who don’t belong to any professional associations. MPIWeb Connect gives them an opportunity to experience MPI’s content and interact with our vibrant community.” Junior Tauvaa, vice president of member services and chapter business for MPI Non-Members Connect Like Never Before WANT MPI ON THE GO? YOU GOT IT. MPI has introduced exclusive, on-the-go access to the industry’s most robust content library through a mobile website at m.mpiweb.org and an iPhone app, available free at the iTunes App Store. The two platforms link to MPIWeb. org, which offers members full access to articles, white papers, research reports, case studies, videos, webinars and tools, in addition to the industry-leading Career Connections job board, the MPI community directory and dozens of unique user groups. MPI members also have unique access to all One+ magazine features and archives. The pace of change has never been as intense as it is today, and MPI leaders understand that members benefit most from the ability to share knowledge and resources with each other. “Our member value has never been greater than it is today,” said Bruce MacMillan, C.A., president and CEO of MPI. “Our community offers high-level engagement on regional, national and international levels, and our renewed focus on industry content centers on concepts and issues significant to the modern meeting professional: effective MPI Member MPI CONTENT Articles, research, session videos, white papers MPIWeb Connect User Select Access Non-Member Rate Full Access 15 Day Delay Non-Member Rate Full Access Visitors No Access Non-Member Rate No Access No Access Non-Member Rate No Access Full Access Member Rate Full Access Immediate Access Member Rate Full Access MPI CHAPTER EVENTS MPI COMMUNITY DIRECTORY MPI JOB BANK MPI CONFERENCES MPI WEB GROUPS career management, strategic meetings management, and corporate social responsibility.” Taking action to support the industry, MPI also recently introduced an economical way for non-member planners to access limited aspects of the organization’s Web content. The launch of MPIWeb Connect, a purely virtual experience, allows MPI to share select content with the larger meeting and event community, help the industry forecast trends and activate change on a large scale, support meeting professionals’ success within their individual career paths and prove the value of our industry and the professions within it. “There are hundreds of thousands of meeting professionals around the world who don’t belong to any professional associations,” said Junior Tauvaa, vice president of member services and chapter business for MPI (see his column on Page 10). “MPIWeb Connect gives them an opportunity to experience MPI’s content and interact with our vibrant community.” With MPIWeb Connect, qualified meeting planners can also gain (timedelayed) access to the industry’s top job board. The presence of these new online-only participants will broaden the scope of the greater MPI community, cultivating increased information transfer, career connections and marketplace opportunities. The MPIWeb Connect experience allows MPI members to share a small piece of their full membership value with their meeting planner friends and colleagues, while strongly highlighting the exclusivity and value of the full MPI membership experience. —JESSIE STATES mpiweb.org 21 http://m.mpiweb.org http://www.mpiweb.org
