President’s Message:


   Thank you for stopping by the Eastern Great Lakes Chapter website!
   Where has the year gone??  It doesn’t seem possible that July is almost over and MPI is starting its new fiscal year! 
   I’m excited(and let’s face it – a little scared!) to be taking over as our Chapter President and look forward to continuing
   the momentum that took place under Lisa Carcaci’s leadership during the past two years.  I know that I have big shoes to fill!
   I can’t stress enough the fact that as your Board of Directors, we are here to serve YOU!  Without you, MPI Eastern Great
   Lakes Chapter wouldn’t exist.  In order to better serve you, we hope that you will reach out to us and give us your feedback. 
 What are we doing great?  What can we improve on?  Are the Educational Programs we offer relevant to you?  And if not – what do you want to see offered?
We are always looking for volunteers to join in on the planning and execution of these events – or to join us on the Board!  If you are interested, please reach out to me or any of the board members for the many opportunities available to get involved and invested in our chapter!
I’m so looking forward to this year and look forward to seeing you at upcoming events!
