Hello, I’m Amy Cowden, CMP – MPISD Chapter President.  Welcome!

Happy New Year MPISD!  Your Board of Directors is kicking off 2017 with a mid-year retreat up in Temecula at South Coast Winery where we’ll take stock of what we’ve accomplished in 2016 and finalize our plans for 2017.  I propose that you also take stock of your MPI involvement and see if you’re maximizing your membership benefits & opportunities to THRIVE….not just survive.

During our Gala back in June, I spoke of how MPI is a collaborative organization that helps our members thrive by providing human connections to: knowledge & ideas, relationships and marketplaces.  Here’s what I suggested you do on an individual basis to THRIVE with your MPI membership.

  • I encouraged you to take advantage of the benefits you have as a member of the MPI San Diego chapter.
  • I implored you to tell your chapter leaders what we could provide that would help you thrive.
  • I challenged you to participate as a volunteer to see where the experiences took you.

I am excited about the plans the board has for the coming year to help you as members not just survive in your career but to THRIVE!
