September President’s Message
We all remember the excitement of back to school, whether it was the anticipation of new classes, new friends or new experiences. I was very fortunate this August to have been the recipient of one of the FMAV scholarships for the Event Design Certificate program that was held at Ryerson University in Toronto. I immersed myself for three days in the #eventcanvas process and am now on my way to earning my CED accreditation. It was a wonderful experience where I met other chapter leaders and hospitality professionals from across Canada and around the world. I am always looking for ways to learn new things and grow professionally. This certainly checked all the boxes. It would not have been possible without the support and offerings of the MPI Foundation.
Why not enjoy this wonderful time of year by trying something new? Identify what sparks your interest, and go for it. You will never get bored if you are always learning! And on that note, I invite everyone to join us September 14 at the Annual General Meeting to learn about everything that was accomplished by MPI Ottawa in 2016-17.
