MPI Potomac FYI
A Message from our Leadership
"I would characterize PMPI as a big chapter with a small chapter intimacy and feel!" Everett reflects on what a great experience it has been to be a part of (and a leader in) our wonderful chapter!
MACE! 2019
  
The noise is everywhere, making it more challenging than ever for your message to be heard. With so much noise, how is it possible to get noticed, stay top of mind or even get your brand off the starting line? The goal isn't to get noisier – that would be the answer if your were looking to be more annoying. Business will not just find you, you have to go and get it. But how can you get more business and rise to the top, above the noise and get noticed?

News & Announcements
Donating items to our auction catalog is a great way to support our fundraising efforts. PMPI recognizes the value of its members who supply goods and services and feels there should be additional benefits for those who help the chapter achieve its goals of superior professional development and networking opportunities.

Here are some reasons to consider a donation to the silent auction or providing a sponsorship:
- Proceeds received will help augment the cost of professional development and other member benefits of PMPI.
- You will receive recognition via Bidding For Good to more than 300,000 online bidders and the evening of the event.

To submit an item donation to this auction, you will be asked to provide some information about the item you would like to donate, along with digital pictures of the item. If your donation has an expiration date, we ask to set the date for at the earliest May 15, 2017. Be sure to maximize your exposure and add pictures of the items, your company logo and website to your posting.
