Now is the time to be involved with MPISCC as we wrap up the current year and honor the past 40! I’ve had the opportunity to look back through four decades of successful leadership and incredible accomplishments. This is truly an exceptional chapter and we have much to look forward to. There is a packed calendar of events to share with you & dates already confirmed through 2019.

We’re proud to announce the Southern California Chapter Strategic Plan. This living document was created mid-year in collaboration with past presidents and the current board. Careful consideration was given to each area of our chapter. This long-term strategy will guide us for three to five years through succession planning and board transitions. Improvements will continue to be made in the number of networking opportunities we provide, the communications we send to you and the value of engaging with our chapter leadership by volunteering.

Event design can be staid and safe, with the same tropes repeated over and over again. Or it can be rebellious, offering something new, inventive, original and attention-grabbing.
