Welcome New Members
MPI Toronto Chapter welcomes the following new members who have joined since the last issue of the newsletter.
Rodd Hotels and Resorts
As someone who has been a part of this incredible community for over 20 years, I’m thrilled to address you as your President. The journey we've been on has been transformative, to say the least. Today, I want to talk about our current landscape and how we can forge ahead.
MPI Toronto is overseen by a group of member volunteers who ensure our Chapter is delivering the services that the local membership will benefit from. The Board is comprised of the President, President-Elect, Past President, Vice-Presidents, and Directors who help set the strategic direction. The volunteer committees are overseen by the various Chairs who ensure the operational success and coordination of activities. With this year’s change to a calendar financial year, the current Leadership team will serve until December 31, 2024.
Planning continues for our Chapter’s events, and we are excited to share our calendar and how you can get involved through Partnerships, Sponsorships, In-Kind and Donations throughout the year. Please visit our website under the Partnership tab to find and download the complete Prospectus.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
MPI Toronto acknowledges that the land its members live and work on is the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and Wendat Peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and that our chapter membership falls across Ontario where there are 133 distinct First Nations.
Biases are neither good or bad, but as a facilitator, it is important to know your own biases and also the biases of participants which can have a drastic effect on participation, engagement, collaboration, and creativity.

Past Events
The MPI Toronto Chapter held its Annual General Meeting (AGM) virtually on Thursday, September 21st.  Over 50 members participated, and 39 proxies were submitted, meeting the required quorum to vote on any motions submitted – including accepting the Board’s financial report and approving the actions of the Leadership Team of 2022-23.   
This year for the first time, MPI Toronto organized an MPI membership breakfast on the opening day of the Canadian Meetings + Events Expo that ended up being a sold out event.
