Our new MPI Toronto Chapter Just Networking Committee is just getting started with planning can't-miss events over the coming months. During this time when we are straddling the divide between working from home and revitalizing office cultures, we understand the importance of staying connected and building new relationships. We will be sharing tentative in-person and virtual dates to the MPI Toronto website shortly, so be sure to mark your calendars once they're available.

Our goal is to ensure our events facilitate true connections by being inclusive, relaxing, fun, and above all else, worth your time. Existing MPI members, you'll definitely want to include any industry friends who aren't yet members in the great times we have coming our way! We are a community of exceptional people who have persevered through exceptional times, and we look forward to celebrating each other, lifting each other up, and supporting our members in knocking off the dust as we move toward "peopling" again, in all its forms. Stay tuned!
