What's New at IPEN?
We hope you enjoyed your summer!
The Vancouver Island Professional Event Network is now the Vancouver Island Pod of the MPI BC Chapter. At June’s event at the Victoria Marriott Inner Harbour, the IPEN Board of Directors announced the beginning of IPEN’s transition. On September 11th, we signed the Vancouver Island POD Charter Agreement with the MPI Board in Vancouver.
Over the next month, we will be transitioning communication from this email address to MPI’s platform – so keep your eyes peeled for more information on how to opt-in.
The inaugural Executive Committee of the Vancouver Island Pod is excited to present our first event on October 8th, 2013.
Throughout the year MPI BC Chapter offers education events in October, January, February (BC Education Conference – formerly “It’s T.I.M.E.”), March (AGM), April (National Meetings Industry Day) and May. These education events support MPI’s mandate for professional development. Additionally we facilitate a CMP Study Group to assist new CMP candidates. Some of these events will be hosted in both Vancouver and on Vancouver Island - stay tuned for dates and speakers!
We also offer a number of networking opportunities throughout the year. Some of these Vancouver events include the September Schmooze, the industry December Social and a spectacular June Gala. All Island Pod members are welcome to join – or register for an event on the island!
