While we are in the midst of busy season, remember the phrase, April showers bring May flowers!  Whether you have been intensely preparing for a May annual meeting or conference or your business continues booming in May or you've been studying for the May CMP exam, take a deep breath and look for the flowers blooming around you both personally and professionally this month.  I hope that you are seeing personal and professional growth as well as achievements from your hard work!   

MPI North Florida Annual RetreatMPI North Florida is seeing growth and development at a chapter membership level and within our committee and board leadership.  We have enjoyed welcoming new members each month this year and hope to see this pattern continue!  In April, our Annual Retreat was hosted by the beautiful Casa Marina Hotel & Restaurant in Jacksonville Beach.  During our retreat, our incoming 2015-2016 Board of Directors met for two days presenting, discussing and preparing the chapter's goals for its business plan, budget and participating in teambuilding activities.  Pictured on the right are VP of Membership Kim Wygle, Director of Administration Peggy O'Brien and MPI Chapter Business Manager Holly Dotson with a floral centerpiece they designed during Director of Special Events Misty Beasley's creative presentation at the annual retreat.  Each of our incoming board members has incredible talent and skills he/she is bringing to our chapter and we are all looking forward to another successful year.  Take this opportunity to get involved with MPI North Florida on a committee and watch your professional development grow!

Marathon & Beyond MagazineIn May, we are presenting speaker Matt Judge, from TJC Event Solutions, during two educational luncheons, one in Jacksonville and one in Tallahassee.   To learn more about Matt, check out this article from Marathon & Beyond Magazine, titled "My Most Unforgettable Not-Quite Marathon".  You will not regret reading this inspiring story that gives you an insight into who Matt is and if you're like me, you will smile, laugh and maybe have watery eyes while reading!  From attending this presentation, titled "It All Starts with the C Word", you will be better equipped to land new business, sell your program or service no matter how you feel about sales!


MPI North Florida Annual Awards Gala & InstallationBe on the lookout this month for an e-mail from MPI North Florida requesting that you vote on the Members' Choice Awards!  Members are being nominated by our Board of Directors for their engagement and service to the chapter and we hope you'll take the time to vote so we can acknowledge and show our appreciation to them!  Please save the date for our Tuesday, June 16 Annual Awards Gala & Installation at TPC Sawgrass Clubhouse.  It'll be a 6pm - 9pm gala you won't want to miss.  Come celebrate this year's accomplishments with us and get excited about the 2015-2016 year!

Good luck to all our CMP candidates taking their exam this month!  We are cheering for you!

Let's take it to the next level,

Mandie McKenzie, CMP
