Engaged Member of the Month

Posted by: Kate Shea, Bankers Life on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 at 12:00:00 am

How did you become involved in MPI?
Three years ago I made the transition from Business Travel to Group Sales and had the pleasure of attending the MPI Education Day.  Based on my experience with the event I made the decision that this was the group I wanted to be part of as I began my new chapter in the group market.

What has been the most exciting moment or memorable thing that has happened since joining MPI?
Becoming active in the Membership Committee has been very rewarding.  One of my most memorable experiences with MPI is taking a new member through their beginning stages and now seeing them very active and actually a co-chair in another committee.  It is just like a proud Mommy moment!  Not to mention this recognition alone is exciting.

How did you become part of the event industry?
I actually started in the hotel industry right out of High School at the time was not my chosen path but with in 90 days I was promoted twice and the rest is now 20 years of history.

How has MPI impacted your career?
MPI has been a great resource for meeting potential clients and networking.  It is also strengthen my knowledge of the group industry and helps me prepare for my next steps!

Tell us something unique about you?
I think it is pretty unique that I have actually been with the same hotel for 20 years.  Not always in sales but with the same hotel.
