Getting the Most Out of Your Membership
One of the greatest benefits in store for you is leadership development. MPI-CAC is nearly 100% volunteer driven and the chapter’s progress is limited only by the commitment of its members.
Get involved with a committee to Grow Your Career & Build Your Business:
Hone your leadership skills
Gain vital professional development
Broaden your network and industry knowledge
Your role on a committee is determined by you. Please review the committee descriptions and choose one or two that interest you. Then complete the Join a Committee Form and a member of the Leadership Development team will be in touch with you.
Your Business Connections Source
One of the most popular benefits of your MPI-CAC membership is the Membership Directory; a listing of all members and their contact information.
The Membership Directory is available to MPI-CAC members in 2 forms:
The printed Membership Directory is automatically mailed to all active MPI-CAC members in October each year. Should you wish to receive the current 2013-14 Membership Directory, please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org while keeping in mind that the complete and most up-to-date Membership Directory is available to you via www.mpicac.org any time under the Community tab.
Connect and Learn with MPI-CAC’s Events
MPI-CAC provides abundant opportunities to increase both your industry knowledge and contacts with world-class educational programs and engaging networking events held in some of the area’s most unique venues. View the MPI-CAC Chapter Event Calendar for upcoming events, and check back often to see what new events are added. As you attend events, look out for Membership Committee representatives who are there to help make introductions.

New members will receive a special invitation to attend a Mixer within the first two months of joining.
