Congratulations on being selected to serve your local membership as an MPI Chapter Leader. Running a chapter is a lot like running your own business. To help you be successful in this endeavor, MPI Global provides free, online leadership training to all our Chapter Office of the President, VPs and Directors. We realize that there might be a lot going on in your world. That is why we don't expect you to take the training all at once. You can space out your training over the next couple of months.
In times of crisis, business continuity becomes more important than ever. This training will help you set your chapter up for success, and prepare you to lead during this time of change and uncertainty. When the industry recovers, our members will need MPI more than ever. Completing this leadership training will help your chapters be the resource they need to find professional education, support and career resources. If your employment or business has been impacted by the current pandemic, and you are worried about your ability to maintain your MPI membership, contact our Membership department at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn what relief policies we have in place.
Online training consists of two parts. The first part is for all chapter leaders, which we ask you complete before your annual retreat. The second part is your role-specific training.
Please complete all training by June 15. Send certificates of completion to your President and/or Chapter Administrator so they can keep track of your progress.*
We recommend you set aside an hour a week for the first month to complete the essential training prior to your Annual Retreat. During the second month, we recommend you set aside about an hour to complete your role-specific training before you get to WEC and the Chapter Business Summit.
This training will remain in your Academy library year-round, if you need to reference the materials and resources. If you need to add board members throughout the year, please send their name and email to Yvonne Moreno at email@example.com so she can give them access to this content. Additional resources for chapter leaders may be found on the Chapter Leader Resource page, once you log into mpi.org.
*Chapter Presidents/Administrators: Please hold all certificates to forward to your COM at one time with your compliance documents.
