http://www.mpistlouis.org/mpistl-july-2018-awards-celebration-recap/

This year’s Annual Awards Ceremony was held at 612North Events + Catering, a new venue located on Laclede’s Landing. Seventy of our guests devoured passed hors d’oeuvres, including a delicious assortment of sushi and top shelf beverages followed by a sit-down dinner. Attendees also enjoyed a variety of group photo booth opportunities, live music and breathtaking views of the downtown St. Louis skyline. Thank you to our sponsors: Decorum, Splash Promotions, 612North Events + Catering, TapSnap, ShutterBooth, Connie Duglin Specialty Linen, Porta Party DJ’s and Gateway Audio Visual for the partnership and helping to create such a successful event!

Jaime Britt, current President of MPI’s St. Louis Area Chapter, proudly shared that we have gained 77 new members this year totaling 276 members. We also had 82 members volunteer to serve on committees and our Education Satisfaction Survey Results exceeded average scores. This is significant as our chapter is awarded points from MPI Global for these three areas! Additionally, we received seven out of nine points and these points helped to provide quality speakers at no cost for our educational programs. Thank you for being a part of the Chapter’s success!
