On Jan. 30, Meetings Professionals International Southern California Chapter held its 2018 “State of the Industry” luncheon at the Pasadena Convention Center. Amanda Armstrong, CMP, incoming chair of the MPI International Board of Directors, was the keynote speaker. In her address, she encouraged MPI members to volunteer. “Find something you’re passionate about and raise your hand. Volunteering is a great way to try out new skills. Don’t be afraid to be a rookie.”
