Karyn Altman Scholarship Fund - SES

MPI South Florida Chapter is pleased to announce the winners of the First-time Karyn Altman Education Scholarship WEC Contest.  Cathy Fox and Erin Branham have won conference registration for the MPI WEC which will be held in Las Vegas, NV, June 19-22, 2017.  The Karyn Altman Scholarship Fund was created in memory of this dedicated and valuable MPI member who gave tirelessly to our chapter, both as a board member and advocate for industry education, until her passing in late 2015.  The scholarship is intended to promote industry knowledge and professional growth for members of our chapter.  The Committee was tasked with selecting up to two winners out of a pool of qualified applicants.  These exceptional winners will benefit from the educational and professional opportunities presented by the WEC.  Moreover, they have a proven track record of participation in our South Florida Chapter.  We look forward to hearing back from Cathy & Erin on their experience at the WEC and know they will represent the MPISFL Chapter well! We’d also like to thank all those that applied for this scholarship and encourage everyone to pursue the opportunity.

Members now have a chance to apply for a conference registration scholarship to attend the upcoming MPI Sunshine Education Summit (previously the MPI SEC), taking place at the Marriott Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL from August 16-19, 2017. Represent your chapter, meet MPI members from around the state and region and learn what is happening in our ever changing industry.  Up to two scholarships of a maximum of $350 each (one planner and one supplier at the Early Bird rates) will be awarded. Please see the application for more details. Deadline to submit an application is June 23rd, 2017. Decisions will be made by early July. Don’t let this wonderful opportunity pass you by. Apply today for the Karyn Altman Education Scholarship to attend the SES!
