• MPI Sacramento/Sierra Nevada Named Three Award Winners for Chapter

     
    POSTED October 6, 2014
     
The Sacramento/Sierra Nevada Chapter of Meeting Professionals International (MPISSN) recently presented three annual awards.
 
The Rena McDonald-Rising Star Award was won by Michael Hutchings, project coordinator of Statewide Conference and Events for AGC of California. The Rising Star Award recognizes MPI members devoting significant time and effort to the organization, but who have yet to attain a leadership status. These devoted members will become the future leaders of the MPI Sacramento/Sierra Nevada chapter.
 
The Chapter Leader of the Year Award, presented to Mary Cook, CMP, senior account executive at Sacramento Production and Lighting, recognizes the local commitment and outstanding service of a chapter member.
 
The Crystal Platter Award, recognizes the most outstanding venue in the area of facility, service, and food and beverage. This award was received by the Holiday Inn Sacramento - Capitol Plaza. 

Anyone who has spent much time in the meetings and events industry knows that the people involved tend to be a social bunch. That’s especially true for the industry associations with chapters in Colorado. It was hard to keep these crews contained during the COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s nice to see association gatherings back in action, ranging from happy hours and education sessions to annual galas.
