Do You Have Leadership Potential? (copy)


Has anyone ever commented that you might be a great leader?

Are you already a great leader? 

Can you ignite Passion in others? 

Do you have a friend who is a great leader? 

MPI KBC is accepting nominations for the 2018-2019 Board of Directors. The term will start on July 1, 2018 and end on June 30, 2019. Any current chapter member is eligible to apply. 

As a Board member, you will be part of a team that develops and executes strategies that focus on chapter growth and ensuring that the needs of the membership base are met. Our friend and President-Elect, Duncan Hines, will be at the helm guiding the team. 

Board participation is a big responsibility, but it is also a very rewarding experience. You will develop deeper relationships with peers in our industry. You will gain insight into a different style of leadership (leading volunteers). You will have FUN! 

Now, some of the nuts and bolts of serving on the MPI KBC Board of Directors. There are 6-7 Board Meetings a fiscal year (most are immediately preceding the educational meetings). There are two Board retreats a year (typically December for ~ 1 day and May/June for 2 days). The members like to see Board members at events, so it is important that good Board representation is visible at all events. You won't do it all by yourself. The Board itself acts as a team that supports each other. Each Board member also leads a team of volunteers.
