MPI Pittsburgh holds one monthly chapter education program each month of the academic year beginning in August and ending in June. In most cases, the program is held on the first Wednesday of the month.

The full schedule of education programs is posted on the MPI Pittsburgh website along with event details, locations and times, session outcomes and presenter biographies. You can pre-register for each event well in advance to take advantage of the early bird rates or by using the benefits of a pre-purchased Season Pass.

We welcome opportunities to host a meeting in your superior venue. Reach out to us by submitting an RFP.

Invigorating content and superior education is what sets MPI Pittsburgh apart from other industry organizations. Are you interested in being a part of our culture? Would you like to present/speak/facilitate one of our events? Submit your RFP here.
