Message from the President

Hello MPI Pittsburgh Chapter! In the words of Justin Timberlake:

If you missed ouyr May Extravaganza-first and foremost, please congratulate the following people on their prestigious awards next time you see them:

Donna Mangold-Planner of the Year

Lisa Ashbaugh-Supplier of the Year

Carly Carolla-Student of the Year

The May party was a huge success and such a great time. I thank Tequila Cowboy for hosting as well as everyone that attended that helped contribute to our fundraising efforts to support this amazing chapter. All of the money collected through chance auction, silent auction, 50/50 and raffle tickets goes towards our monthly event costs. For example; speaker fees/gratuities, travel costs for the speakers, food/beverage, and much more.

Did you know the month of May's birthstone is an emerald which symbolizes love and success?! I encourage all of you to truly think of the successes you have had in your life thus far that makes you the person you are today. Write these successes down-BOLD the words and even display the piece of paper by your desk or wall. The successes you write down should be reminders that you are on a path of greatness and nothing is stopping you from achieving your goals. This chaper is here to support and cheer you on. I hope to hear about some of your successes at our next event which will be held on Wednesday, June 14th at Hotel Monaco at 5:30pm. This will be a great event, so make sure you register early.

Stephanie Montavon

President-MPI Pittsburgh Chapter
