The Board Development Committee has completed its work and has developed a slate of officers and directors for the 2016 Board of Directors to present to the membership. Given the governance changes MPI made in the last year this was a challenging task for the committee to complete, as MPI faced the task of reducing the size of the board, while sorting through a deep pool of potential candidates. All the more gratifying that among professionals from all over the world is a Polish man.
All board applicants were interviewed by a member of the Board Development Committee to gain insight in to the experience, skills, strategic competencies and commitment they could bring to the board.
The proposed slate for the 2016 MPI International Board of Directors is as follows:
Fiona Pelham, Chair
Brian Stevens, Chair-Elect
Amanda Armstrong, Vice- Chair Finance
Kevin Kirby, Immediate Past Chair
Proposed three year terms expiring 2018:
Annette Gregg, LPL Financial
Anne Hamilton, Disney Worldwide Shared Services
Kevin Olsen, One Smooth Stone
Steve O’Malley, Maritz Travel
Proposed one year term expiring 2016:
Courtney Stanley, EventMobi
Proposed one year term extension expiring 2016:
Krzysztof Celuch, Poland Convention Bureau of Polish Tourism Organization
