Welcome to MPI-WI University…our Spring Education Event!
Join us on the campus of Green Lake Conference Center in Green Lake, WI for a fun-filled adventure with your MPI-WI classmates.
At MPI-WI University, you will have the opportunity to renew relationships, grow your knowledge, and help the community. As you arrive at Green Lake Conference Center, we encourage you to go back to your college roots of classes around the campus, dining hall meals, and sleeping in residence halls/lakeside hotels to enjoy all of the activities that we have in store for you! If you are interested in the ‘Greek’ feeling, get a group of friends together to take over one of the lake houses on sorority row.
We invite you to renew your relationships with fellow MPI-WI classmates on Wednesday evening at our Welcome Reception and Chairman’s Challenge. Incoming President, Claudia Cabrera, will challenge you to our dance activity of Salsa Dancing! Our professional instructor Dante Viscarra was born in La Paz, Bolivia, is an UW-Madison alum, and studied and practiced Jazz at the Rene Dupree Dance School in Hollywood, CA.
Our official day of MPI-WI University starts on Thursday, May 18 where we have a packed day of visiting exhibits (aka: Fraternities and Sororities) with a Strategic Alliance Partner rush, participating in a variety of classes by professors in the industry, and an engaging Community Outreach Project. Our keynote professors include celebrity speaker Scott Christopher to educate us on who are People People, Sarah Gibson enlightens us on managing the generational chain of command, and finally Jay Gubrud helps up improve the Supplier/Planner Relationship! The afternoon has three fun sessions to choose from including event design, business writing, and how to be a connector to create value every time. We can guarantee that these classes will allow you to enhance your knowledge to graduate MPI-WI University at the end of the day.
Scroll down for more information on our Class Schedule and our Professors.
We also encourage you to visit our complimentary CMP 101 session before the reception on Wednesday: CMP 101, presented by Jodi Goldbeck, CMP, this month will teach us about Risk Management and Stakeholder Management which will prep you for taking the CMP exam.
We look forward to seeing you all at MPI-WI University!
