To My MPI Tennessee Family:


It is no secret that COVID-19 is redefining our understanding of normal, and MPI Tennessee and our Board of Directors tried to keep some normalcy for us as long as we could. However, in the wake of the recommendation from the CDC for no more than 50 people to gather in one place at one time, we have officially decided to postpone our March Education Luncheon with Maneet Chauhan, as well as both MIX events in Knoxville and Nashville next week. If you have already registered for these events you should see a refund to your method of purchase which can take up to 14 business days to process. If you have any questions or concerns about this process please reach out to Please watch for more communications about other upcoming MPI Tennessee events.

We recognize many of our members are being impacted by this pandemic. As soon as we are able to meet again, we will gather for in-person support and encouragement. MPI Tennessee is setting up a private Facebook page for our members to virtually lean on each other as much as possible during this time, and we will continue this effort even after our industry returns to normal operations. In the next day you will see this come to life, so please join us if you are interested.

For more information on COVID-19 and the meetings industry, please visit where there is new information coming rapidly. 

As your current MPI Tennessee President, my door is always open. If you or someone you know needs me, please don’t hesitate to reach out. “MPI is a heart thing, not a head thing”, and I think we will see that now more than ever. 

With all my love,

Shannon Jones
