After Six Mix @ Deweys Pub
Mar 28 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm
After Six Mix @ Deweys Pub | New York | NY | United States

After Six Mix is designed as a happy hour style experience. It is not structured, has no fee, no requirements. It is about relaxed interaction with fellow members. Bring your co-workers and friends, interact with like-minded professionals.

Our hosts will be offering extended happy hour drink pricing, light appetizers and an exclusive space for us to mingle.

These days, everyone knows how influential Social Networking can be to their business endeavors but MPIGNY is going old school, we’re going back to networking socially.

We are throwing it back to the live interaction days. Unplug. Put the constantly needy phone and email out of mind for an hour or so and enjoy. You’ll still be doing, talking, connecting but just minus the apparatus.

We are pleased to announce that Joanne Dennison will be hosting her Intensive Two Day, CMP Class

Learn how to be better at what you do — and further your career

Joanne is an educator. Because of that the first and foremost purpose of the class is about learning to be a better professional in the meeting and events industry (planner or supplier), and applying it when you go to work the next day. Yes, people have even taken the class who were not sitting for the exam just for the learning experience!

For many attendees it is also about “getting” a grasp on the material in a strategic, situational and conceptual way to pass the CMP exam. The exam is no longer about memorization. It is about thinking, planning and acting strategically. The questions are no longer definition based, but situation based (“You are at your meeting and….”). The topics that are covered are emphasized according to importance and relevancy to the CMP-International Standards and the proportion to how they are used in the exam. There is also a “Pay Once, Take Twice” policy where you can come the first time to get you on your way for preparing, and then a second time closer to when you take the exam.

Earn Contact Hours for the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) Application or Recertification

The cost is $550 for non members and $500 for MPI Members

For registration and information, please email Joanne directly:
