About Us
Based in Albany, New York, the Northeastern New York Chapter of MPI serves south from the Catskills of New York, north to the Canadian border, and east to the Berkshires of Massachusetts and the Green Mountains of Vermont, and west to Syracuse, New York.

Throughout the year we offer many opportunities for members to learn, share industry experiences and network with others. Our membership is comprised of association, corporate, independent meeting planners, special event planners, hoteliers (both on the local and national level), caterers, photographers, event decoration companies and other local suppliers.

We have grown to approximately 150 members with many volunteering their services on behalf of the chapter. We average approximately 50-60 attendees at our monthly educational programs (6 per year) and more than 100 participants at our special events such as the annual Fall Focus or MPI Open.
