    Dear Industry Colleagues & Friends-

    On behalf of the MPI Philadelphia Chapter Board of Directors, we have decided to postpone our September 12th program due to Hurricane Irma.

    Our speaker is unable to travel from Florida and is in the process of evacuating. Our thoughts and prayers are with our Florida colleagues and friends.

    We apologize if this caused any inconveniences. We look forward to seeing everyone at our next monthly event on October 17th!

    Warm Regards,

    Laila Ea, CMP, HMCC
    President of MPI Philadelphia Chapter
