In addition to being TN’s Immediate Past President, Melanie has been selected to serve on the Meeting Professionals International RISE Awards Judging Panel for 2015.


THE MPI RISE Awards is an annual program established to recognize individuals, communities and organizations that are improving the meetings and events industry.  There are seven awards in the program rewarding volunteerism, innovation, commitment to the industry and transferability of practices across boundaries.  The awards are a vehicle for peers to recognize the work and accomplishments of others, and also provide an opportunity to promote the importance of meetings and events as a mechanism to drive business results.


MPI Tennessee Chapter won the 2012 RISE Award for Community Achievement in Knowledge and Ideas for the “Let MPI Rock Your World Road Trip”.
