MPISSN Events Overview
Monthly MPI-Sacramento/Sierra Nevada luncheon meetings are held the third Tuesday of each month at various properties which have an MPI-Sacramento/Sierra Nevada member on staff. The luncheons begin at 11:00 AM for registration and networking. Lunch is served at noon, with the program starting shortly thereafter. The meetings generally conclude by 1:45 PM. Please contact MPI-Sacramento/Sierra Nevada’s office at (916) 509-7270 (or click on one fo the two links below) for information on upcoming luncheon meetings or other networking events.
Table Top Displays
MPI-Sacramento/Sierra Nevada provides a table at the regular monthly luncheon meetings for use by meeting sponsors to display materials about their organization and service. Sponsorship and display arrangements are made by MPI staff prior to the sponsored meeting.
Cancellation notice of attendance at a monthly meeting must be received by MPI-Sacramento/Sierra Nevada’s office at least three (3) working days prior to the meeting. MPI-Sacramento/Sierra Nevada members may elect to receive a refund (see refund policy below) or may receive credit toward the next meeting.
No Show Policy
No refunds are given for pre-paid members or guests who fail to cancel within the prescribed time and do not attend the monthly meeting.
Non-members may attend three monthly luncheons but must join MPI-Sacramento/Sierra Nevada prior to attending subsequent meetings.
Replacement for Pre-Paid Member Registrant
If a MPI-Sacramento/Sierra Nevada member prepays for and is unable to attend a monthly meeting, a replacement from the same organization may attend. If the replacement is not a MPI-Sacramento/Sierra Nevada member, the difference in fee must be paid. If payment cannot be made at the time of the meeting, invoicing may be arranged.
Definition for the term Pre-Paid Registrant
A pre-paid registrant is a member or guest who has notified MPI-Sacramento/Sierra Nevada of attendance at an event and has provided the MPI office with the fee for the event before the announced cut-off date stated in the advertisement for the event.
The following constitutes MPI-Sacramento/Sierra Nevada’s policy on refunds for programs, workshops and special events, other than monthly luncheon programs.
Refunds will be made when cancellations are received a minimum of three days prior to the event.
A ten dollar ($10.00) handling charge will be deducted from all refunds.
Refund policy items #1 and #2 above must be stated on all registration forms for all events of this type.
All MPI-Sacramento/Sierra Nevada members and guests (Planners and Suppliers) are eligible to participate in all raffles and/or drawings conducted during any MPI-Sacramento/Sierra Nevada meeting or event unless such participation is prohibited by law.
Distribution of Material
The only materials distributed to participants at MPI-Sacramento/Sierra Nevada events will be materials related to MPI sponsored events or projects. Literature from a sponsor may be included as part of the donated centerpieces. Others who wish to distribute information at tables or on chairs at meetings will instead be encouraged to advertise in the newsletter, advertise on this website or purchase mailing labels from the chapter. This policy does not preclude the dissemination of materials to members during the networking period of an event.
Special Workshops and Other Educational Programs
Special workshops and other education programs may be held in conjunction with a monthly luncheon meeting or on a separate date.
