MPA’s 30 annual events range in size from 20 to 400 attendees allowing members to network with a diverse group of individuals and leaders most important to business and individuals. Social relationships are the foundations of mutual trust which develops into partnerships. These partnerships allow for cooperative projects and communication, furthering the goals of each individual. Networking keeps you on the forefront of people’s minds. If people don’t see you, they forget about you. Our meetings and events are well attended by an impressive group of people including elected officials, local governmental management and community leaders specifically in the real estate and land use industry.
