"In 2006, my boss encouraged me to apply for my CMP. The first thing I did was to join MPI Texas Hill Country Chapter and then apply with CIC for my CMP and started attending the THCC study groups. Boy was I amazed!!?? I quickly became involved with the chapter by joining the Membership Committee, and met new friends from the CMP study group, all of which I still reach out to with questions that come up regarding meetings! I enjoy being a part of the MPI THCC chapter as it continues to provide a wealth of information and networking opportunities."
