Meeting Planners International Texas Hill Country Chapter Appoints Experience Bryan College Station Employee as Board Member


BRYAN COLLEGE STATION, TX – During the recent board member elections hosted in Bryan College Station, the Meeting Planners International (MPI) Texas Hill Country Chapter appointed Experience Bryan College Station’s Sophie Curtis as the Director of Leadership Development.

Curtis currently serves as the Director of Conventions for Experience Bryan College Station and has been in the position for five years. Her membership with MPI began in 2015.

With Experience Bryan College Station being an annual sponsor for the MPI Texas Hill Country Chapter, Curtis has had many opportunities to work with MPI and its members, resulting in her campaign to run as a board member herself.

“I have volunteered at several events for MPI in the past, but have always wanted to get more involved with this organization,” Curtis said.

As the Director of Leadership Development, Curtis will play a crucial role in helping current members acquire stronger leadership positions within the chapter.

“The idea of this position is to help current members take on bigger responsibility within the chapter, whether that’s in committee involvement, volunteering for outreach programs, or volunteering at chapter events,” Curtis said. “We want all of our members to eventually develop into future chapter leaders and board members.”

Curtis will also assist in the planning and implementation of chapter meetings, networking and educational chapter events, the annual Global Meetings Industry Day, annual awards banquet, and the Texas Education Conference.
