After Five Committee Chair

Elizabeth Brazil Independent Planner, ERB Events

What do you love about MPI? 

I am fortunate to have made wonderful connections both personally and professionally. Some of my best clients and cherished friendships began with networking through MPISCC.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself! 

I am a bit of an adventure hound. I love white water rafting (class 4) among other things. And this past year I was able to achieve a 30+ year bucket list dream, through an auction item I bought at an MPISCC annual fundraiser. I was able to try my hand at Olympic bobsledding in Park City, UT with 1996 Olympic Silver Medalist Shauna Rohbock piloting the sled — twice!  It was excellent!

What do you love about MPI?

I love MPI, and specifically our chapter, because of the amazing educational and networking opportunities. At any given event I can sit at a table with individuals who have over 100+ years of combined experience in the meeting planning industry.
