Kevin Jackson Wins MPI Rising Star Award

Kevin joined the MPI North Florida Chapter in September 2021 shortly after joining the OPWD team. Kevin has been involved in the chapter volunteering on different committees for communications and special events for the past 2 years and will start a new role as Director of Special Events on July 1st for a year term on the 2023-2024 MPI North Florida Board of Directors.

On the June 22nd Board Installation and Member Awards Gala that took place at the Sheraton Jacksonville, Kevin was nominated and won the Rising Star Award for 2022-2023. The Rising Star Award is awarded to an up and coming leader who does not currently serve on the Board of Directors and this award recognizes an emerging leader that has made significant contributions to the MPI North Florida Chapter over the last 12 months and demonstrates the qualities of a future Chapter leader.

The Conference Team is very proud of Kevin for this well deserved award and looks forward to Kevin joining the Board of Directors next week! Founded in 1994, MPI North Florida is the leader in the region for education, development and networking for the meeting professional.
