Take Full Advantage of Your MHI Membership by Joining a Community

By Mary Alyson Ammons, Membership Coordinator at MHI

It’s finally January and if you’re like most, then you’re more than ready to leave 2020 behind and start fresh! MHI is here to help make 2021 your year by providing new opportunities to grow professionally and expand your network through our two communities: YPN for young professionals and Mpro for marketing professionals.


The Young Professionals Network (YPN) is geared towards professionals under the age of 40 but is open for everyone to join and is a great way to expand your network within the material handling and supply chain industry.

With an eye on networking, YPN is launching a new monthly series called YPN Coffee Chats. The virtual sessions will be an opportunity for young professionals foster new relationships while discussing a different topic each month. January’s session will be focused on adapting to remote work and registration is open now!

YPN Coffee Chat
Wednesday, Jan. 13 I 11:00am EST

To help continue the conversation between Coffee Chats, YPN members are invited to download the new My MHI mobile app in the App Store (link) or Google Play (link) to have access to exclusive content for members.

To learn more, contact Mary Alyson Ammons.


Relaunched in 2020, Mpro is a community of marketing professionals from within the MHI membership that is focused on marketing education, idea sharing, networking, strengthening the voice of the industry and, ultimately, increasing awareness of MHI.

Mpro hosts quarterly webinars to help you sharpen your marketing skills.  While the 2021 schedule is being finalized, be sure to check out the recordings for last year’s sessions on storytelling:
