Managed Print Services Association Sponsors Special Workshop for MPS Professionals

Whatever happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, except for the valuable information you learn about the MPS business!

Managed Print Services Association Sponsors Special Workshop for MPS Professionals

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

The Managed Print Services Association (MPSA) will sponsor the first small group MPS workshop January 16, 2012 in Las Vegas. This unique gathering follows the intimate format successfully used by the "no rules MPS" peer group meetings in 2011. Participants praised these previous workshops for their open forums and fresh, honest discussions. Now, through the sponsorship of the MPSA, the next workshop will be open to any active MPS professional with two or more years of experience and who engages with end-user clients on a daily basis.

Registration is free for members of the MPSA, "no rules MPS" and LeopardONE, and $149.00 per person for non-members.

Small Groups Allow More Personal Interaction

Networking is a powerful way to learn more about any craft, and this intimate workshop setting takes that interaction to a new level. The workshop is a true small group experience. The venue focuses on content, substance and discussion, without the distractions and scheduling commitments of a larger professional conference.

"The small group workshop format of the previous no rules MPS workshops received very positive feedback from attendees. Now MPSA is making this discussion-focused, peer-to-peer experience available to a broader community of MPS professionals. Participants are encouraged to 'come as they are' for a relaxed interactive, but intense experience," said MPSA President, Joe Barganier.

Based on Groups of 12

Each group will have 12 participants and an assigned leader who facilitates open discussions on pertinent topics chosen by attendees in advance of the event. The leader will summarize the best practices from the individual groups to be shared later with all participants and the MPSA membership.

Participation is limited to the first 120 qualified professionals, and all attendees must participate in the group sessions. There will be a maximum of eight one-hour sessions, each covering a separate topic. Beverages and light lunch will be provided. 

Requests to participate can be sent to Joe Barganier at buckeyefenn@att.net

  1. Thank you for the post. We are trying to expand the involvement of the day-to-day MPS professional by providing them just one way to network with their peers. I have found these small peer group workshops helpful. You always come away with a few good nuggets of wisdom.
