Only a month and a half after it was formed, the search committee to find the next president and CEO of Meeting Professionals International has disbanded. The decision was made after it was discovered that confidential information about the search had been leaked to the public.

A new committee will be formed, and the timeline to find a replacement for outgoing president Edwin L. Griffin will remain the same. Terri Breining, MPI’s 2002-03 chair-elect, will continue to chair the committee with executive search firm Heidrick & Struggles, Los Angeles, managing and administering the process.
