    • 3 sessions
    • Anywhere & Everywhere via Zoom


    Three events.

    Three opportunities to celebrate and connect.

    Three chances to create moments and memories.

    This year our celebrations will be completely virtual but just as focused on connection and application. And, with three opportunities to connect and no travel stress, we are hoping to have the largest participation at a fete than ever before. 

    Save the date for all three of our OKTOBERFETE events:

    Meet MAPP-15 Sunday, 11 October 4-5:30pm EST - it's time to welcome our new alums into our association and get to know the new MAPPsters joining the family. After a meet and greet we will jump into breakout rooms based on location so MAPP-15 can connect with local alumni in their city and region. 

    Positive Psychology PechaKucha & Live Q&A Saturday, 17 October 2-2:45pm EST - learn how alumni are applying positive psychology personally and professionally with short, pre-recorded videos following the PechaKucha model. Watch presentations at your leisure and tune in to engage with the presenters at the live Q&A session. And the best part? All alumni are welcome to submit presentations; be on the look-out for submission call coming out soon.

    Cocktail Party, Friday 23 October 7-8:30pm EST - greet, engage, connect and enjoy! Three 20 minute breakout sessions - MAPP class (reunion time!), interest (business, education, academia, media/entertainment, etc.), and randomized (just to shake it up a bit). And the best part? You'll be greeted with 15 minutes of party and DJ'd music at the opening and closing of the event so bring your dance moves. With private and public group chats the connection opportunities are endless :)

    We hope you opt-in for OKTOBERFETE and register today - it's only $25 for all recordings and live events...but, just wait, for dues-paying members it's only $20 and for our new MAPP.15 friends it's FREE (registration code to follow via separate email)!  

    Cheers to you, cheers to connection, & cheers to OKTOBERFETE,

    ~ Fete 2020 Committee

    P.S. Fete & Summit are separate events so each requires its own registration...we'll provide the link for Summit here when it goes live (in addition to emails you will receive)!

    Wait, we have one more sizzling tid-bit of information for you!


    All Oktoberfete attendees will receive a sponsorship pamphlet with their Oktoberfete welcome packet when they get the link to the P3 (Positive Psychology PechaKucha) pre-recorded presentations.

    Sponsorship packages are a great deal this year: $30 for a quarter page ad, $55 for a half page, and $100 for a full page of content. You create the content, we add it into the welcome packet!

    Sign-up to sponsor by 10 September and send us your content and ad by 15 September - it's simple and quick. 

    Questions? Email danielle.mapp14@gmail.com and christina.cheuk@gmail.com

    P.S. Friends, just another way to look at it...sponsorship is a 2-for-1 really...we get to savor your fantastic work and exciting endeavors while you get that warm & fuzzy goodness of helping the MAPP Alumni Association. What's more MAPP than that?
