Message From Your Board of Directors


Pia Carpenter

Dear MPI WestField Member,

1, 2, 3…..Breath in Breath out

Never in our lifetime did we think the world would change so much and our Industry would be so affected in what feels like a blink of an eye.  Last week seems like a dream and today we are in our new reality.

First and foremost, we are a community and here for you and each other, we are strong and able to keep connected as we have on our MPI WestField LinkedIn Page a Private Member Chat group to share insights, updates, check-ins, and virtual hugs!

We are keeping current through our Social Media platforms of LinkedIn and Facebook Page with a Big Shout out and special Thank you to Elaine Leies for keeping this information possible and will continue to support our Members by providing information on the Chapter and MPI Global and Industry news to help support us through these unknowns.

What do we know… Your Board had a meeting today and the following was discussed and we want to be transparent and share with you…

*Postponed March 10th will be a Virtual Meeting – will take place in the coming weeks and more information will be provided once we have finalized the details.

*Networking Exchange has been postponed and will be our first Social Event to create Business opportunities and see each other again live and in person – once we feel we have passed this and none of our members would be in harm’s way we will post the details.

*MeetNow April 16th will be Postponed and will be revamped and once details are confirmed will be advised…looking to have it as kick-off in the fall.

*Joint Social Event with MPIGNY has been postponed, once new dates selected will advise.

*Annual Spring Fundraiser with our Chapter Awards Event – we are discussing if this should become a late Summer Event – again we are working through this and will share once we have supportive information and decisions that maintain the safety of our Members.

Your Board works so hard to put these events together and we want to give BIG KUDOS for all their hard work and dedication to them and their teams…THANK YOU….Deana Nelson, Daniel Aucar, Samantha Roccapriore, and Jonathan Lese.

Soon you will be receiving our Slate for the incoming Board of 2020-2021 and we want to Thank Mozelle Goodwin and the Nominating Committee for their relentlessness and time in making this possible!  We are excited and also thank the members who stepped up to the Challenge in being our Chapter’s Future Leaders….we continue strong.

Show me the Money…..he makes us conscious that during these challenging times we will still deliver our excellence and expertise to our Chapter while being prudent in our spending….Thank you Greg Rolenz for keeping us in balance.

On a positive, THANK YOU….MPI WESTFIELD MEMBERS who completed the MPI Global Survey we met and completed our Goal required and as shared this gives us points that in turn give us funds to reinvest in our Members of the Chapter and our Local Hospitality Community.  We also want to take the time to Thank Sharon O’Leary and her team for being your Voice as they share what Membership wants and they continue to speak out on each of our Members.

Together we are one….a simple thought….During the Plague many years ago, Sir Isaac Newton was forced to stay home and during that time he discovered Gravity….can you imagine what we can create for the Meetings Industry while we are home these next few weeks…..endless possibilities!


Stay Safe and Be Well from your MPI WestField Board of Directors,

Pia, Mozelle, Greg, Deana, Sharon, Sam, Jon and Daniel
