BrookfieldConfCtrThe MPI-WI awards gala is always a special time for our members to come together and not only celebrate the accomplishments of a few but also the  accomplishments of our industry.  Now more than ever, during these compelling times we look forward to seeing our industry partners, to celebrate and to start the process of bringing our industry back.

This year's gala will be held on Wednesday, October 7 at the brand new state of the art Brookfield Conference Center.  A building designed by Kahler Slater and built by the City of Brookfield and is the centerpiece for holding your next big event in an amazing city with so much to offer.

This year's theme is the Kentucky Derby, so ladies put on your best hat and gentlemen put on your bow-ties as we raise fund to help support this amazing chapter, celebrate and move us forward!

tomgraybillThis year we celebrate Tom Graybill as our 2020 MPI Wisconsin Hall of Fame recipient!   

Since his membership with MPI Wisconsin began in 2008, Tom Graybill has made an indelible mark on our chapter through his volunteerism and leadership. After 3 years of committee volunteerism, Tom took his first board role in 2011 and became Chapter President in 2014.  In addition to being a host or co-host for four Awards Galas, he has also been behind the scenes lending his talents and expertise to its production.  During his board leadership he brought the chapter into the age of social media establishing our first presence on multiple platforms.  Tom served as VP of Finance when the chapter took the bold step of introducing the Strategic Partner Program; a program that changed how our chapter funded itself and provided value to our Supplier Partners.   Maybe most impressive has been Tom's commitment to our chapter after leaving the board in 2016. He didn't fade away and kept his volunteerism and commitment to our profession strong every year since.  Please join us as we celebrate Tom and all our volunteers on this special night!


This year we will do our usual auction but in a manner for contact less bidding and online too for our virtual attendees!  Details to come!
