The Meeting Professionals International WestField Chapter (MPIWC) was founded in 1989 when it was thought that there needed to be an educational and networking source to directly serve meeting professionals, both planners and suppliers, in Westchester, NY and Fairfield, CT counties.  MPI was that source.

With a large base of planner members in our chapter such as Pfizer, Bayer, Deloitte and Pepsi (to name only a few), we bring a vast array of meeting planning professionals to the table.  But not to be ignored are the equally powerful supplier members we have such as Dolce International, Marriott International, Disney, Sonesta Hotels & Resorts and Starwood Hotels & Resorts.

Our success in building and maintaining an exceptionally close-knit and effective community is evidenced by WestField being awarded the 2006-2007 MPI Chapter of the Year (COTY) Award in the "Small--Under 250 Member" category.  We have received accolades for our contributions to the MPI Foundation.
