Welcome to Meeting Professionals International Southern California Chapter

Dear MPISCC Members:

It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our MPISCC President, Beverly Laing.

Beverly lost her courageous battle with cancer on Friday, November 28th. She was surrounded by her loving husband, Jim and her daughter, Tina and son, Jim Jr.

Bev was a deeply committed person who not only brought her infectious laugh and positive attitude to those around her, but also brought love and friendship to everyone she knew. She remained very optimistic even in the toughest times and truly believed that she would conquer her illness.

Bev has been a leader of MPISCC in multiple roles since 2002 and most currently as MPISCC President. Her compassion and determination for our chapter and industry will remain with us for many years to come.

“The only greater passion that Beverly had in life besides her beloved MPI, were her children, grandchildren and husband Jim.”

Bev will be sorely missed by all her loved ones, friends and by those she touched in the MPI community. She made us all a better person in one way or another to have known her.

A celebration of her beautiful life will be announced in the future.

We will be sending out notice shortly of an online location for all of us who knew her to post pictures, stories and memories. Please stay tuned for more information.

Services are being held in New Jersey this Friday 12/5/14. If you are interested in more details, please contact the MPISCC office at (805) 449-9111 or dhawkins@mpiscc.org.
