MPISCC Cares – Help those impacted by the Southern California Fires
Many friends and colleagues have been impacted by the recent fires. Our fellow chapter members are counting on your support. If you’d like to offer a donation, please visit the Red Cross Thomas Fire Fund or United Way

MPISCC will continue to support these regions. Many business are open and these destinations continue to be an ideal setting for your meetings and conventions. If there's anything our chapter can do for you at this time, please contact our MPISCC office at 213-210-2520. Thank you!
