The Lois K. Hauser Service Award is an honor bestowed on one of our most dedicated chapter members, in her memory. Lois was a warm, charismatic and committed member of our Chapter, and the Southern California meetings industry. She was the MPISCC Planner of the Year, 1998-1999, and was honored with the Past Presidents Award in 2005-2006. Over the years, Lois was a very active committee member and also served on the MPISCC Board of Directors. While enjoying her time on the Board of Directors, her true love was Committee work

This award aims to recognize an “unsung hero” of the chapter.
