Community Talkabouts

Westfield on Weekends Community Talkabouts is a series of programs/events that create opportunities for community members to come together to talk about important topics in our city.

Past topics have included a "Lunch and Learn" with the Chamber of Commerce that focused on "Creating a welcoming environment in your business, organization or program" and meetings about the City-University Collaboration possibilities. If you have a suggestion or would like to host a discussion, please contact our office.

Update regarding "City-University Collaboration":

This past summer and then again on October 19, 2022, under the leadership of Westfield State President, Dr. Linda Thompson and City of Westfield Mayor Mike McCabe, 70+ community members gathered to talk about "City-University Collaboration". Using a survey completed by interested community members, the focus of this meeting was to talk about ways to connect, collaborate and create opportunities for the City and the University to work together to benefit everyone. The successful follow-up meeting heard from new voices including students at Westfield State. We look forward to working together as we move this project forward.
