Evening Membership Meetings: 

Once a month, the LSPA holds an evening membership meeting. These meetings are popular networking and educational events, regularly attended by over 100 members and non-members. An hour of socializing, with a complimentary buffet dinner, is followed by an hour presentation from invited guest speakers on a broad range of topics. Typically 1 technical or regulatory credit is offered.

LSPA meetings are not space limited, however they do require advance registration. LSPA members receive discounted registration rates. 

Information on sponsoring a membership meeting is available here.
