7PM. We hope you will consider along with your ticket purchase a
sponsorship of this reimagined event.
This will be the first time since 2019 that the MCDP has gathered for this
spring event. This year, we have rebranded this gathering to include

our party will be on the best footing to help coordinate resources, training,
