In response to the pandemic stay-at-home orders impacting most of our members, we launched the Lockdown Lunch & Learn (3L) in April 2020. Two years later, in the midst of our country opening back up to the post-pandemic environment, we ended this program at the 100th episode mark.

It was a weekly virtual discussion, same time and same place each week, led by experts across our community. Interaction encouraged. This service of the MCPA was open to MCPA members and invited guests only, and much continuing professional education (CPE) credit was earned. We thank Lockheed Martin for sponsoring this program!
