Mark your calendar for the 51st Annual Meeting of the MPA in February 2019. Get your call schedule organized and plan some time away in New Orleans, LA. Circle the dates of February 14-17th, 2019. The LPMA/MPA planning committee is hard at work to bring you a meeting with enough CME hours to meet the full yearly requirement. How does Valentine’s Day and kicking off the Mardi Gras season in New Orleans sound? You can take advantage of the 26 full hours offered or as few CME hours as you need. Pricing will vary for the entire meeting and both daily rates and weekend rates will be available. The meeting will include the LA Council of Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists and the Mississippi Chapter. Call 504-941-9191 now to make your reservation at the ACE Hotel early. Be sure to mention the code: 0902LPMAMTG. (Tentative Schedule below)
