After significant discussion and input from related stakeholders, the LMCA Board of Directors has decided to cancel the 2020 LMCA / TMCA joint annual meeting scheduled for December 7 - 10, 2020 at the Lake Charles L'auberge Casino. Given the uncertainties associated with the COVID - 19 pandemic, our collective expertise concluded it is necessary and prudent to take this action. At our core, LMCA members are public health professionals dedicated to preventing and minimizing risks not only to ourselves, but most importantly the public. We are disappointed for our membership, so we are hard at work to develop a "virtual" solution to present our agenda to meet the requirements for LDAF re-certification. Please stay tuned to this website regarding dates and participation.
