SIGs are a LACPA member benefit. With the exception of March and April, where non-members are welcome to attend SIGs, clubs and networking groups, we ask that current members only attend these session and do not share the meeting information with others. 

Please note that LACPA Board Members, Leaders, and Committee Chairs will never contact you to request money or gift cards.
Kindly report any suspicious emails or texts as spam or phishing.
