Question 1: Why should I join LACMC?
A: Being part of LACMC provides its members with opportunities for enhanced communication with all levels of management, both within and between departments.

Question 3: What are my monthly dues used for?
A: Monthly dues are applied to offset the costs associated with the monthly educational seminars, training, and conferences.
Question 4: If I am already paying monthly dues, why do I have to pay to participate in LACMC events?
