Every WMPMI member, sponsor, and volunteer's safety, comfort, and well-being are of the highest importance. Because of this, the WMPMI board has made the decision to move all events - Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner meetings as well as the Professional Development Day (PDD) on October 13th - to the virtual environment for the remainder of the year 2020. If you have a question, please contact us.
