LMTA Events

"LMTA does events right! We have fun. We learn. We network. When you leave one of our events, you'll know you got something out of it. I would tell every new member to attend everything they can, because the other side of the LMTA events is that they always offer you the opportunity to meet the real people behind our regulatory community."
