Hello MAPC Community!
On April 12th we are holding an event to celebrate our program's 20th Anniversary!
We are planning a series of events throughout the day that we hope will be intriguing, interesting and useful to everyone affiliated with MAPC. We also hope this event will allow our alumni to catch up with one another, share their knowledge, meet current students, and simply return to MAPC for a day.
We have several alumni presenters lined up to speak throughout the day where both students and alumni will have chances to learn from each other and network with others from the program. A schedule of the event is listed below with a description of the different activities and a list of presenters. More presenters are being added so check back as the event gets closer!
We hope you will consider attending our 20th Anniversary Celebration!!
