Curbside Conversations

Curbside Conversations is a resource available exclusively to MPS members.  It facilitates member connections related to specific practice areas.  Members with in-depth knowledge have informal chats with other MPS members seeking information. The discussions are not formal consultations, but rather a collegial resource offered voluntarily to others in the MPS community.
