Small/Mid-sized Sponsor Community of Practice Group

In response to feedback about the unique needs of smaller sponsors, the MCC formed the Small Sponsor Community of Practice Group. Meetings will take place every other month. The purpose of this new group is to provide members with the opportunity to:
