As part of MLP's ongoing mission to conserve scarce resources, the association is reducing paper consumption and increasing our emphasis on electronic communication. The more members utilize this site and MLP's online renewal & registration options, the more resources we save. As stewards of the environment, it only makes sense. Get on board and GO GREENER!

We are aware that the MCLP Study Guide is currently offline.  We are working with our software partner to fix the problem as quickly as possible.

Upcoming Events

It was great to see so many members at lthe final dinner meeting of the season on April 16.  Special thanks to Pioneer Valley Fiberglass Pools' for their sponsorship and great product display.  Jessica Boldt's handout will be made available in the RESOURCES section of the website.

Stay tuned for details about MLP's Landscape Demo Day planned for Tuesday September 17th! 

We hope you all enjoy a productive spring and summer season!
