Read about I Am MLA Ambassador Ellen M. Aaronson, AHIP
The Southern Chapter of MLA (SCMLA) held its 70th annual meeting in virtual format from November 16–20, 2020. Our meeting was originally scheduled to be held live in Montgomery, AL, in October, 2020, but because of COVID-19 concerns, the Program Committee decided to change to an online conference.
In 2020, MLA and MLA caucuses and chapters issued statements on important social and political issues in response to significant events. MLA also issued its customary statements and positions on information issues and policies directly related to MLA’s mission in health information.
As the looming threat of the pandemic remained constant into the summer of 2020, the South Central Chapter (SCC/MLA) Executive Board was faced with a harsh reality: an in-person conference would be impossible. Plans had to be made to convert the meeting to a virtual platform.
The 2020 Joint Chapter Meeting of the Midcontinental (MCMLA) and Midwest Chapters was held on October 14–16 using Zoom, with a total of 249 registered participants and a registration fee of $25 per attendee. The conference website is hosted on the Midwest Chapter’s web space.
