Build your professional network. Sign up for MLA’s Virtual Colleague Connection!

Organized by MLA’s Membership Committee, Colleague Connection is a mentoring program pairing new members with experienced members or fellow new colleagues.


If you are a new member, connect with an experienced colleague or a fellow newbie. If you are an experienced member, with decades of experience or just a few, you also benefit by helping a new colleague navigate a new organization and profession while expanding your professional network. 

The virtual program runs from October to January. Pairs are encouraged to meet at their convenience at least once a month. 

Key dates:

  • To ensure a connection, please sign up by Friday, September 17th!
  • Participants will learn of their pairing by October 1.
  • An introductory gathering will be held October 8. 

If you have any questions regarding Colleague Connection, please contact MLA Membership Committee Chair Nell Aronoff or Chair-Designate Tim Kenny.

Don’t miss this opportunity!
