The first in-person annual conference in two years is nearly here! If you are heading to New Orleans this May, consider signing up as either a mentor or mentee for this year’s Colleague Connection. As mentors, whether you have decades of experience or only a few years, mentoring a colleague during the conference expands your professional network, exposes you to new perspectives, and helps someone navigate a new organization and profession. If you are a new MLA member or if MLA ’22 will be your first in-person MLA meeting, sign up to learn how to get the most out of the annual conference, meet new colleagues, and build professional networks. Mentor/mentee pairs will receive an invitation to attend the New Members/First-Time Attendees breakfast on May 4, 2022, at the New Orleans Convention Center.
Be sure to sign up by Friday April 15, 2022. Note that this program is separate from the virtual Colleague Connection program that took place October through January. If you have any questions, please contact Nell Aronoff, chair of the MLA Membership Committee.
