Changes to Child Care for the 2009 Convention
Faced with rising costs and limited interest from members, the MLA will not offer on-site child care at the 2009 convention. MLA members in need of child care during the convention should make arrangements directly through one of the convention hotels.
The MLA has funds available to reimburse up to $200 each to members who use a hotel-recommended service for child care during convention hours. If more requests are received than can be reimbursed with available funds, preference will be given to graduate students and members in lower-income dues categories.
Members should submit a request for reimbursement, along with a receipt for child care from one of the hotel-recommended services. Requests should be sent no later than 9 January 2010 to Maribeth Kraus, Director of Convention Programs.
