Applications Suspended for New Divisions, Discussion Groups, and Allied Organizations
As part of its continuing efforts to make the MLA Annual Convention more responsive to members' needs, the MLA Executive Council has begun the process of examining the division, discussion group, and allied organization structures. MLA Second Vice President Marianne Hirsch has agreed to convene a small group of members who will study the current structures and make recommendations to the council on how to proceed. The council will then solicit comments from the full membership.
While this study is taking place, over approximately two years, the council will not accept applications for division, discussion group, and allied organization status. Applications submitted before 1 May 2011 will be considered.
