Have you been to the MLA conference in the past? If you’re planning on going this year, please consider being a mentor to a first-time attendee. It’s easy! At the conference, show them around and introduce them to other MLA members. This way, those new to the conference won’t be left wandering (or eating lunch) alone.
Interested? Just contact Natalie Burclaff at firstname.lastname@example.org. She’ll send you the name and email address of a new attendee who has requested a mentor, and you can contact them to introduce yourself, arrange a place to meet at the conference and see if they have questions ahead of time.
