Colleague Connection is MLA’s mentoring program pairing new or first-time meeting attendees with experienced members at the annual meeting. Those who sign-up by April 10 will be assigned a mentor or mentee before the meeting. Most pairs will be assigned by April 25to allow plenty of time to contact your mentor/mentee in advance. Once assigned, each pair will be responsible for arranging times to meet at MLA ’19.

If you are a new member or first-time meeting attendee, pair up with an experienced colleague at the meeting in Chicago! Colleague Connection provides an opportunity to learn more about the meeting, maximize your time, meet new colleagues, build professional networks, and learn about the profession.

If you are a returning member, as a mentor, you also benefit from Colleague Connection, whether you have decades of experience or only a few years. Mentoring a colleague during the meeting will expand your professional network and expose you to new perspectives. Most importantly, you have the opportunity to help someone navigate a new organization and profession.

Contacts made through Colleague Connection can lead to ongoing friendships and expand professional contacts.

Don’t miss this opportunity! Mentees and mentors can register online<https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2019coco>.
