2021 MLA Conference

Updated Conference at a Glance (9/29/2021).

Attend virtual 2021 Committee and Community of Interest Annual Meetings before and after the conference (these are open to current members or those interested in joining!)

This year’s MLA conference will be held in person at the Doubletree Hilton in Chesterfield (STL metro) from 9/29-9/30. While it has been shortened from to 2 days, we still have all the activities you’ve come to expect and enjoy and truly hope you’ll join us and have a great experience.

Just to get you a little excited:

Session Descriptions are now available!

For those of you who will be in the area on Tuesday night, the Bohley Trivia Night will be held at the hotel.

On Wednesday afternoon Chris Pryor will give the opening Keynote and the exhibits will open at 4pm with a reception followed by the Awards Ceremony to be held this year in the exhibits hall where everyone can stay and celebrate the best of the best in Missouri.

On Thursday there will be a Member Meet and Greet followed by the Annual Meeting followed by a closing reception with Keynote speaker Jarret Krosoczka joining us virtually.

We’ve come through a rough year and while it’s not all over yet, we hope this conference can be time to come together, see old friends and colleagues, make new ones and learn from each other.

We look forward to seeing and learning something from each of you.
