The MLA Business Office is managed by A-R Editions, and operates under the direction of MLA’s Executive Secretary/Treasurer. A list of the primary services handled by the Business Office is listed in the following table, which also includes information about some of the specific elements involved. The Business Office manages and continually updates a database that contains membership and subscriber information, as well as details regarding convention registrations, claims, and other information. Related services like the Music Cataloging Bulletin (MCB) are part of the database.
The Business Office has worked with MLA to develop and implement procedures for specific activities. This is critical for all functions, including the renewal mailings, the convention mailing, convention registration, updating the activities roster—essentially, everything the Business Office does in support of MLA and its membership. The Business Office reviews the procedures regularly with those involved. In addition, the MLA Board has its June meeting at A-R Editions’ office in Middleton, Wisconsin, so that it can meet those involved and discuss the work of the Business Office.
