VII.D. SOME PRACTICES FOLLOWED BY VARIOUS CHAPTERS
The frequency and length of meetings are decided locally and are determined by such considerations as the size of the geographical area encompassed by the chapter, travel time necessary to come to meetings, availability of meeting facilities, and personal schedules of individual participants. Chapters meet at least once a year. Meetings may be held in conjunction or simultaneously with those other library associations or with professional associations representing interests similar to those of MLA. A modest registration fee is often charged for chapter meetings to help defray their expenses.
