Request a Meeting Space

Committees, Subcommittees, Interest Groups, and Task Forces may submit requests for meeting space for the Portland conference.

Before submitting a request for space, please consider the following:

  1. Would it be possible for your group to shorten its meeting time? The Program Committee is offering slots of 25 minutes this year, which may be enough time for your group to work through a meeting agenda.
  2. Would your group be willing to meet in an informal space, like a coffee shop or lobby area? The meeting would still be included in the official program, but allow the group to meet anywhere in Portland (and its said there are many excellent coffee shops).
  3. Could your group combine its meeting with another group? Many MLA groups work on joint projects, and it may be to your advantage to have a joint meeting.

Meeting spaces will NOT be outfitted with A/V equipment.
