Colleague Connection is MLA’s mentoring program that pairs newer members or first-time meeting attendees with returning, more experienced members during the annual meeting. The purpose of Colleague Connection is to introduce new attendees to the association and help them get the most out of the MLA annual meeting. Initial contacts made through Colleague Connection can lead to lifelong friendships with your peers and increase your professional network.
Don’t be left out – sign up as a mentee or mentor today: http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22F9Y65KUWA
If you are a new member or first time conference attendee, consider pairing up with an experienced colleague at the meeting in Seattle! Colleague Connection allows you to have your questions about the conference answered, maximize your time, choose the best programs and meetings to attend, meet new colleagues, build your professional network, and discuss new ideas.
Returning members benefit from Colleague Connection, too! Mentoring a colleague during the conference can expand your professional network, expose you to new ideas, and help you see the conference from a fresh perspective. In addition, you will get the satisfaction of helping someone – there’s no greater reward than that!
Mentees and Mentors should register here: http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22F9Y65KUWA. Those who sign up by Friday, May 11 will be guaranteed to receive their mentor or mentee before leaving for the meeting. Once assigned, each pair of colleagues will be responsible for working out times to meet and connect.
