The MLA Quad Chapter Meeting, Connections, will take place in Baltimore from Oct 13-16, 2012. Come join us for this next great Baltimore first and connect with your colleagues from other chapters in the Charm City!
Not only is Baltimore charming, but it is the City of Firsts! Amazing world-changing firsts regularly happen there, including: the first YMCA in 1859; the first synthetic sweetener (saccharine) in 1879; the first Ouija board in 1892; and the first Quad Chapter Meeting of MLA in 2012!
The historic Tremont Plaza Hotel is hosting the Quad Chapter Meeting and offering very reasonable rates for their comfortable rooms. You can get a Jr. Suite for as little as $159.00 per night or a Signature 2-Bedroom Suite for only $389.00 per night. The hotel features complimentary wireless Internet, workout facilities, kitchenettes in every suite! Not only will the meeting be bustling, but the hotel is located right by Baltimore’s premier destination, the Inner Harbor, with all the shopping, eating, drinking, and excitement one could want.
Check the conference web site for full details about what to expect. As more plans are made, the web site will be updated with the latest information.
Hope to see you there!
