New Commons Groups for Convention Attendees

Attending the MLA convention in Chicago? Make the most of the convention by participating in convention-related groups on MLA Commons. Two new groups for attendees will help you navigate the convention, connect with colleagues, and stay on top of the latest information. All attendees will want to check out the 2014 MLA Convention group, where you can post convention presentations, browse restaurant recommendations (and add your own), see recent announcements, read the latest convention-related blog posts, and more. Those attending the convention for the first time are encouraged to join the First-Time Convention Attendees group. In addition to providing tips for newcomers, the group is a great place to introduce yourself, ask questions, and start discussions. The Commons also features many member-created groups that focus on specific topics and panels, so spend some time exploring before you arrive in Chicago.
