Online enrollment for the 2016 membership year is now available on the MLA Web site. By joining or renewing for 2016, you’ll receive discounted registration for the 2016 and 2017 conventions; all issues of PMLA and the MLA Newsletter; access to online resources, including the directory of members, MLA Commons, and the MLA Handbook Web site; and more.
When you join or renew for 2016 you’ll also be invited to select up to five forums (formerly divisions and discussion groups) as your primary forum affiliations for the membership year. These affiliations entitle you to receive all mailings initiated by the forum and to vote for members of its executive committee. You’ll continue to have the option of participating in as many forum groups on MLA Commons as you wish; however, joining or leaving a Commons group does not affect your primary affiliation selections, which can be chosen only during the join or renew process.
