These are uncertain and challenging times and we hope all Midwest MLA members, families, colleagues, friends, and acquaintances are doing well and staying safe and healthy. We want to provide an update as to how the current state of things have affected the annual meeting’s status. 
The 2020 Conference Planning Committee and the Midwest MLA Executive Board have decided that – rather than hold an in-person meeting in Bloomington IN this fall – the 2020 Midwest MLA Chapter meeting will be a virtual meeting, jointly held with the Midcontinental Chapter from October 14-16th. Please check the virtual conference website for the most up to date information: http://midwestmla.org/virtual2020/
