As usual, the annual Midwest MLA conference offered some great opportunities to expand our professional horizons through networking, programming and continuing education. This year the conference offered six continuing education courses on Saturday, October 5, and one free course on Monday, October 7. The Saturday courses touched on building partnerships, copyright skills, scoping reviews and biomedical scholarly publishing. There were also two course options sponsored by the GMR for those who wished to work on their disaster information specialization. The free class on Monday, “Finding Leadership and Management Opportunities Where You Are”, was attended by almost 40 people. All of the classes were well attended and received positive reviews.
The Midwest Chapter of MLA Professional Practice committee would like to thank our instructors and the GMR for helping us to provide such a variety of diverse and interesting educational opportunities.
