Western MLA Chapters Meeting — Early Registration Ends 9/15

The early registration deadline for the Western MLA Chapters 2006 Annual Meeting is fast approaching! Your registration needs to be postmarked on or before September 15 to take advantage of the discounted fees.

Missions and Mountains: Believe and Achieve will be held October 14-17, 2006 at the Red Lion Hotel, located in the heart of downtown Seattle.


Our welcome reception/dinner will be extra special this year, since OVID is sponsoring both a reception and a dinner for all attendees.
