Guest Passes to Sessions
All MLA members and members of the profession that the MLA serves are required to register in order to participate in or attend sessions.
A convention speaker may obtain a pass for a guest who has no professional interest in language or literature to hear a presentation by that speaker at a single session. The speaker must request the pass at one of the MLA registration and welcome centers on the day of the session, before the centers close. Passes may not be requested by guests of speakers, MLA members who have not registered for the convention, or by speakers for guests for any reason except to see the requester speak in a particular session.
