Merge & Converge: Sixteen in ‘16

By Amy Blevins (Midwest Chapter), Chair of the Publicity Committee for Merge & Converge

The last time you heard from me, I shared a fun fact about Des Moines along with some links to cannot miss sights around the city.

Today, I want to remind you that this year, two MLA Chapters spanning sixteen states will be having one spectacular meeting in beautiful Des Moines, IA.  This meeting will take place from Friday October 21-Tuesday October 25 at the Des Moines Marriott Downtown which is located in the center of the downtown business district.  This beautiful hotel is walking distance to shopping, art, food, breweries. 

Conference and hotel registration will be opening up on June 15, 2016, and the hotel is only $144 for a single or double. Remember that meeting our commitment for the room block is what allows us to have meeting rooms at no cost. You can find out more at our meeting website.

Being a joint chapter meeting means that Merge & Converge will have fabulous posters and papers from double the chapters! The deadline for abstract submission has been extended to July 8, 2016 and notifications of acceptance will be made by August 19, 2016.

To find out more, please check out the conference website at and keep up with the latest news and information via the Twitter and Facebook links located on the top right of the page.

We can’t wait to Merge & Converge with all of you in Des Moines!
