Annual Meetings

Each fall, members gather at a MACTLAC institution for a two day meeting.  The meeting (usually in October) provides a forum for faculty at liberal arts institutions to discuss a variety of issues of mutual interest and concern.
If you and your college are interested in hosting a future meeting, please read the Guidelines for Host Institutions document.
