Attention session chairs! We encourage you to organize get-togethers with your presenters. Whether you share a meal or a drink, visiting with your presenters outside of the conference room setting allows you to talk more about your research, explore the topic of your session in greater detail, and get to know your fellow convention participants. 

At the 2018 Pittsburgh convention, organize get-togethers with your presenters, take a photograph of your gathering, and email it to photos@nemla.org with the names of all attendees. Session chair(s) in the winning photo will receive free convention registration for our 2019 meeting in Washington, DC. (Don't forget to propose a session for NeMLA 2019, starting March 2018!)
