Please see the note below from MLA President, Lisa Traditi. The NNLM is designing its regions. Everyone needs to know that this will not be impacting the regional boundaries of our MLA Chapters.

To chapter council:

Dear MLA chapter colleagues,

We have received some questions expressing concern that MLA chapters<https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mlanet.org%2Fp%2Fcm%2Fld%2Ffid%3D32&data=02%7C01%7Clatrina.keith%40einsteinmed.org%7C5733249eded8402c6e6708d85efb0a34%7C9c01f0fd65e040c089a82dfd51e62025%7C0%7C0%7C637363779585440500&sdata=D0thmRYsk%2F5DLmy%2BiJLNHxLvViRRmWOfN4uRprg2GM8%3D&reserved=0> will be required to change in order to align with the new NNLM regional changes<https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Furldefense.com%2Fv3%2F__https%3A%2Fnam01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com%2F%3Furl%3Dhttps*3A*2F*2Fnnlm.gov*2Fworkbook-foa-future-changes*23RMLs%26data%3D02*7C01*7Cjprin2*40lsuhsc.edu*7Cb489b734282a4376fd4108d85b166983*7C3406368982d44e89a3281ab79cc58d9d*7C0*7C0*7C637359499103571987%26sdata%3DsP639vILCgzMP4jL7k3pufsh7*2B8aSwin1CIIpZBQVmI*3D%26reserved%3D0__%3BJSUlJSUlJSUlJSUlJSUl!!Ab1_Rw!Xa4T2kzs9UoQU4JDnHQo70YME3Hlz7PiTZ6r8H_gP32PJlxaa5zfsqIrJLIuEDc%24&data=02%7C01%7Clatrina.keith%40einsteinmed.org%7C5733249eded8402c6e6708d85efb0a34%7C9c01f0fd65e040c089a82dfd51e62025%7C0%7C0%7C637363779585440500&sdata=zuIpKm6zSSJqOZgvgxIGSmvHZd82NXMbDWyMGpizSLA%3D&reserved=0>. This message is designed to answer those questions and calm any concerns you may have.



What the NNLM region adjustment means for our chapters is that some states may be in a different NNLM region than their chapter region. Several chapters currently do not align with the geography of their NNLM regions, and there is no imperative to change this.



The only time that MLA chapter regions would change is if any of the chapters initiated such a change.  Such changes have happened over the years, but only at the request of those chapters to MLA. When chapters do decide to merge or change, they work with Chapter Council. For instance, two of the MLA chapters have been engaged in a careful and thoughtful discussion about merging for a few years and the decision to move forward or not is completely up to those chapters.



Feel free to reach out to me or to Chapter Council Chair Donna Berryman, if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Lisa
