CLA Member Circle Presents: "Graduate Student Round Table"

Calling all Student Members of CLA! We invite you to join the next Member Circle Presents event on Tuesday, January 24, 7pm (edt). We will host a roundtable discussion on the student experience in CLA, with invited student members reflecting upon their present and future engagement with the organization. The roundtable will be followed by a townhall where attendees will have the opportunity to pose questions to members of CLA leadership and share ideas about the support and initiatives that will best serve student members. We hope that you all will join this critical gathering, as we consider the future of the organization and the role of our student members in making the future of CLA what it will be!
