What should the MLA be ﬁve and ten years from now? In a time of acute change in higher education, how should the association adapt to serve its members and our profession? These are questions the ofﬁcers, the Executive Council, and the staff are considering as we make plans for the near future. I would like to outline three challenges the MLA will confront over the next several years and mention brieﬂy how we are already addressing them. There is much to be done, however, and in the coming months we will want to hear from you.
