It is definitely kosher to stop by! Check out the conference website<http://mla2012.musiclibraryassoc.org/> to see when programs that might interest you are happening, and for registration information.
Usually between 400-500 attend MLA (as I recall). All friendly!

I am on the ARSC list, live in Dallas, and not MLA. is it kosher to stop by? I work with audio accessions for audio at the SIL Language and Culture Archive. How well attended is this conference? over 100 people? less than 500 people?
