The College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) is a group of student-oriented professionals active in the fields of reading, learning assistance, tutorial services, and developmental education at the college/adult level. Inherently diverse in membership, CRLA's most vital function and overall purpose is to provide a forum for the interchange of ideas, methods, and information to improve student learning and to facilitate the professional growth of its members. The Mid-Atlantic Region Conference offers a time- and cost-effective opportunity for learning assistance professionals and paraprofessionals to accomplish this purpose.
