The Committee on Disability Issues in the Profession reminds attendees that refraining from using perfume, cologne, and other scented products will help ensure the comfort of everyone at the convention.
The MLA is an organization that knows something about holding meetings involving people with many different needs and backgrounds.

Do we need to let go of our Obsession, change our Chanel, and stop using common scents so that a fellow ward member will be able to attend church?
