    Dear TESOL International Community Members:

    Interested in joining a professional development network that is focused on implicit bias and global leadership? The Intercultural Communication Interest Section (ICIS) of TESOL International is seeking new members! As a member of TESOL International, you can join ICIS as part of your membership.
    ICIS addresses the ever-growing needs of language teachers and teacher educators who must engage in intercultural communication and culture learning and teaching in diverse contexts locally and globally. As a member of the ICIS, you will benefit from on-going professional development by:
    • Building a professional community to enhance expertise in intercultural learning and intercultural communication and intercultural competence development in language programs, teacher education programs and professional development programs.
    • Sharing theory, research findings, and best practices that are relevant to ICIS purpose.
    • Helping those who wish to advocate for intercultural learning and intercultural communicative competence development.

    To learn more about ICIS membership, join us for our next Coffee Hour Chat on Wednesday, May 26th, 12-1pm EST. Join our Cloud HD Video Meeting

    Warm wishes,
    Jennifer Lacroix
