    Dear Colleagues,

    Please find a message below from our President, Joyce Kling to serve as a Leader for the President-Elect, Board of Directors, and the Nominating Committee.  Please read the message carefully and apply for any position you are interested in and eligible.  The deadline is June 15th!

    On behalf of TESOL's board of directors, I want to invite you to apply to be a TESOL leader. You can make a difference for learners and colleagues around the world with your innovative ideas and vision to re-imagine English language teaching.


    Entering a new phase in its history, we at TESOL have mobilized the collective energy of our volunteer leaders and staff and succeeded in pursuing our mission during the COVID-19 crisis. As we move forward, we need to identify elected leaders who can think strategically and reach out globally, who understand our profession and the interests of our educators, and who represent the diverse voices of our members and learners. We are looking for individual TESOLers to serve as president-elect, director on the board (2 positions), or member of the Nominating Committee (8 positions).


    To serve as an elected leader, you must have been an active member of TESOL International Association for the past 8 years for president-elect and 5 years for the board or Nominating Committee. Candidates for president-elect and the board of directors must have a strong professional background, financial and online literacy, and extensive leadership experience.


    Candidates for the Nominating Committee must be active in TESOL professional communities and be able to identify and contact candidates from a wide and diverse professional network.


    If you are interested, please carefully review the position requirements and submit the online Expression of Interest (EOI) form here.


    It may take some time to gather the information you need for the EOI, including contacting potential references, so please begin the process early.


    The deadline for submitting the online EOI form is 15 June 2022 at 11:59 p.m. EDT.


    If you have any questions, please email Rita Buckner or +1 703.518.2507.
