Board of Directors

TESOL is governed by an elected board of directors. The TESOL executive director serves as an ex-officio member of the board. All TESOL members in good standing are eligible to vote in the board of director's election each year.

The board meets twice a year, in March and October, to review progress on the association's strategic plan, discuss the budget, and conduct other association business.

The TESOL 2018 election results are available for download. Newly elected members will be installed at the TESOL Annual Business Meeting on 29 March at the TESOL International Convention & English Language Expo. If you have any questions, please contact Rita Buckner

If you would like to serve on the TESOL Board of Directors, please visit the Serve as an Elected Leader webpage or contact the TESOL staff office.
