Board of Directors

TESOL is governed by an elected 12-member 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 2015 election results are available.

The board meets three times a year, in March, June, and October, to review progress on the association's strategic plan, discuss the budget, and conduct other association business. For more information on the board, please visit Board Actions and Followup.
