Call for Volunteers to Serve on New Professional Councils

by David Cutler | 11/30/2017
TESOL International Association is currently seeking applications to serve on its newly created Affiliate Network Professional Council (ANPC) and Public Policy Professional Council (PPPC). 

Serving in a leadership capacity for the association offers a unique opportunity for personal and professional growth and is one of the features of TESOL membership. TESOL members volunteer to help  create and disseminate knowledge, to advise on programs and strategic initiatives, to influence public policy, and to maintain a strong organization. Through their membership in TESOL and volunteering, TESOL leaders play a vital role in supporting the work of the association, which could not be accomplished without their time and expertise

The initial term for appointments to these Professional Councils lasts from February — October 2018, with the option to renew for a full year at the end of the appointment. The maximum continuous service period on these Professional Councils is three years. To be eligible, you must be a member of TESOL International Association in good standing.

To learn more about the role and function of these new Professional Councils, and to apply online, please follow the links below. The deadline to apply is 31 December 2017.
