What Are Some ICIS Activities?

TESOL Convention in San Antonio, March 2005

The ICIS helped more than 33 presenters get on the program of TESOL's 2005 convention and offer their expertise on many topics of relevance to intercultural communication (IC). A networking reception was held for ICIS members after the open meeting for our interest section.

TESOL Convention in Tampa, March 2006

Proposal readers (volunteers from our membership) reviewed IC-related proposals for the 2006 convention. By early December the convention schedule was finalized and will soon thereafter be made available on this Web site for ICIS members. Sessions of relevance to IC will be listed to help members make their plans in advance.
