Virginia TESOL Joins SETESOL

Kieran Hilu, kieranh@vt.edu

The board of VATESOL (Virginia TESOL) has decided to join the Southeast TESOL Association (SETESOL). This organization is composed of TESOL organizations from the Carolinas, Georgia, Alabama-Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee, Kentucky, Florida, and Arkansas. SETESOL’s mission is to collect and disseminate information about developments in the teaching of English as a second language and to stimulate professional development by arranging for regional annual conferences. These conferences are very well attended with internationally known key speakers.

Our purpose in joining is to benefit from the shared expertise and, by hosting a conference, gain new membership and funds.  Of course, this is a way to connect regionally but, more important, with additional funds we can offer more services to our members. VATESOL has been selected to host the 2011 SETESOL conference in Williamsburg, Virginia. The board of VATESOL is excited about the venue and all the possibilities that can help us to grow.
