Serve as an Elected Leader

Help us, help TESOL, survive and thrive!

The COVID-19 pandemic is not yet over, but TESOL has stayed strong and resilient. We have a vibrant community that has provided support and service in a myriad of ways over the past year, despite the challenges. As we move forward, we need more elected leaders who can think strategically and reach out globally, who understand our profession and the interests of our educators, and who represent the diverse voices of our members and learners. We are looking for individual TESOLers to serve as President-Elect, Director on the Board (3 positions), or member of the Nominating Committee (8 positions).

To serve as an elected leader, you must have been an active member of TESOL International Association for the past 8 years for President-Elect and 5 years for the Board or Nominating Committee. Candidates for President-Elect and the Board of Directors must have a strong professional background, financial and online literacy, and extensive leadership experience. Candidates for the Nominating Committee must be active in TESOL professional communities and be able to identify and contact candidates from a wide and diverse professional network.

If you are interested, please carefully review the position requirements and submit the online Expression of Interest (EOI) form here. It may take some time to gather the information you need for the EOI, including contacting potential references, so please begin the process early.

The deadline for submitting the online EOI form is 15 June 2021 at 11:59 PM EDT.

If you have any questions, please contact Rita Buckner at +1 703.518.2507.
