Serve as an Elected Leader

TESOL needs your help to make a difference.
The world is in a global crisis with the COVID-19 pandemic. Learners, parents, and educators are trying to deal with online teaching and learning, isolation, and scarcity. In this challenging time, we need elected leaders who can think strategically and reach out globally, who understand our profession and the needs of our educators and learners. We are committed to encouraging diversity in our leadership and are looking for people to serve as President-Elect, a Director on the Board (3 positions), or a 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 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. 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 completed EOI forms is 11:59 PM U.S. Eastern time, 1 June 2020. If you have any questions, please contact Rita Buckner (phone: +1 703.518.2507).
