Our theme, “Riding the Waves of Success,” represents the challenges and achievements our educators and students collectively face at all levels. This theme will be central in a full program of pre-conference institutes, multiple plenaries, featured speakers, level and interest group workshops, poster sessions, an electronic village, and general sessions for every level of ESL. Please join us as we learn from and interact with our colleagues in our professional organization.
Stay at the beautiful Town and Country Resort Hotel for the low, single-occupancy rate of $159 per night and enjoy every moment of the conference, from the opening plenary and hosted reception on Thursday evening, to the Presidential Luncheon and escorted dinners on Friday, to the Saturday Night Sizzle and to the Sunday Workshops.
Stay tuned to the conference website for continued updates on the academic program and special events.
Whether you are a teacher, administrator, researcher, or graduate student, there will be many workshops to help you “grow” in the profession. See you in October in San Diego.
