The Interest Group Council is Looking for You!
As we plan for our Fall 2021 conference, we are looking for members who might be interested in getting involved in our 2021-2022 operating year as part of CATESOL's Interest Group Council (IGC).
Our interest groups are managed by people like you, who are interested in a particular aspect of language education and wish to share their experiences and bring content and opportunities to our membership.
Currently, we have 12 different areas that might be of interest for you to consider. We are looking for coordinators and assistant coordinators in the following IGs (see list below). If you are interested or would like to find out more information, please contact the specific IG Coordinator or the IG Chairs. All of us will be delighted to provide you with more information about our IGs and how you can become a part of the IGC for 2021-2022! We look forward to getting to know you!
