Would you like to play a greater role in the ELT community in Arizona and have a lasting influence on your colleagues and the future of our field?
Do you want to contribute your skills and passion to helping educators connect, learn, and grow?
Are you interested in broadening your professional experience, networking with teachers all across the state and region, and adding a unique and valuable experience to your list of accomplishments?
If your answer is yes, consider joining the AZTESOL Board! We are an all-volunteer group that meets 5-6 times each year (three in person and three virtual meetings online) to plan conferences, discuss political developments affecting our field, make decisions about funding, guide our newsletter and website, and carry out all of the “behind-the-scenes” activities necessary to make AZTESOL a successful organization and affiliate. We currently have openings for the following positions on our board:
First Vice President
The chief responsibility of the First Vice President is to chair our annual state conference, including establishing a planning committee, developing a theme, recruiting speakers, arranging facilities at the conference location, evaluating proposals, scheduling sessions, working closely with the Business Manager to secure sponsors and exhibitors, and working with the Membership Chair and Treasurer to supervise registration. This board member also assists the President and, when necessary, acts in his/her absence. After a one-year term, this person succeeds to the position of President of AZTESOL.
Second Vice President
The Second Vice President assists the First Vice President in planning and developing our annual state conference. After one year, the Second Vice President becomes the First Vice President and the chair of the state conference. After two years, this person succeeds to the position of President of AZTESOL.
The Business Manager is chiefly responsible for contacting and organizing publishers and other vendors to exhibit at our annual state conference. Other responsibilities include seeking advertisers for the AZTESOL News, cultivating sponsorships for our state conference, and obtaining contributions for prizes that are raffled off at our conferences.
If any of these positions interest you, please send an e-mail with an attached resumé and cover letter to our Past President Nora Reyes (click on the link) by November 9th, 2018, and we’ll get back to you soon.
