Our archives are going digital

Old photo albumAZTESOL is converting photos of its past events to an all-digital format and posting them online. You may remember flipping through our photo albums at a table in the lobby at many of our state conferences. To better preserve these images and make them available to the entire AZTESOL community, we are scanning those old snapshots and adding them to our Flickr page. We don’t have pictures of every conference, and some of the photos are showing their age (you may see parts of sticky labels that won’t come off anymore without damaging the images), but various board members and volunteers have helped us amass an impressive visual record over the years, and we want to share our long history with you.  Check out our conferences going back to 1976 by clicking on the links on our Past Conferences page. We’ll be posting more photos over the next several months, so be sure to revisit our site soon.
