The complete program of the AZTESOL 2017 State Conference is now available. Click here to see the program and then select File → Download as… → PDF Document (.pdf) to copy the program to your laptop, tablet, or smartphone. Then take your device with you to the conference, and you won’t need to carry or flip through the print version. In addition to saving a tree, you can also save time by selecting in advance the sessions you plan to attend instead of scrambling at the last minute on conference day to read through all of the abstracts that interest you. Just remember that the schedule is subject to revision and that all changes, cancellations, and additions will be announced at the conference Welcome on the morning of Saturday, October 21.
AZTESOL 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.
