NMTESOL will be holding its 4th Annual Spring Workshop on Saturday, April 5th from 9:30am – 1:00pm at Central New Mexico Community College’s main campus in Albuquerque.
There will be 2 concurrent sessions, lasting for 75 minutes; refreshments; and plenty of opportunities for networking.
If you are interested in sharing some of your expertise with colleagues, please consider submitting a proposal for a presentation. Presentations can cover any aspect of English language teaching. Please use this online submission form to submit a short abstract and workshop organizers will contact you promptly. If you have any questions, please email us at email@example.com
If you are a member of NMTESOL, please use the link found in a recent email to vote for NMTESOL Board of Directors, Slate 2014-2015.
We will be announcing the location of our annual meeting via email soon, so stay tuned!
It is almost time again for the members of NMTESOL to elect three members of the Board of Directors: President, Treasurer, and Web Coordinator. The term of service for these Board members will be the years 2014 and 2015. Before the voting can take place, though, we need your help in finding the best candidates for these positions. Please take a moment to consider whether you or someone you know would be able and willing to serve in one of these capacities. The President’s primary job is to lead the association, for example, by conducting meetings, representing the association to other professional associations and government offices, and taking a major role in organizing conferences. The Treasurer has responsibility for maintaining the association’s financial records and serves as liaison with the association’s accountant, and other duties. (Knowledge of QuickBooks is preferred but not required.) Web Coordinator has responsibility for the association’s email and online presence, and other duties. In addition to being willing to fulfill the basic duties outlined above, the candidates must meet these criteria:
- They must be willing to become a member of NMTESOL (if not already a member).
- If elected, they must be willing to serve in the position for the duration of their two-year term.
- If elected, they must be willing to take part in monthly NMTESOL Board of Directors meetings, which are generally conducted online using Skype.
Anyone can recommend a person for the NMTESOL Board. If you wish to recommend yourself or someone else, please send recommendations to this e-mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org) along with a short introduction of the candidate. Send your candidate recommendations by December 27th, 2013. Voting will be conducted online between December 28th, 2013 and January 17th, 2014. Results will be announced at our annual meeting on January 25th, 2014 and via email.
The NMTESOL/NMAEA Annual Conference is just a few days away.
The conference sign-in begins at 3:30 on Friday with refreshments and networking (socializing) and our kickoff is at 5:00 PM.
Don’t forget a small amount of dirt for La Ceremonía de la Tierra Friday evening (If you don’t know about it, it’s memorable!)
The WTC is located northwest of the I-25 and Alameda intersection. The construction at Paseo Del Norte has not yet begun to cause chaos, so you should be able to drive right through that intersection (albeit slowly) to get to Alameda (if heading north on I-25). Once at Alameda, head west to San Mateo, turn right and right again at the WTC sign. (I know it looks on the map as if San Mateo ends at Oakland, but it does not.)
We look forward to seeing you!
Don’t forget! Register for the conference if you haven’t already.
Here are some reasons why Albuquerque is the place to be in October:
- We have a tram
- We have hot air balloons
- We have a great bio park (with sharks!)
- We have a very cool Old Town, with a very cool church.
- Our National Hispanic Cultural Center and the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center have fabulous museums and activities for the whole family.
- October is a great time to hike in the Petroglyph National Monument.
Join us for the 4th annual NMTESOL-NMAEA Conference “Rising To Meet Tomorrow’s Challenges”.
The conference will be held in Albuquerque, Friday, October 25 and Saturday, October 26. All events on both days will be held at the CNM Workforce Training Center at 5600 Eagle Rock Ave NE, Albuquerque, NM 87113.
