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:

  1. They must be willing to become a member of NMTESOL (if not already a member).
  2. If elected, they must be willing to serve in the position for the duration of their two-year term.
  3. 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 (nmtesol@gmail.com) 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.

More Conference Updates!

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!WTC Campus 5-7-06
