Congratulations to Our Newly Elected Leaders

Brock Brady2 Fellow TESOL Members,

Please join me in congratulating our newly elected President-Elect,  Board Members, and Nominating Committee Members.  They are named below.

I look forward to serving with them and I know they look forward to serving you.  Don't hesitate to tug on our sleeves with questions or suggestions, or if you're just kind enough to want to help out.

To paraphrase Pogo, we have met the membership and they are us :-).  We are starting out 2011 with a new strategic plan, a new communications strategy, and a continuing commitment to help TESOL become a place where "everybody knows your name" (and yes, now I steal from "Cheers," an old 80s sitcom).

I hope you'll be able to join us in New Orleans to celebrate TESOL's 45th birthday, and in any and all cases, may 2011 bring health, prosperity, and happiness to you and yours.

My very best,

Brock Brady
President, 2010–2011
