At its meeting in March, the TESOL Board of Directors received the final report from the Governance Review Task Force (GRTF). This report was made available online, and the task force’s findings were shared with leaders at the 2014 TESOL International Convention. Initial feedback collected from leaders at the convention is available here.
The final piece of the report – the recommended options and alternatives – is being released now for public feedback. Those documents are available here.
The information in these documents was developed and submitted to the board by the GRTF; no decisions have been made as to which options to pursue. The board highly values your input, feedback, and comments. The TESOL Board of Directors would like to receive your feedback before moving forward to ensure a transparent and collaborative decision-making process.
From now until 31 May 2014, the board invites you to submit your feedback and comments in response to the GRTF report. You are encouraged not only to respond to the options and alternatives, but to the findings from their review. Please use the space below to post your comments and feedback.
This comment period will be the first of two periods of public feedback as the board considers next steps in the governance review process. (A full timeline is available here.) As you will see in the report, there is much to consider in ensuring that TESOL International Association continues to meet the needs of members and the field now and into the future.
