NEWS ~ June 2015
Board Announcement & More
Dear ELLSA Community,

We hope this newsletter finds you well. Welcome to our June ELLSA Newsletter, the last of the academic year. Here’s what we have for you:

We are happy to announce our first ELLSA Board and Chapter Coordinators for 2015-2017 term! It is with great excitement and anticipation we'll collaborate to further the ELLSA mission to promote and support best practice in English language teaching and learning for students in international schools in Asia to fruition.

Local ELLSA Chapters include Thailand, Laos, South Korea, Vietnam and China! Chapter Coordinators will be in touch with members of the ELLSA Community for their respective country in the new academic year. We hope that there will be some ELLSA events near you in 2015-2016.

Here is the new ELLSA Board and Chapter Coordinators. As you can see, we decided in the end not to put it out for a vote from the community. This was due to the volume of applications and some changes we decided to make as we went through the process. We are excited that we are able to offer roles in ELLSA to everyone who applied to be involved.
