Notice of TESL Saskatchewan’s Annual General Meeting
Saturday, September 13, 2014
University of Saskatchewan, Williams Building, Room 224-225, Saskatoon SK
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to invite you to attend the forthcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM) to be held on September 13, 2014. Please find below a link to the AGM package which includes the agenda and the annual financial reports for 2013. At our upcoming Annual General Meeting, the board will be recommending a number of changes to the structure of the organization, including the structure of the membership and the board. Those changes are represented in the proposed bylaws and articles of amendment (separately linked below) that both require membership approval.
We have planned two professional development workshops on the morning of the AGM followed by a luncheon. The workshops will be run by Dr. David Catterick, and they will focus on the following topics: (1) Hello…. is anyone out there?: Helping learners overcome communication reticence. (2) Just another brick in the wall?: Innovative techniques for introducing and consolidating new vocabulary. These workshops will run from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon, and each workshop will be one hour long.
The AGM is an important constitutional gathering of TESL Saskatchewan members to hear about the progress of our organization, recent and on-going developments and the many achievements of the various sections and their members during the past year. The meeting also provides a forum for members to put forward their ideas for the future of the organization.
If you have not yet indicated your attendance or regrets for the PD Workshops, luncheon or AGM, please visit this website https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/H6T9CT2 we have extended the RSVP deadline to August 30, 2014. We look forward to seeing everyone on September 13th.
