Leadership Updates
WELCOME NEW EEIS OFFICERS
Janice Cate, NBCT

Carol Behel, EEIS chair, announced the results of the EEIS election in December through an email to all EEIS members. The new chair-elect will be Joy L. M. Brown. The new chair will be Theresa Laquerre moving up from chair-elect. Carol Behel will become the past chair at the end of the convention.

Steering board members who will begin serving 3-year terms at the close of the convention are Karen Nemeth and Teresa Ferguson. They will join the four Steering Board members who are currently serving. Each year two Steering Board members’ tenures expire and two new members take their places. Our secretary will continue to be Jessica Burchett.

Next year Carol Behel will help the elected Nominating Committee enlist people to lead our Interest Section. Next year’s Nominating Committee includes Christel Broady, Leslie Kirshner-Morris, Margaret McKenzie, and Kelly Hill. Potential leaders need to be involved in the Interest Section through attendance at the Open Meeting, contributing to the newsletter, leading online discussions in our community, and/or writing proposals and presenting at the conference.

The officers meet twice at the convention and then communicate regularly to each other and our members via the online community and newsletter. For more information about the workings of the officers, read the Interest Section’s guidelines on the EEIS pages of the TESOL website.
