LETTER FROM THE CHAIRS
Dear PAIS Community,
We are thrilled to be able to bring you this latest issue of the PAIS Newsletter with contributions from our colleagues across the field! We want to take a moment to thank our authors for contributing their expertise and insights. Program administrators fill diverse roles in the ELT profession, from teacher trainer to records manager, from curriculum coordinator to all-around problem solver. If you have an innovative practice that could be adapted in other contexts, please consider sharing with the PAIS community by writing for the PAIS Newsletter.
The PAIS Newsletter is just one of several initiatives that we have undertaken this year to reinvigorate our community of practice. Most recently, PAIS coordinated our first virtual meeting to bring you timely and relevant information on pathway programs. With more than 50 participants, we were encouraged by the enthusiastic response from our community. Our goal is to continue to reach out to you through the MyTESOL portal to solicit feedback on how we can best serve our unique population.
Finally, PAIS is an all-volunteer effort! We want to encourage you to get involved with us by reaching out through the PAIS MyTESOL forum or even by attending the PAIS Annual Business Meeting at the TESOL International Convention. This is a great way to network with like-minded professionals in ELT administration.
