Getting involved with TESL London is a great way to serve your community, network, and gain PD credits! TESL London is always looking for members who will offer their time and expertise to build up our professional community by serving on a committee.
Each committee is composed of a Chair and one or more members. These committees are composed of individuals with varied backgrounds and experience, from different teaching sectors and affiliates. The scope and nature of the committee's work determines the membership on the committee. Each committee member commits to a one-year term with a possibility of renewal.
Participation on a committee is strongly recommended prior to serving on the Executive Board.
If you are interested in joining a committee (outlined below), please fill out and submit the following form.
