Are you interested in helping Us support the Colorado TESOL community?
Please join the CoTESOL board and help us to continue our mission. To be considered, you must first complete an application (Application for 2023-24 Board) to express your interest in serving on the board. You can read more about each volunteer position below.
Overview of Board Member Responsibilities
All Board Positions are Listed in Section IV of the CoTESOL Constitution
Attending board meetings: CoTESOL board meetings are held in January, February, March/April, May, July, September, and October, unless otherwise specified. We meet online, or in person with a remote attendance option available. Different board members may offer to host the meetings, usually at their work sites. Much of the work of CoTESOL is done during the meetings, and the input of all board members is invaluable. Meetings are the place for influencing the direction that the organization takes.
Helping in general with the running of events: There are many tasks that go into running the annual convention, and nothing would happen without our board members. Some of the tasks may include: stuffing convention bags with programs and handouts, working at the registration area, serving as an "Ask Me" volunteer, handing out raffle tickets, or helping to provide/distribute AV equipment. At our online events, board members volunteer to host virtual meeting rooms, moderate the chat, and provide tech support to presenters.
Special Interest Group (SIG) Chairs
Contributing to newsletters: CoTESOL currently publishes 3 newsletters per year in the spring, summer, and fall. Each SIG is asked to contribute an article to at least one newsletter each year. The article can be almost anything of interest to the SIG: a book review, an update on a project, a summary of the convention, an interview with or spotlight on an individual, and so on.
Thank you for your interest!
