Australian Council of TESOL Associations (ACTA) Annual General Meeting
ACTA is holding its annual general meeting on Thursday 18 April, 7 pm.
The Australian Council of TESOL Associations (ACTA) is the national coordinating body for all associations of Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) across Australia.
ACTA seeks to advocate for and enhance the profile of the TESOL profession in Australia through a wide range of activities in local, regional, national and international contexts.
ACTA’s objectives are:
- to represent and support the interests of teachers of English to speakers of other languages and dialects and their students
- to ensure access to appropriate English language instruction for speakers of other languages and dialects
- to encourage implementation and delivery of quality professional programs at all levels
- to promote study, research and development of TESOL at local, regional, national and international levels.
If you are currently a member of your state or territory TESOL professional association, your membership with ACTA is automatic.
ACTA is made up of councillors from each state and territory association. Councillors need to be nominated by state and territory TESOL associations.
Whilst any member of the ATESOL NT can be an ACTA councillor, you also need to be prepared to be a member of the executive of ATESOL NT as well.
Councillors need to be nominated by state and territory TESOL associations. The number of councillors for each association is restricted according to member numbers: 1 councillor for member associations with fewer than 50 members, 2 councillors if membership is between 50 and 200, 3 councillors if membership is between 201 and 350, 4 councillors if membership exceeds 350.
All members of TESOL associations are welcome to attend the AGM. Only TESOL association councillors or their designated proxies are entitled to vote at the AGM.
Please complete an ACTA Council Nomination Form 2019 (1) if you wish to nominate as an ACTA Councillor for 2019. Nomination forms need to be signed by the nominee and two (2) office-bearers of ATESOL NT.
