ACTA International TESOL Conference!

ACTA hosts an International Conference every two years in one State or Territory.

The 2020 Conference was to be held in Brisbane, Queensland in September.

CoVid interrupted this timeline and this conference will still be held in Brisbane in September, but in 2021.
