We asked our Board members to share with us whether they will be presenting at LTRC, AAAL, and/or TESOL. It turns out that Jodi Crandall, Jun Liu, and David Nunan will be particularly busy during their time in Toronto. In case you are interested in meeting with these Trustees, or if you wish to learn more about their work beyond their volunteer service to the Foundation, we have posted below selected presentation information.
