Talk / KOTESOL’s International Conference 2020: The Early Stages

Organisational + Conference Planning

KOTESOL’s International Conference is a major undertaking, fueled by the volunteer efforts of the International Conference Committee. This poster session provides National Conference attendees a chance to take a peek inside IC 2020, and see how things are shaping up. The visual display will include how the conference committee is structured and operates, as well as some of the preliminary plans for the 2020 conference. The session will also be an opportunity to meet the 2020 Conference Chair, give feedback on past conferences, and share ideas on how KOTESOL can deliver an outstanding event. Finally, for those interested in helping out, this would be a great chance to get in on the ground floor!
