The 2018 Conference  held at Hawaii Tokai International College on February 17th was a great success. Over a 150 people registered. There were more than 25 classroom presentations and nearly 20 poster presentations. 

Thanks to Nancy for planning the conference and Samantha for helping facilitate it at Tokai. A big MAHALO also goes out to all who presented and/or participated. A special thanks is extended to Dr. Richard Day, who was an excellent plenary speaker. 

It's never too early to start planning your presentation for next year.

The Professional Development Workshop on Nov. 15th hosted by Paul Rama and his Technology students was excellent. It emanated from the BYUH campus and connected via Polycom  to Maui, Big Island, and KCC. 

Mahalo Paul.

    Our sister affiliate recently posted this Call for Submissions for the March 2018 TESOL Ukraine Conference.

    This year's conference will be held in Lviv, a beautiful city in Western Ukraine and one of the cultural centers of the country. Should any member of Hawai'i TESOL decide to travel to Ukraine to attend the conference, let Sally La Luzerne-Oi, Hawai'i TESOL/TESOL Ukraine Co-Liaison, know in advance, and she will try to arrange with TESOL Ukraine members for some type of hospitality (e.g. airport pick up, city tour).
