    We still need a candidate willing to serve as Vice-President of the Society for the June 2019-May 2020 term who will then move up to President for June 2021-May 2022. We also need two volunteers willing to serve on the Language Society Council, one handling room reservations for teachers who do not have access to the 3M system and the other handling publicity for Society events. Please send an e-mail to daveyarusso@gmail.com if you would be willing to serve.

    After election, the officers will appoint 2-4 Council Members to fill responsibilities identified on our Contacts page.  Please nominate yourself or others for these positions as well so that the new officers know who is willing to serve.
