The HITESOL Annual Social
was a wonderful success. About 60 people gathered at UH Manoa's Hawaii English Language Program (HELP) on September 15th for an evening of socialization. One BYUH student reported that she made useful contacts. For example, she found two other students like her, who were looking at going to graduate school after finishing their BAs. They were able to exchange notes. Other participants also got to know each other through a series of activities thus drawing our TESOL community together. Mahalo to all the members who came and to those who put this wonderful evening together.
Our next activity will be our Fall Workshop. Details forth coming.

On August 16, 2016, the Hawaii TESOL Board met. We've decided to simplify membership to just two categories.
The thinking is that Oahu teachers literally have a chance to eat up the budget because a large part of the money from membership fees goes to food for the events.
The board also talked about the events for the year. These events will be made public as plans and details are finalized.
Look forward to an exciting year!
The DOE is looking for community input. They have a website for community involvement and there is a link to a survey on it. We encourage you to get involved.
We are currently looking for articles for our newsletter "The Word". See "The Word" Newsletter for the latest edition and submission details.
