Dear AAFLT Member,
Due to the inclement weather and subsequent logistic problems affecting central portion of our state, we find it necessary to cancel this weekend’s annual Alabama Association of Foreign Language Teachers conference. Auburn University at Montgomery, our host, will be closed tomorrow for the third business day this week and the necessary support services are not guaranteed to be in place for our group Friday.
People registered at the Drury Inn will need to call 1-800-325-0720 to cancel their individual reservation to not incur a fee.
We will hold first-time presenter and first-time attendee stipends until next year.
We plan to retain the same program next year, so please plan to attend our conference at AUM January 30-31, 2015.
We will solicit awards nominations for 2015 later this year. We will follow up in a separate message regarding other AAFLT business matters.
Heather A. West
AAFLT Executive Director
Joanna B. Crane
It is with great sorrow that AAFLT notes the loss of its founder, Joanna B. Crane, November 23, 2013. For many years, she guided those of us in the language-teaching profession at the State Department of Education, all the time setting higher and higher standards for us. For those of us who worked directly with her, we will never forget her special way of running a meeting. We will greatly miss our mentor and colleague.
Her memory lives on in the Joanna B. Crane scholarship, founded in her honor, which AAFLT gives pre- and in-service language teachers to help them study abroad, as this was one of her passions. Click here to donate to this ongoing campaign to help other teachers reach their professional goals.
