Dear Associate Members,   【日本語は英文の後に続きます】

It is hard to believe the year is almost over! We hope 2019 was a good year for you and would like to thank you for your ongoing support of JALT and its programs.
Call for Applications—JALT2020 Featured Speaker Workshops
We are happy announce that applications for JALT2020 Featured Speaker Workshops are now accepted via the following link. 
Submission Deadline: Monday, February 24, 2020
The Featured Speaker Workshops are scheduled on Saturday, November 21 and Sunday, November 22
Submission vetting will be based on a combination of the following criteria:

* Internationally known scholars or authors from inside/outside of Japan.

Non-repeaters from previous years will be given preference. A person cannot be a Plenary or Featured Speaker more than twice in three years.

* Multiple submissions are allowed, but AMs may be limited to sponsoring one Featured Speaker.
Each speaker will conduct a 60-minute workshop and a 25-minute presentation related to the conference theme, "Communities of Teachers and Learners."One session will be scheduled on Saturday, November 21, and the other on Sunday, November 22. Presenters, therefore, must be available for both days to be eligible for this program.
Sponsors are expected to pay for their speaker’s transportation, lodging, and any honorarium they may wish to offer. JALT will waive conference participation fees for the speaker. (Registration for the speaker is not necessary. JALT Central Office will register all Featured Speakers.) 
If accepted, the Director of Program and Featured Speaker Liaison will be in touch to work out the details. If you have any questions, please contact Wayne Malcolm, the Director of Program <program@jalt.org>. 
In the previous email, the address for JALT Director of Program was incorrect. We apologize for the mistake. The correct address is <program@jalt.org>.
