Serve as a 2016 ICTFL Fall Conference Volunteer

Fall Conference 2016 co-chairs, Kathryn Wolfkiel and Jane Swisher, invite you to join their Conference Committee.  It takes many willing hands and a constant influx of creative ideas to present the quality Conference we do every year.  Even though the general structure of Conference ’16 is in place and many committee members are already in place, more are welcome.
