The July ATEK newsletter, which was sent out to all members, announced that presidential nominations began on July 23. They close tomorrow.
So far, one person has submitted her candidacy, and while I'm assured that she's awesome, it's better for the organization, and better for English teachers, if we have more people in the running. Campaigning and presidential debates allow for a discussion of English teachers' situation in Korea, and the future of the organization, in a way that more clearly articulates a person's vision, and the community's needs. If you're a general member of ATEK, and you want to throw your hat in the ring, the nomination period ends tomorrow, so get down to the ATEK general members forum to join the race. Also: any nominations need to be seconded by a general member. Don't forget to second candidates you support.
