The Seoul KOTESOL chapter’s first priority is our members which is why our mission is simple: improve membership retention while expanding our community. To this end, we are putting out the call to our current members to tell us how we can better serve the chapter. You can do this by filling out our ongoing online survey or by emailing directly. In terms of expanding chapter membership, we encourage you to tell your colleagues, friends, and anyone else interested in KOTESOL to drop by one of our events.
