We are fortunate to be meeting at Arlington Heights Library for our fall meeting. They have an excellent ESL program. I hope you can all make it.
Below is the agenda for the meeting. We will be omitting the portion of the meeting which we usually devote to sharing resources in favor of discussing what we would like the future of LEARN to be (i.e How do members hope to benefit from LEARN, or what can LEARN do to best help members provide and promote ESL?).
