IATEFL POLAND REGIONS AND SIGs 2024

Dear IATEFL Poland members,

This year, in order to better serve our members and the Polish teaching market at large, we will be instituting some exciting changes.

For 2024, we are reducing and redistributing the regions to better reflect membership and reducing the number of SIGs to better reflect changes in education. This will allow us to have more streamlined and active events offerings from both the SIGs and Regions and allow for greater participation from SIG and Region volunteers. 

The changes are as follows:

IATEFL POLAND REGIONS AND SIGs 2024

Regions will be redistributed as:

North – Pomorskie, Warmińsko-Mazurskie, Zachodniopomorskie

               Pomeranian, Warmian-Masurian, West Pomeranian

 East –  Podlaskie, Lubelskie

               Podlaskie, Lublin

Central – Mazowieckie, Łódzkie, Kujawsko-Pomorskie

               Masovian, Lodz, Kuyavian-Pomeranian

South – Śląskie, Świętokrzyskie, Małopolskie, Podkarpackie

               Silesian, Holy Cross, Lesser Poland, Subcapathian 

West – Opolskie, Wielkopolskie, Dolnośląskie, Lubuskie

               Opole, Greater Poland, Lower Silesian, Lubusz

Regional representatives will form teams covering their respective regions.

Terms of service will be reduced to 2 years, renewable at the end of term.

An allowance/points system will determine the level of compensation achieved for the waiving of conference fees and accommodation costs for the annual conference.

·        Participate in the Regions Meeting(s) either f-2-f or online
