Former Board Members

For more than 40 years, ACTFL has benefited from the unselfish leadership of hundreds of members who have served on the Board of Directors.  These are the people who have assumed the added time and responsibility that Board service requires, providing guidance and the benefit of their experience as educators and administrators in the language profession.  Their dedication and hard work have made ACTFL a dynamic, progressive and responsive organization serving the needs of the language profession and individual educators.

ACTFL members and staff recognize and appreciate the vitally important contributions that these past Board members have made.
