Acknowledgment of service: Denise McKay

At our CLESOL Retold event, Denise McKay was officially acknowledged for her significant contributions to TESOLANZ as a long standing executive member. Denise stood down at the AGM in July 2016 and had managed to avoid a public farewell until now! Her contributions on the national executive have included being president, treasurer, and most recently SIG liaison. Denise's extensive knowledge and understanding of the secondary school sector has been invaluable and although no longer officially on the executive, she continues to be involved in discussions relating to this sector. Denise continues to be actively involved in AKTESOL events and we look forward to this continuing. Thank you Denise.
