ETAS Regions

The ETAS regions bring ETAS events to where the members are.

Apart from national events, ETAS organises regional events that are open to members and non-members alike. Every region caters for the English teachers of their region, taking into account the membership structure, their professional activities and subsequent needs. One or two Regional Coordinators are in regular contact with their membership to be able to address their needs.
