EnglishUSA expands membership range
EnglishUSA has announced that it has expanded its membership range for 2020-21 to include two new membership and engagement categories.
This expansion will enable a greater range of programme types and for more individuals to join EnglishUSA, the organisation believes.
These additional membership and engagement categories will include pathway programmes that did not previously meet the criteria for inclusion under EnglishUSA’s former membership requirements.
EnglishUSA says its intention is to enable users to network with an expanded group of professionals, an experience which will help them to better navigate uncertain futures amidst these unpredictable market conditions.
New EnglishUSA membership range includes independent services
EnglishUSA has also broadened its network of engagement to include a new category, entitled ‘Friends of EnglishUSA’.
This category is designed to provide support to individuals acting as independent consultants and contractors or freelancers, in order to offer them products and services relevant to the English language programme industry.
These individuals can apply for a year’s membership as a Friend of EnglishUSA.
In response to the current situation as affected by the global pandemic, EnglishUSA is currently offering a 50% discount towards this membership.
EnglishUSA believes that these changes to their membership will enable the association to expand its outreach and support, encompassing a wider variety of English language programs as it does so.
It also hopes to raise awareness of the importance of these courses, in terms of attracting international students to the United States for personal, professional and academic English language study.
Offering over 300 accredited, post-secondary English programmes, EnglishUSA is the largest professional membership association of its kind. They both represent and support English language programmes that take place throughout America.
The member programmes encompass a diverse range of English language programmes, including those at a variety of higher education institutions. All of these programmes are hosted by a regionally-accredited institution, recognised by either CEA or ACCET.
