Because of the Covid-19, the 2020 Regional SETESOL Conference is cancelled. VATESOL, originally scheduled to host the 2020 SETESOL, is rescheduled to host the SETESOL Conference in 2022. GATESOL will host the 2021 SETESOL Conference. Some states in our region will still host virtual conferences in the fall.
