Once again, and to continue with the tradition started in 2011 on occasion of APIBA's 40th Anniversary, we are extremely proud to announce APIBA's Annual Fellowship Lunch. This year we will be holding an optional pre-lunch workshop delivered by our dear APIBA member Prof. Ricardo Cavallini. This academic activity will be open to both members and non-members.
We would like to invite you to join the APIBA SIGs' sessions to be held in May and June 2015. You can read the schedules and agendas at: www.apiba.org.ar/index.php/nuestra-asociacion/programas/sigs.
Please remember that everyone can join a SIG. All you need is to be keen to learn, share ideas, meet colleagues and develop as a professional.
APIBA runs SIGs on relevant areas in the field of the teaching of English, such as Literature, Methodology, Languageand Phonology, Professional Issues, Young Learners, Business English (recently re-launched), and for those who are interested in new technologies, there is the e-Teaching and Learning (e-TL) SIG, which meets online.
The 2015 SIGs calendar (all year's sessions) and SIGs FAQs are available at http://apiba.org.ar/index.php/nuestra-asociacion/programas/sigs.

In the SIG Opening Event on April 11, and to start off a special year of celebration of our dear APIBA SIGS, which are turning 15 this year, we briefly went through their history and some APIBA members suggested re-launching this very successful SIG, which first started in the year 2000 and was extremely popular for a number of years, but then disappeared around 10 years ago.
Interested? Join the SIG on its very first meeting to decide what topics to discuss on a monthly basis during 2015, where to meet - either face to face or virtually- and who will coordinate the SIG meetings this year. It´s essential that you should remember what a SIG is and what it is not. " A SIG is not a traditional course, seminar or workshop, but a study group that demands the commitment and active participation of all its members" (APIBA SIG Handbook, 2013 , page 12)
