We are a small but growing chapter with dedicated and enthusiastic members. We were honored to receive second place in “Outstanding Small Chapter” at the 2018 convention in Martinique! We remain active throughout the school year; we organize a conference at the University of Maine at Augusta every fall and are represented every March at our annual state language association conference (FLAME) where we offer many workshops with Francophone content and encourage French teachers participate in our diverse activities. We send a monthly newsletter to keep our members abreast of professional development, scholarship and contest information, Francophone cultural events in the New England region, and to encourage our teachers to take advantage of all the resources and opportunities that the AATF offers. We also offer two local scholarships. We are proud to be a continuing sponsor of the fall immersion weekend. Highly skilled and experienced volunteer French teachers lead group activities and give participants a choice of workshops targeting different intermediate and advanced levels.
