ACLALS receives official accreditation to The Commonwealth (2005)
In the letter of acceptance, Alexandra Jones, Director of Strategic Planning and Evaluation of the Commonwealth Secretariat wrote: "I am pleased to tell you that your application for Accreditation to the Commonwealth has been approved by the Accreditation Committee. The Committee was very pleased to hear about the work of the Association for Commonwealth Literature and Language Studies in supporting the values and programmes of the Commonwealth." Accreditation to The Commonwealth gives ACLALS a "special Commonwealth status" in the words of Sharon Robinson, civil society liaison officer of the Commonwealth Secretariat. ACLALS is now invited to attend special events such as the civil society consultations and participate in other meetings in The Commonwealth, including the People's Forum of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings (CHOGM).
I am so very pleased that the association has received this encouragement.
