EnglishUSA, the American Association of Intensive English Programs, has announced that Cheryl Delk-Le Good has been appointed as Executive Director, effective from August 17.

Delk-Le Good joins the association after a long tenure with Georgia State University, where she was the Director of Intensive English Programs.

In recent years, she has served as a commissioner for the Commission on English Language Accreditation (CEA) and as IEP Network Leader for the International Enrollment Management Knowledge Community for NAFSA. She has also served on the boards of EnglishUSA and University and College Intensive English Programs (UCIEP).

In addition to her leadership experience, she has also authored two ESL textbooks and conducted programme and curriculum reviews nationally and internationally.

Becky George, Chair of EnglishUSA’s Search Committee for the appointment, said, “Cheryl possesses that essential combination of successful leadership experience and in-depth industry knowledge needed as EnglishUSA continues to solidify its pivotal role in elevating standards and providing advocacy for the field.”

Commenting on the appointment, Delk-Le Good said, “I am thrilled to be named as the new Executive Director for EnglishUSA. I have been inspired by the mission, vision and work of EnglishUSA since the beginning of my career in programme administration and look forward to engaging the membership in new ways and collaborating effectively with current and future boards to represent the organisation and provide continued and improved support for IEPs across the country.”

“We are fortunate to welcome such an accomplished industry expert to lead our association,” said President of the association, Caroline O’Neal. “EnglishUSA has seen fantastic growth in members and services over the past several years, and we are now positioned to expand the association’s activities. Cheryl is the ideal person to help drive our vision to be the recognised voice of intensive English programmes in the USA.”

The Executive Director appointment follows the recent announcement of the EnglishUSA 2015-16 Executive Board.  

Founded in 1986, EnglishUSA has a membership of over 400 IEPs throughout the country.
