Founding Members of NNELL…
We would like to recognize the following 26 people who were the founding members of NNELL. They were part of a group who attended a historic FLES networking session, at the 1986 ACTFL Conference in Dallas, when it was decided that it was time to form an official network for early language learning. Of the group at that session, those listed below attended a “FLES Network Planning Meeting” at the Center for Applied Linguistics from January 31 to February 1, 1987 when NNELL was founded. Thank you all for your continued support. We couldn’t do it without you!

In the Spring 1991 issue of NNELL’s publication FLES News, we announced the decision that NNELL was changing from an informal network to a formal organization. On the membership form, we said, “In honor of NNELL becoming an official organization, anyone who renews their subscription or becomes a member for the first time by Fall 1991 will be listed as a Founding Member of NNELL.
