* In May 2013, HAAL signed a formal Memorandum of Understanding with The Malaysian English Language Teaching Association (MELTA). The memorandum was exchanged in Johor Bahru at the 22nd Malaysian English Language Teaching Association International Conference by HAAL treasurer Fiona Hyland and the MELTA president. The memorandum allows HAAL and MELTA to enter into collaborative activities and to support each other’s conferences.
