Who are we?

The Foreign Language Association of Missouri (FLAM)
is a statewide professional association and advocacy group that represents all language instructors in the state of Missouri.

Our Vision

Do you teach a World language in Missouri? You're already part of FLAM!

Our Mission

  • To foster an inclusive World Languages Professional Learning Community (PLC), with a common goal of achieving high standards for communicative proficiency, promoting cross-cultural understanding, and cultivating mutual respect.


  • To inform the members on best practices and current issues in the field so that they may continually advance as accomplished educators.


  • To advocate for World Languages programs by reaching out to communities, school administrators, and government officials to inform them about the benefits of learning an additional language in the development of the whole child and the global opportunities created through language education.

FLAM's Annual Conference, held each fall, is the association's premiere event for its members.


In an effort to support the CSCTFL (Central States Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages) Conference to be held in Spring 2025 in Kansas City, FLAM will host three small regional conferences.



Mark your calendars for November 09, 2024. Call for proposals coming soon!
