BAAL organises scientific meetings, and publishes a newsletter and conference proceedings. We support applied linguistic activity via fundingspecial interest groups, an annual book prize, seminars in collaboration with Cambridge University Press and a series of researcher development workshops.

We bring together the applied linguistics community via BAALmail, our dedicated webmail list, through which members share and discuss applied linguistics-related news, achievements and opportunities.

We maintain close links to institutions and organisations with an interest in applied linguistics. BAAL is affiliated to AILA, the International Association of Applied Linguistics. BAAL is a registered charity (registered charity number 264800). Members of BAAL are automatically members of AILA.
