About Membership Fees

The Christian Educators in TESOL used to be one of several caucuses of the TESOL International Association.  When TESOL discontinued the caucus system in 2008, Christian educators in TESOL formed their own independent organization which is open to all who wish to network with others who share a belief in Jesus Christ, not just to individuals who are members of TESOL International.  We have incorporated and have a well-established board of directors, which meets by conference call almost monthly, a website, a twice-yearly newsletter, an annual CELT conference, a ListServ, and, our latest addition, a journal. Through the generosity and voluntarism of various members, this has all been provided gratis, but is not free. We now need to charge an annual membership fee in order to continue and expand what we do. We are asking you to partner with us in creating a first-class program of professional development for Christians who teach English to speakers of other languages--whether they are volunteers or professionals--by paying dues of $10.00 for membership in the coming year.  


If you are a student or reside in a country with a gross national product of $15,000 US or less (i.e. eligible for TESOL International’s global membership benefit), we do not ask you to pay this $10.00.  You can choose the Student Membership or Global Membership option when you initiate the membership process.
