  • Automatic renewal: Members have the option to sign up for annual automatic renewal via online payment or the PDF form. Automatic renewal may be canceled at any time by contacting TESOL member services.
  • Purchase Orders: TESOL will provide an invoice in response to a purchase order; however, memberships will not be activated until payment is received.
