CATESOL Update: Membership Pricing

CATESOL has great news! The one-year membership rate is now a flat $30 for all! Our CATESOL Leadership feels very strongly that the proposed change to our membership pricing is integral in helping the organization continue to fulfill its mission of professional development, research, and advocacy viewed through the lens of diversity, equity, inclusion, and access.
Starting on May 1st (Happy May Day!), when you log into the CATESOL website, the site will reflect this new rate.  All one- and two-year members who have paid through at least April 30, 2023 will receive an automatic one-year extension of their existing membership.  If you are renewing and your amount due is greater than $30, please contact Susan Gaer, our Membership Coordinator, at She can help update your records and provide an invoice reflecting the new rate.

We know that there is still more work to do, so we are also working to ensure that our colleagues have equitable access to CATESOL membership, regardless of financial circumstances. In that spirit, if you feel that you can provide financial support for others to join CATESOL, please visit the CATESOL Education Foundation page to make a tax-deductible donation: Be sure to note that this donation is for the CATESOL membership fund in your donation submission.

We are excited about the access opportunities this new pricing structure will provide – and we hope that you will share this news with friends and colleagues to help us grow the organization. By increasing awareness and participation in CATESOL, we can remain solvent and provide even more member benefits and robust professional development and networking opportunities.

We appreciate the variety of ways that our membership supports CATESOL. We thank you in advance for your patience as we work through all the intricacies of this transition so that we can fulfill our goal of supporting all students, instructors, administrators, and others serving multilingual learners.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the CATESOL leadership at 

And below is a flier for you to share this great CATESOL membership news with your colleagues!
