Member Recruitment Competition Resources

Thank you for signing up for the 2022 COPs Competition! The competition will run from Monday, 31 October, through Friday, 18 November. To recruit new members, we have put together resources on this page to help you approach colleagues to join TESOL and discuss the benefits of membership. 
  • If colleagues want to join online, please refer them to, select a membership category, and complete the online application. At checkout, they will see a dropdown named "COP Competition Promotion Code," where they need to choose your COP, so it gets credit for the referral
  • If colleagues want to join over the phone, please refer them to call member services and mention your COP's name to receive credit for the referral: 
    • Toll-Free in the U.S.: 888.891.0041   
    • Outside the U.S.: +1 703.518.2501
  • If colleagues want to complete the PDF membership application, please have them send it by email to members@tesol.or and include your COP's name as the referrer. 
The Interest Section and the Professional Learning Network with the most confirmed new members will be declared the winners of the 2022 COPs Competition. TESOL will highlight the winning COPs on TESOL's communication channels and award them with one $25 Amazon gift card for five leaders participating in the competition.

Please let Nancy Flores know if you have any questions. Thank you for participating and making TESOL a welcoming and engaging community!
